The largest one-day agricultural show in Warwickshire attracted more than 12,000 people to the showgrounds opposite Stoneleigh Park last year and is expecting huge crowds again on Saturday June 9.

It will be the 75th edition of the show, which is held every year by the Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society (KADAS).

Charlie Weetman, director of the Kenilworth Show, said: “We’re looking forward to celebrating 75 years of the Kenilworth Show and this year we have expanded the show yet again.

“We have worked hard to put on a diverse range of attractions and entertainment but most importantly we will be showcasing the very best of the region’s agriculture.

“It will be a celebration of rural life in Coventry and Warwickshire and we hope that everyone on the day enjoys the new attractions we have introduced.”

Among the attractions will be performances from Bolddog Lings Motor Cycle Display Team - Honda’s official and the UK’s number one motorcycle display team - as well as a parade of award-winning livestock, equestrian competitions, rifle shooting and the return of the Dog and Duck Show.

There will also be an education area where visitors can learn more about farming from institutions such as Moreton Morrell College.

Farming machinery will be on display at the show

A free shuttle bus will run from Kenilworth Clock Tower to the show on the hour throughout the day.

Entry to the Kenilworth Show starts from 9am on the day and children under-16 enter for free.

Advance tickets cost £10 and are available from Kenilworth Library or online here
