Royal Cheshire County Show 2022: About
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.
If you want to experience and celebrate all that is great and good about the countryside then The Royal Cheshire County Show is the only place to be, as it brings together the many interesting and fascinating aspects of farming and rural life in the beautiful and unique county of Cheshire.

Organizer: Cheshire Agricultural Society (CAS)
The Cheshire Agricultural Society (CAS) was founded in 1838 by the landed gentry of the county. The inspiration came from the founder President; Field Marshall Viscount Combermere, who was one of The Duke of Wellington’s generals at Waterloo. He later received his Field Marshall’s baton through his successful campaigns in Asia. Born Stapleton Cotton into a landowning family, he had travelled much in England and had observed better farming practice in the drier region of England than in his native Cheshire.
At the age of 65, the Field Marshall persuaded his fellow Cheshire landowners to set into motion a whole series of competitions to encourage better farming methods. This spirit was also transferred to competitions for rural people to ‘improve the moral and industrious way of life’.
