The Kent County Show organisers have supported ten Kent-based new businesses with a free stand space within the inaugural Enterprise Zone at this year’s show on 6-8 July.

The Kent County Show is a celebration of ‘the best of Kent’ and this year, following an interview, ten local small businesses have been successful in securing a trade stand space in the new Enterprise Zone area of the show. All ten start-ups have been trading for less than a year.

Tradestand coordinator, Rosie Gouldsworthy, said “We are delighted to be inviting these ten local start-ups to exhibit at this year’s Kent County Show. Each one offers something unique and different and we’re excited to be a part of highlighting the best in new Kent business.”

The main ring attraction for the 89th Kent County Show will be the Household Cavalry Musical Ride, who will perform twice a day, every day in the Astor Ring. Joining them will be the ‘Every One Remembered’ sculpture. Designed by award-winning artist Mark Humphrey, it features the ‘Centenary Soldier’ standing on a plinth of limestone sourced from the Somme, finished in bombshell brass and joined by thousands of poppies dedicated by the public which flutter around the soldier. The traditional livestock judging, show jumping, food halls, flower show, vintage vehicles and antiques area will all be featured, alongside the exciting UK Pole Climbing Championships.
