The ethos of the Shropshire County Show has always been to bring people together and celebrate agriculture - and this includes our younger generations.
Much of our fun comes from the Shropshire Young Farmers who do a grand job every year of keeping the crowds entertained and showing off what they can do.
But we also love to see those even younger than our young farmers enjoying the event.
Our younger visitors love the animals and love the tractors and huge machinery we have on display across the showground, they get involved with our exhibitors and listen to the music and entertainment on the band stage - and they also love our kids zone!
The kids zone was launched in 2012 and over the past seven years has grown from one small tent to a whole field of activities.
For 2018 children can have their faces painted, watch the Animal man and Magic Kev in action, have a go at some circus skills with Juggling Jim, watch some extreme mountain biking and enjoy our ever-popular hay bale maze!
As this year is a music theme we also have Shropshire Music Service on hand to show the youngsters some instruments - and also some drumming for them to try their hand at!
And all of the above are free!
We have lots of other activities within the kids zone that have a small charge including our Giant Octopus softplay, go-karts, football, donkey rides, a gaming van, archery, canoeing and much more.
As we cannot always rely on the lovely British weather we have a large canopy area in the Kids Zone where people can sit down - and we also have a large covered tent for some of our activities.
Children under 14 get free entry to the Shropshire County Show and we are very much looking forward to seeing everyone filling the kids zone once again - see you on May 26th!
