County Show returns


Bondholder The Derbyshire County Show has announced that this year’s show will return to its spiritual home of Elvaston Showground.

The 139th Derbyshire County Show will be held on Sunday 23rd June 2019 and is expected to attract thousands of people from across the region by showcasing the very best that the county has to offer.

The show was first held at Elvaston in 1970 but after heavily waterlogged conditions forced the 2016 event to be cancelled, the event was moved to Locko Park, in Spondon. Now after a two year recovery period, the ground at Elvaston is ready to host the event again.

Chairman Edward Hicklin said: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to be returning to the Show’s spiritual home of Elvaston Showground and we want to make sure this is a triumphant return. With that in mind, we would love to hear from anyone who might have ideas on how we can improve the show, or attractions we could look into securing. The County Show has a very grand history stretching back to 1860 and we have a proud reputation to uphold, staging an event which has something for every member of the family, and celebrates all that is good about the countryside on our doorstep".

The committee have already lined up a new star attraction for the summer event, with Big Pete’s Monster Trucks taking to the main arena.
