Defra will have a corporate presence at the following rural and agricultural shows up to 31 August. We will be attending additional shows beyond this date.

28-29 June: The Royal Norfolk Show
2-5 July: The Royal Show, at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire

All five Ministers will be attending the Royal Show between 2-4 July.
With regards to the other shows on this list, we are currently putting plans in place to ensure that where possible Ministers attend, based on relevance to their individual portfolios and availability.
Additionally, Ministers may of course choose to attend further shows where there is not a corporate presence. For example, Lord Rooker attended the Royal Cornwall Show on 9 June.
