As always the show promises to be a great family day out with something for all ages from the H&M Dog Display team and Mersey Morris Men performances to face painting and fairground rides.

The local army reserves will have a range of activities for visitors and there’ll also be a mobile climbing rock at the show.  Meanwhile, visitors will be treated to live musical performances from local Knowsley children. 

There will also be the fabulous craft marquee and Geraud Produce Market.

All of this is in addition to the stunning floral marquee which will house hundreds of fantastic horticultural displays.

A free shuttle bus service to the show ground will operate from locations across the borough. Car parking is limited so visitors are encouraged to use the free shuttles. Timetables will be published two weeks before the event on the website.
