There is also a home and garden marquee, shopping marquee, rural craft marquee, food hall, large countryside area, a members’ lawn and more than 200 trade stands.

The organisers of the show have said it is important to inform and educate the wider population about the rural economy and the important role it plays in the UK.

This explains why there is such a diverse programme on offer from the livestock classes, home and garden classes, country pursuits, and Main Ring events, all of which make the Bucks County Show an all inclusive event for all ages.

Tickets can be obtained on the day and at various locations in the Buckinghamshire area prior to the show. These include Kings Eyecare & Eyewear in North Street, Leighton Buzzard.

Prices are £14 for adults, £5 for children or £12 for OAPs.

A family pass consisting of two adults and two children can be booked for £33. Tickets will be available on the day but they will cost more on the door.

There is also a free bus service between Station Way, Aylesbury, and the showground.
