Kent County Show Starts Today

The Kent County Show opens today at the Detling Showground and is one of the few events of the year where you can see animals up close, before you eat one of their cousins for lunch!

The show returns after its 3-year ‘COVID’ absence and is open on the 8th, 9th & 10th of July 2022.

It is looking like a heatwave this weekend too, so it won’t just be the steak sandwiches that will end up looking crispy.

The show is the region’s showcase event for farming, agriculture and countryside life. Visitors can see animals, horses, vintage vehicles, retail stands and much more as thousands converge on the stunning surroundings of the Kent Showground for a celebration of the best in the county.

There will be plenty of trade stands for you to purchase anything from a dog collar to a new garden chair. There are also plenty of competitions where you can compete in a number of categories for livestock, equine, floral art or even heritage vehicles. If you are not competing, you can still watch people sticking rosettes to various animals throughout the day.

Everything comes at a price and this show is no exception, with tickets costing £22 for an adult and free for children under 13 years old, although they must be accompanied by a paying adult. Fancy a weekend ticket? Tough luck as they are not available. Ha!

All demonstrations, exhibitions and ring entertainment are free for all to enjoy if you can see through the crowds. Once inside the show you don’t have to spend another penny, unless you mean ‘needing the toilet’! Yes, free toilets are provided too.

The Kent County Show is run and managed by the Kent County Agricultural Society which is a charity

Dogs are allowed into the show too, as long as they are kept on a lead. Although, there is no mention of how long the lead needs to be! But anyone found leaving a dog in a car this weekend will probably be imprisoned for many years or lynched on the way back to your vehicle.

The show opens at 9am and last entry is up until 5pm, which gives you more than enough time to walk around and see how many freebies you can get. The show closes at 6pm every day, so if you pay the full price to enter just before 5pm, then you really are quite stupid.

Have a fantastic time if you go to the show and do not forget to take plenty of water and sun cream, as it’s going to be a scorcher!
