This year’s Devon County Show has an exceptionally busy line-up of farming, food, rural life and entertainment in store for visitors

There will be thousands of farm animals and horses, a huge food and drink pavilion, a fabulous floral art, gardens and rural crafts feature, a busy countryside area and a wide variety of exciting and entertaining displays.

A new feature is the ‘Watering Hole’; visitors will be able to tuck into local food and drink whilst listening to a packed programme of music.

Visitors will also be invited to take part in the celebrations for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which takes place on Show Saturday.
