Clock is ticking on Early Bird tickets

The organisers of Newport Show are urging people to buy discounted early bird tickets before prices rise in light of strong advance sales.

The cost of entry to the event at the Chetwynd Deer Park on July 9 will increase at 5pm on July 1. Current prices are up to 20 per cent lower than the entry fee on the day.

Adult and family tickets will rise to the gate price of £15 and £35 respectively. A child ticket for five to 15-year-olds will go up to £5 and senior prices for people aged over 65 will become £14. Children under five have free entry.

This year’s packed programme includes more than 100 livestock classes, a horse and dog show and brand new Festival of Food, featuring Great British Bake Off star Nadiya Hussain. It will include live food and drink demonstrations, workshops for adults and children and a street food market.

Other activities at the show will be family entertainment, vintage vehicle and machinery displays, live music, trade stands, antique stalls, schools marquee, handicraft and horticulture competitions, and fairground rides.

Show President Martin Hall said: “Last year the show attracted a record audience of 13,000 and we are hoping to beat that on July 9.

“The show is a popular fixture in the agricultural community but offers a great day out for all the family with entertainment for everyone. The newly extended Festival of Food is set to be a valuable addition to the programme and we’re anticipating big interest from fans of the Great British Bake Off with the first visit to Shropshire for last year’s winner Nadiya Hussain.”
