Hailing the two-day event as a “brilliant success”, Mr Taylor said he was “absolutely thrilled” with this year’s show.

He said: “I’m confident we will reach 85,000 plus visitors and I’m hopeful we will get more than that. We will not know the final figure until we hear back from supermarkets how many tickets they sold.

“It’s been incredibly busy, we have even filled some of the overflow carparks.

“Everybody has thoroughly enjoyed the show and it’s been wonderful to see all these young families about.”

Chief executive Greg Smith said: “There is a record number of livestock from beef and dairy cattle to some of the rarest breeds in the world.

“There are new displays such as the heavy horse musical drive demonstration, which will feature some of the largest and most beautiful horses in the world, which really adds a traditional feel to the show.”

  • There is a misconception that schools give the day off for the Norfolk show but this is not the case. The day is actually one of the 5 teacher training inset days which government requires schools to schedule during the academic year. So in recent years there seems to have been a common sense approach to schedule 1 of them to coincide with the show. There are plenty of families who do like to go and scheduling an inset day avoids the problem of schools having to refuse permission for parents to take them and issue fines if they do, per the new regulations. I took my family today and we did enjoy it, albeit the entrance prices were quite expensive, and I do feel quite strongly that to charge parking on top is unreasonable, but they've got you over a barrel given the location! However, we did find plenty to do for free once we were in so I suppose when compared to a day at a theme park where you spend a fortune on entrance and only get to go on a few rides because of the queues, it's not not so bad.
