Something for all the family at Shropshire County Show

Our annual event always pulls together an area of the West Mid Showground where our younger visitors can spend some time having family fun and entertainment - and this year is no different.

The 2022 Kids Zone will offer circus skills, donkey rides, face painting, magic and more - and we also have a new wildlife display for you this year with a ‘hands on’ approach with a variety of animals including snakes, spiders, scorpions, insects, meerkats and other cute and cuddlies! All of the animals are captive-bred, hand-reared and used to being handled in a show environment.

Mini members storytime

Kath from Usborne Books is looking forward to sharing some special stories with our mini visitors and will be hosting a storytelling session at 2pm on the day - but families are welcome to go and visit her ‘book bus’ at any time throughout the show and have a go at magic painting and even a bit of playdough…

Glasshouse Mini

This year’s Kids Zone will welcome the Glasshouse Mini drama group to the site who have a few performances in store for us - and we always love to sing and dance the day away - you will be able to spot them in their brightly coloured tops!

Left, right, left, right

Always a popular spot for the children - we have the E Company 8 Rifles with their BATAK reaction system game as well as The Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers with their recovery truck and the Queen’s Dragoon Guards (Welsh Cavalry) with their Pony mascot!

Youth Zone

Drummond Outdoor are back with their canoes to get older children out onto the water (fingers crossed for warm weather!) and we are so pleased to welcome The Extreme Mountain Bike Show - the UK and Europe’s number one Mountain Bike, Trials/BMX demonstration Team led by the Multiple British and European Mountain Bike Trials Champion Danny Butler.

Monster Trucks

And it’s not just the Kids Zone that will capture the attention of our young visitors - you will spot our wandering entertainers Magic Kev and Juggling Jim making their way around the site throughout the day and our Monster Truck rides are returning for 2022 and can be found on the far side of the main ring!

We cannot wait to welcome you to the event and children aged 16 and under free of charge in our early-bird offer which is available until Friday, May 20th - click here to buy your advance tickets.
