2018 Kent County Show
Despite being the hottest weekend of the year so far and the England v Sweden World Cup Quarter Final on the Saturday, the organisers of the 2018 Kent County Show are delighted to report that 74,000 people attended the event this year.
The highlight of the Show was The Household Cavalry Musical Ride, performing twice a day on all three Show days. This incredible display tapped into the mood of the nation and it received huge cheers during and after each performance.
With the high temperatures predicted in advance, organisers were able to ensure that both visitor and animal safety and welfare was key during three exceptionally warm days. The Grand Parade of Livestock was reviewed with some of the livestock not taking part. Water, shade and seating were provided around the showground, which saw increased attendance on Sunday.
The dates for the 2019 Show will be Friday 5th, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July when the Kent County Agricultural Society will be celebrating its 90th Show.
