The organisers of the Staffordshire County Show are hoping for the event’s biggest turn out yet this year.
The half term show, which will take place this year on May 29 and May 30, is set to see some of the country’s most spectacular attractions descend on the Showground in Weston Road, Stafford.
Richard Williams, Chief Executive of the Staffordshire and Birmingham Agricultural Society, said that a lot has been going on behind the scenes to ensure that the 2019 show is another “roaring success.”
He said: “We have had many enquiries from people across the country who want to come along and see what we have on offer.
“Last year we had a spike in advance ticket sales as it seemed people wanted to get prepared for half term, take advantage of the discounted rate and also avoid any queuing when they arrive.
“Advanced ticket sales were up 200 per cent on the year before and with the number of enquiries we’ve had this year already we expect people are looking to get prepared once again.
“Tickets at outlets across the county and beyond will go on sale from May 1, but visitors can also buy them on the gate without the discounted rate.
“We have got another great event lined up for everyone, all the family will have something to enjoy.”
The Bolddog Lings, who wowed audiences in 2017, will return to headline the event again and are set to keep crowds in the main ring entertained with fast-action motocross stunts. Featuring alongside them will be the Scurry Drivers with their fast-paced equestrian action.
The ever-popular Country Pursuits area will have the same line-up as last year with all manner of animals and activities to keep visitors entertained. The quack pack and sheep show always prove a hit and they will be making a welcome return.
There will also be all the usual trade stands, craft and antiques fairs as well as a cookery theatre.
