2022 was held at Ashley Hall. The location and its 75 acres made it a great venue. But the feedback, the response and the demand means even after our first year, we have already outgrown the site.

So, for 2023 we will be hosted by The Royal Cheshire Showground. A massive 250 acres of beautiful Cheshire countryside in Knutsford.
