The final ever Royal Show starts today (7-10 July) and to mark the historic occasion Farmers Weekly has devised a tribute quiz.
“There will be a really special buzz around the showground, because this is the last show,” said Denis Chamberlain, RASE marketing director.
“Exhibitors are travelling from across the country and beyond to vie for a chance to take home a piece of history – and win one of the last prestigious ‘Royal’ rosettes. We are determined to give everyone a great show”.
We’ve dug out some pictures and facts about the Royal Show and want you to test your knowledge. All the correct entries will be entered into a prize draw and there’s a prize of a digital camera on offer for one lucky entrant.
There are eight questions in total with multiple choice answers. A sample question is:
Wind blew half of the roof from the grandstand in 1953 when the show was based at which UK seaside resort? Is the answer a) Bognor Regis b) Brighton or c) Blackpool.
