Photo Sunday: Kent County Show

Last week, I shared pictures from my photo walk in the City of London. This week, in complete contrast, we’re off to the country, with images from yesterday’s visit to the Kent County Show.

The annual event, held at the Kent Showground in Detling, is a celebration of everything to do with farming and rural life. So it’s got livestock, crafts, entertainment, music – and food. So much food. It’s the kind of place you could quite easily bankrupt yourself just on strawberries and cream alone. But you can also buy clothes, jewellery, tractors, hot tubs, art… pretty much anything you can think of, so it’s a good idea to go with a fixed budget in mind. And there’s a funfair, a flower tent and a woodland area. We were there for nearly six hours and still didn’t see everything.

Highlights of our day included a display by the Metropolitan Police Mounted Branch, and the terrier racing, which is hilarious and adorable – if a tad noisy. The low point was when I stepped in something unmentionable in the cattle marquee. Yuck.

  1. I’ve been to a County Show for the first time this year and it was amazing. The only problem was that I wanted to overspend… well those were hubby’s words, I still believe £200 worth of mountain gear for the dog is justified (didn’t buy it in the end).
