RUAS launches 150th Balmoral Show


The Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) has launched the 150th Balmoral Show in partnership with Ulster Bank.

Northern Ireland’s largest agri-food event will return to Balmoral Park from May 16 to May 19 and will once again extend to four days. The 2018 Show will also extend in size, as a new, permanent covered exhibition space, which will complement the existing Eikon Exhibition Centre, will offer 4,000sqm of additional exhibition space. The Dr E F Logan Hall will be operational in time for this year’s Show and will house the cattle throughout the 2018 event, replacing the former cattle marquee.

RUAS Chief Executive, Alan Crowe said: "We are thrilled to launch our 150th Balmoral Show, this is a very special year as we celebrate this landmark anniversary and hope that visitors will enjoy commemorating with us. Although there have been significant changes in the past 150 years, the essence of Balmoral Show has very much remained the same, whether your interest is farming, local food, shopping or family fun, the Show continues to deliver a unique day out and that’s what continues to bring visitors back year on year and has allowed the event to reach this milestone."
