37. Royal Cornwall Show

Where: Wadebridge (19 miles)

When: 9 – 11 June 2016

How much: from £18 per adult / £5 per child per day (under 4’s are free)

This is Cornwall’s biggest annual event and has been going for over 220 years now (although back then it was more of a ploughing match between local farmers – it has come a long way since then!).

It is a showcase of Cornish life and sees the dedicated showground at Wadebridge transformed into a living town, bustling with life, energy, agriculture, entertainment and trade.

There are livestock displays and judging, the famous flower tent, steam and motor fairs and numerous events and entertainment.

There’s also a whole host of thrilling shows for families to enjoy, from stampede Roman riding to the motorbike tricks of the Kangaroo Kid (pictured).
