The 2017 Show saw the highest number of entries received for over five years in cattle, sheep and wool classes. The Society hopes to increase this for 2018 with schedules and online entries being released on 3rd April.

Lucy Hegarty, show manager of the Kent County Show, said: “We are extremely proud of the work the stewards and exhibitors have done to increase the entries at the Show. We try to offer a wide range of classes and will amend the classes offered each year depending on the breeds attending the Show.”

The Kent County Agricultural Society also encourage younger members to attend the Show through the Kent Young Farmers Clubs. With over 400 young people and leaders involved, it is said to be one of the largest gatherings of Young Farmers showing animals in the country. The Show will also be encouraging young people, including those already showing with Kent Young Farmers to enter the Young Handler classes in the Main Lines this year. The winners of both the cattle and sheep classes qualify for the East of England Smithfield Festival Young Stock Person of the Year.

The Kent County Show, held on 6, 7, 8 July will also feature the Household Cavalry Musical Ride who will be performing twice a day in the Astor Ring, Food Halls, a newly located Garden Life marquee, live music and vintage vehicles. For younger visitors to the Show, the Tractor Ted interactive area will offer free activities including a bouncy castle and digger driving.
