This year we’re delighted to announce that we are extending our opening hours on Wednesday 27 June to offer a new night-time experience, to complement the already ever popular day time show.

Packed with an extended Spire Solicitors Grand Ring programme, live music and great food and drink, the Royal Norfolk Show will offer for the first-time ever an exciting programme of events, not just throughout the day, but throughout the evening.

A full programme of entertainment and events will now run until 10pm and will include evening performances from the Adrenaline Tour Quad Bike Stunt team and the RAF Falcons, plus an evening programme of live music in the new Woodland Arena thanks to Jimmy’s Festival in association with Woodforde’s Brewery.

If that’s not enough, food and drink will be available into the evening with the Adnams Food and Drink Experience staying open till late, along with a host of other eateries offering a variety of food and drink including hog roast, noodles, crepes, fresh fruit, Woodforde’s beer, Bullards Gin and much more.

Plus, the Royal Norfolk Show has introduced a Mid-Summer Evening ticket for those who can’t make it for the whole day. Available online now, the mid-summer evening ticket provides entry to the show after 4pm.  The evening ticket costs £10 for adults and £5 for concessions. Tickers are valid from 4pm-10pm on the Wednesday only.  Parking is free after 4pm.

“We’re absolutely delighted to offer a brand-new evening experience to go alongside the traditional show,” says Mark Nicholas, Show and Programmes Director.  “Over the last few years Showgoers have been asking us to extend the show into the evening, so this year, we’re doing just that! So, whether you’re coming just for the day, the night or both we will have a packed programme of entertainment to make this year’s show not to be missed!”
