May events: Don your tweeds for the Nottinghamshire County Show

Newark, Nottinghamshire

May is usually your first chance to enjoy the spring sunshine, so spend it wisely with an action-packed day at the Nottinghamshire County Show.

The arrival of spring heralds the coming of the Nottinghamshire County Show, held at the 26-acre Newark Showground. The show is a fantastic traditional event, promoting farming, food, rural life and heritage in Nottinghamshire and beyond.

Always a fun day out with plenty to explore, there really is something for everyone, from heart-racing motor cross stunts and live music performances to duck-herding dogs and dancing sheep. Foodies will love the Food Experience Marquee while wannabe athletes will leap at the chance to get active in the SportsZone.
