Royal Cornwall Show
There’s something for every member of the family at the Royal Cornwall Show.
It’s the county’s biggest annual event and is brim-full of exhibits and activities which offer so much in the way of entertainment, competition, information, shopping and all that’s best in food and farming.
It's a time and place to meet old friends, conduct business, enjoy Cornwall in all its glory and to welcome thousands of visitors from outside our county.
More than two centuries later our aim is to keep raising the standard. It's good for agriculture, good for tourism, good for the economy, the environment and good for the soul!
This is a top agricultural show which attracts increasing numbers of animals, entered into the hundreds of classes which are refined each year. And year on year people travel from further and further afield in the hope of coming away with an award.
Dog and goat sections; rare breed classes. A top flower show and thriving countryside area. Rabbits, cage birds, pigeons - even bees get noticed here!
We support and promote Cornish-grown and Cornish-produced food both in the trade section and in our own cafes and restaurants.
Main ring entertainment is mounted on a grand scale and the traditional steam fair is a colourful extravaganza; there are stages and avenues alive with music, song and dance.
You can come to the Royal Cornwall Show with a single-minded ambition to buy a tractor or a car. Here is where you will see them all on display.
Interested in crafts? Planning a wedding? Want to shop in Wadebridge town centre? Is woodland your thing?
Whatever your interest, we aim to make you very welcome here.

Western Swimming Club, Swim, Sauna and Steam room
Western Swimming Club naturist SWIM, SAUNA and STEAM room sessions are every Friday.
The club appreciates that the first visit to a naturist swimming and sauna session can be a bit daunting for some. From past experience, usually the female partner of a couple. There are also a number of couples where the female partner is reluctant to go nude on a first visit. To make it easier for those that feel this way to try the sessions, for the first couple of visits, it is "Costume's Optional" for females; that's swimming costumes or bikini's optional.
Over 90% of the females that have tried the "Costume's Optional" sessions have either taken off their costume before the end of the session or returned next time without a costume!
So, if you want to attend, but are female, please remember that for your first two sessions you don't have to strip off, unless you want to. There will be no pressure on you to go "au-naturel".
The club has also arranged to use the "Family Changing Rooms" adjacent to the sauna and steam room, for those females that don't want to change in the usual mixed environment; just ask and you can use the family changing rooms.
Currently there is FREE admission for all females on their first two visits and if they become members. Please remember that Photo ID, with proof of address, is needed for a first visit.
If you have a female partner or friend that would maybe like to give it a try, then please encourage them to join
Admission charges for visitors & guests:
£12 (in Cash) per individual.
Aged 18 to 30 or female: £6 per individual.
Currently FREE admission for all females on their first two visits.
To let the club know you are interested in attending its swims please send us your contact details using the contact form. Please give the volunteers at least 48 hours notice and include the date/s that you would prefer to visit.Buy Tickets
