Backed by the Welwyn Hatfield Times, the event pulled in a whopping crowd, with organisers hailing it as a memorable showpiece.

Basking in bright sunshine, visitors turned out in their droves over the two-day event on Saturday and Sunday.

Speaking after the bumper weekend, show secretary Mike Harman said feedback had been “positive and complimentary” from visitors and exhibitors.

He added: “We are particularly delighted that yet again our family ticket sales hit a new record, a clear signal that our unique package of attractions and demonstrations combined with all-inclusive entertainment policy, is valued by our show supporters.

“As always, we will be reviewing all aspects of the show in the coming weeks with a view to making further improvements for next year.

“In the meantime, we are delighted that both our reputations as the best value for money community event in the county, and a leading UK county show, have been enhanced.”

Young William Ivara, who goes to St John’s VA CofE Primary School, in Digswell, scooped the primary school arts prize for three to six-year-olds.

Prizes were handed out for the best cattle on show.

It is the 127th show to be held, and highlighted the county’s agricultural past and future.
