Staffordshire County Show in on track to be a record breaking event attracting more people than ever before in the 200 year history, organisers said today.
Early ticket sales which have been on sale since April 1st have beaten sale levels in previous years sparking predictions that more people than ever before will attend the two day show on May 27 and 28.
The show is sponsored by South Staffordshire College. Richard Williams, chief executive of the Staffordshire and Birmingham Agricultural Society, which organises the show at the showground in Stafford, said it was a very promising start.
“The early bird ticket sales are definitely up on previous years which is excellent, we expect more than 60,000 to attend the show over the two days but it looks like we may attract a record breaking crowd this year,” Mr Williams said.
“We know people who have attended in previous years are usually eager to book under the early bird saving as they know what a fantastic event it is.
“The advanced tickets are now on offer and due to it being held in half-term we are urging parents to get organised so they can take advantage of the discounted prices and give their children something to look forward to.
“It is an extremely affordable day out where families can bring their own picnics to avoid any added expense and hours of free fun.
“The performance of Bolddog Lings motorcycle stunt display team is a popular attraction but there really is something for everyone from animal lovers to art and craft enthusiasts to rural activities.
“We have so many attractions and mini shows within a large county show which we are so very proud of.”
This year will include a food hall, activities for children hosted by Woodfest including den building, a country pursuit area, trade stands, an animal experience hosted by South Staffordshire College, along with the traditional agricultural show displays and competitions.
Advanced ticket sales are now available from the show office or the website http://www.staffscountyshowground.co.uk/ along with various outlets in the region.
