One of Cornwall’s best-loved one-day agricultural shows returns this weekend three years after the last show took place in 2019 after a Coronavirus enforced hiatus.

Camborne Show will come to life once again this Saturday, July 16 at the showground on the north cliffs near Hell’s Mouth.

The 50-acre showground provides plenty of space for the ever-popular event and offers panoramic views across St Ives Bay.

The event’s organisers say they are looking forward to staging one of the region’s leading one-day agricultural shows once again.

They are positive that competitors, visitors, and traders will embrace the ever-popular show as they had done before the pandemic struck.

Reg Bennett, Chairman of Camborne Show Society said: "It has been a long wait since we were last able to hold a show, but we look forward to building on the success the committee have had in improving the show in recent years with increasing competitive entries and trade stands numbers."

Camborne Show’s busy schedule of competitions includes a horse section, which boasts national qualifier classes, showing jumping, cattle, goat, sheep, cage birds, horticulture, and domestic and craft sections.


There’s also a dog show that all are welcome to enter on the day but sadly, due to the avian flu outbreak, the poultry section was cancelled this year.

Mr Bennett added: "The weather forecast is looking good, and we can’t wait to welcome everyone to Camborne Show again on Saturday.

"It will be another day of great competition across the many sections, and we are expecting plenty of visitors to join us for a great day out.

"There will be the usual array of entertainment including a fun fair, music, children’s activities, steam and vintage vehicle section, a craft tent, and a selection of trade stands plus catering options and a beer tent for show-goers to enjoy.

"Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome and the gates open at 9 am."

A new feature for this year's show will be horse-drawn carriage rides around the showground and for the first time, a catalogue containing all the competitor and show information will be available.

Tickets are priced at £7.50 for adults, £5 for children aged 10 – 16 and under 10s go free.

Family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are £20.
