"I am particularly excited that the county council will be exhibiting at the show this year, in a marquee jam-packed with information and fun activities for all the family.

"The show is a truly integral part of the Hertfordshire community and its influence reaches far beyond the two day annual show. By maintaining an extensive 'fun and farming education' programme for children, together with actively promoting Hertfordshire food products and services, the Hertfordshire Show is becoming an increasingly important part of life in the county."
