Over 10,000 people visited this year’s 134th Derbyshire County Show which took place on 23rd June

Despite the wet weather spirits were high. As well as stands offering an abundance of local produce such as fresh bread and meat, visitors could shop for everything from clothing to solar panels! There was a death-defying quad bike display and Cyril the Squirrel’s racing terriers as ever received an enthusiastic response from the crowd. There were attractions for all the family. Organisers, the Derbyshire Agricultural and Horticultural Society, reported good entries in all of the livestock, horse and dog sections and there were wonderful displays in the Horticultural and Floral Art Marquee. This year the Society was delighted to host the championships for the National Carnation Society and dianthus of every description were on display.
