Royal Cheshire County Show to feature monster trucks as main attraction

By on March 1, 2019

This year’s Delamere Dairy Main Ring attraction at the Royal Cheshire County Show is Big Pete & the Grim Reaper Monster Truck Team.

Visitors will have the chance to watch the 7.5 ton machines jumping over cars and crushing caravans.

Between displays the public are invited to meet the team in the holding area and there will be an opportunity to have photos taken with a real monster truck.

Show Director of the Cheshire Agricultural Society CIO, Rob Davenport comments; “We are excited to have Monster Trucks performing in the Main Ring this year, we are eagerly awaiting to see their action- packed performance which will thrill an audience of all ages.”

For 180 years, the Cheshire show has been the premier summertime agricultural event in the North West of England. In 2016 we reached an exciting milestone in our rich history when the honour of ‘Royal’ status was bestowed on the show by the Cabinet Office and 2018 marked the 180th anniversary of The Cheshire Agricultural Society.

With its roots firmly embedded in farming, the Cheshire show holds many competition classes for cattle, sheep, pigs and dairy goats. Hundreds of classes are also included for light and heavy horses, show jumping, rare breeds of livestock, poultry, pygmy goats, pigeons, cavies, rabbits and dog show.

The Royal County Cheshire Show will be taking place at Clay House Farm, Knutsford, Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th June 2019.
