The annual agricultural event is expected to attract more than 90,000 people, who will see what the counties of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire have to offer. This year, the festivities are curated by Herefordshire so expect to sip cider and sample strawberries, as well as discover the region's rich cultural heritage.

Freshfields Fruit Ltd will tell the story of soft fruit production in the county, while The National Trust's Weir Garden will be on hand with fun activities from the National Trust's "50 things to do before you're 11 " programme.

The founders of Herefordshire-based Two Farmers Crisps will share their story and ethos, explaining how they keep air miles low, use renewable energy on the farm and create 100% compostable packaging. They were the first crisp brand to create a fully compostable bag.

Some of the country's finest livestock will compete for the title of "Best in Show", with thousands of show entries expected. Countryfile presenter and Royal Three Counties Show Ambassador, Adam Henson (pictured above), will answer questions in "Ask the Farmer" sessions and educate visitors about his animals at Cotswold Farm Park, some of which he plans to bring along to the show.
