Houghton Hall's Marquess of Cholmondeley has spoken of the privilege of being made president of the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Society (RNAA) and overseeing this month's Royal Norfolk Show.

Lord Cholmondeley has written the introduction to the show's programme and describes the two-day gathering as "an iconic event in our county's calendar".

Welcoming visitors to the show held at the Royal Norwich Showground in Costessey, he said it was "a privilege to be invited to be president of the RNAA in its 175th year".

He added: "The show continues to be not only one of the largest in the UK but also one of the best, with participants and exhibitors coming from across the country to compete in the many equine and livestock competitions.

"As a showcase for promoting food, farming and countryside, there will be a range of displays and demonstrations, showing farming of the past to the innovations of future-looking, hi-tech machinery.

"Firmly rooted in agriculture, the show is also a celebration of all that our wonderful county has to offer."

"Whatever the weather, the show will provide fun and interest for all the family and for all ages," he said.
