THE Royal County of Berkshire show will be returning this weekend, with more new attractions and shopping opportunities available.

The Newbury showground is all set for another year of fun, animals and shopping.

Running from Saturday, September 21 to Sunday, September 22, the popular annual event will see an extreme bike battle, Guards Polo Club and the Forage Pageant - a demonstration of the agricultural advances in dairy production, which will be celebrating the improvements in modern machinery, as audiences are taken on a journey through the different stages of production.

There will also be competitions such as the retraining of racehorses, show-jumping; the grand parade of livestock; the parade of hounds and stunning balloons.

Weather permitting, the balloons will rise from the arena at the end of each day.
