The East of England Show, Peterborough, is to be the venue for the English National Charolais Show for 2010.

Following the demise of the Royal Show and the success of the 2009 show in hosting a regional feature show for the breed, Charolais chief executive David Benson said the venue provided an excellent opportunity for the breed.

And the entries are set to be placed by leading Welsh breeder Kevin Thomas of the Moelfre herd, West Wales.

Schedules will be available from March onwards by contacting livestock secretary Kerry Buttriss – kbuttriss@eastofengland.org.uk
