The Royal Cornwall Show is back this week and here’s everything you need to know. 

The annual event, which is set to attract tens of thousands of people, will kick off from Thursday 8 June and run until Saturday 10 June. It's held at the Wadebridge Showground in north Cornwall.

Since the show was founded in Bodmin in 1793, it has transformed over the years to offer an ever-growing variety of attendees from food providers to wedding venues and artists or garden wares.

There’s more than 1,000 trade stands expected to attend this year. You can see the schedule for each day here.
