PRIZE cattle, sheep, and more than 200 trade stands can be seen at this year’s Bucks County Show on Thursday, September 1.

Billed as one of the country’s best one-day agricultural shows, the event will also offer all the usual demonstrations, rural crafts, horse showing and show jumping at Weedon Park near Aylesbury.

Special attractions this year include the Band of the Royal Corps of Signals and the Metropolitan Mounted Police Activity Ride.

The band, which regularly performs at the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, will travel from its home in Blandford in Dorset for the day.

The Metropolitan Mounted Police Activity Ride has starred at venues such as Olympia in London and the NEC in Birmingham. Horses jump through fire, a paper wall, and complete fast crossovers. Riders can remove their stirrups, tunics and saddles while negotiating a series of jumps.

Other attractions will include displays of vintage tractors, a shopping marquee and a home and garden marquee.

A free bus service will run throughout the day from Station Way in Aylesbury to the showground. The first bus leaves Aylesbury at 9.30am and the last bus leaves the showground at 6.30pm.

Advance tickets are available from outlets including Scotts Trading and G H Stanton and Son Butchers in Winslow, and Grendon Village Stores in Grendon Underwood. Bookings can also be made on the show website.

Tickets on the gate are £12 for adults; £30 for groups of two adults and two children; £6 for under-16s; and £10 for pensioners.

Gates open at 8am, and the show finishes at 6pm.
