Royal Three Countries Show
Schools Go Free

Three Counties has a long-standing agenda to promote the land-based industries, including agriculture, horticulture, forestry and rural enterprise, through a programme of educational activities. These take place at all of our shows, check out the educational experiences that you can enjoy at the Royal Three Counties Show below.


Every year we offer any school or home educated students from within the three counties (Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire) the chance to apply for the opportunity to come to the Friday of the Royal Three Counties Show for free. In 2023 we welcomed over 3,000 school children to the show.

We will continue to offer and expand our range of workshops available to schools and home educators which will be available to be pre-book in 2024. Our aim is that every child attending as part of the free ticket scheme will have the opportunity to attend a free, structured workshop to help underpin their learning.

We also offer discounted entry for college and university students if attending as part of an organised educational visit, for more information contact Jayne Unwin, Shows Education Executive.

School applications for Friday 14th June at Royal Three Counties Show 2024 are now closed.

Home educator applications are now closed.


We are pleased to announce the return of the Royal Three Counties Show Occasional/Challenge badge for 2024.

Both the Scouting and Guiding communities are invited to participate in the badge initiative, as part of this you will receive free entry into the show with a discounted ticket available for parents/guardians (this must be pre booked through the group’s Leader).

The aim of this badge is to celebrate and learn what the countryside has to offer to people of all ages and backgrounds. To this end, the badge can be gained by:

  • Attending the Royal Three Counties Show for one day on either Saturday 15 or Sunday 16 June 2024. Admission is free, providing you pre-book by the deadline.
