Get ready for the Royal Norfolk Show, 29-30 June 2016

Join us at the UK’s largest two-day county show. Celebrate Norfolk’s heritage. Learn more about food and farming with our Grow it, Cook it, Eat it activities. Enjoy the retail experience.  This year’s show promises to be action packed with something for everyone.

What’s it all about?

Grow it, Cook it, Eat it will bind together many of the activities at the Show to promote agriculture and food production in Norfolk. These include: Mr Mawkin’s Farm, cattle and livestock rings, Countryside Area, machinery past and present, Flower and Garden Show, cookery theatre, nominated catering outlets and the Adnams Food and Drink Experience. Our education trails will be structured to encourage an understanding of the past and enable the learning of discovery and innovation for the future. The Discovery Zone and Innovation Hub will play a key role with Grow it, Cook it, Eat it.

Celebrating our Heritage is an important part of the Show celebrating the achievements and successes of our local institutions.  A number of well-known local organisations including Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Norfolk Chamber of Commerce, Countrysiders, Cub Scouts and RAF Marham will celebrate a significant milestone this year and many of them will be useing the Show as a platform for their celebrations. We are thrilled that RAF Marham has chosen the Show to celebrate its centenary.

The Retail Experience is a key part of the Show and we are proud to promote the 650+ businesses who will be trading at Norfolk’s largest outdoor shopping experience. Ranging from top-end retailers to bespoke Norfolk goods we have an eclectic range of shops offering luxury goods, clothing, garden design and furniture, cars, banking and professional services. There will be a range of agricultural suppliers present, many with state of the art farming and agricultural equipment on sale.
