The Royal Cornwall Show has revealed the numbers that attended last week’s three-day event.
In total, 118,201 people passed through the Royal Cornwall gates across the three days, which was slightly down on 2022 numbers of 120,671.
Show secretary, Chris Riddle, said: “We had the most amazing weather for both the build-up and the staging of the show, however we are not surprised that we are not quite at the attendance levels of 2022, a combination of excitement of the show returning last year, and with everyone watching their wallets a little closer, we expected it to be difficult to match, but all in all, it is still a very good attendance.”
He added: “We are really grateful for the support of all those that visit, compete and trade at the show. The atmosphere that we have become known for really shone through, especially so in the livestock and equine sections, where we saw some of the highest competition, both in numbers and quality, we have seen for some time.”
