Held beside the Airfield Business Park in Market Harborough, the Leicestershire County Show is returning as a two day event on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August. The event is dog-friendly and organisers have ensured the ground is fully accessible to those with mobility issues.

“We can’t wait to get this fun-filled weekend started,” says David Young, Leicestershire County Show Director. “This promises to be a great way for families in Leicestershire to spend their bank holiday weekend. There are so many fantastic main arena events this year and we’ve made sure that there’s something for everyone.

“We’re honoured to have the RAF Falcons parachute display team attend in this the RAF’s centenary year. The team is in high demand and they’ll put on a spectacular display for our crowds at noon on both days.”

The Leicestershire County Show’s main arena will combine traditional agricultural events with adrenaline-fuelled excitement. The event will host jousting from Knights of Nottingham, a Mounted Games tournament involving fast-paced relays and obstacle runs on ponies, space to test kicking skills with the Leicester Tigers, a classic car and tractor rally and much more.
