Royal Three Counties Show 2019
The Three Counties Agricultural Society will be running the Royal Three Counties Show occasional badge again for 2019 and will take place at the show on the 14-16th June. Participation in the badge is free and available to Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Young Leaders and also the Guiding community. We also offer a discounted ticket for a parent/guardian to attend which can be 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 one day between Friday 14th June and Sunday 16th June 2019. Admission is free providing you pre-book by the deadline.
- Completing the tasks set out on the badge criteria at the show (a copy of this will be available with the application form).
The challenge badges will be available for Leaders pre-booked to pick up at the show from the showground office and should be presented to young people at a normal section meeting after the event.
Typically we expect units to attend as a group, with one overall Leader and one more Leader per 4 Beavers, 6 Cubs or 10 Scouts. These Leaders (including Young Leaders) in uniform will be offered free pre-booked tickets to the show. Where there is a child with additional needs that means additional adult support is required, please contact us to make these additional arrangements. In addition, one parent per child will be offered a discounted pre-booked ticket at £17.00 to enter the show. The showground offers free parking to all that attend (with special parking for mini-bus and similar transport). All tickets applications should be submitted by the unit Leader and sent in one transaction to Tessa Warby at Tessa.Warby@threecounties.co.uk or alternatively sent by post to Three Counties Showground, Malvern, Worcestershire, WR13 6NW. Applications must be received by Monday 20th May 2019 for the 2019 show and you will need to provide a mobile contact number for emergencies during your attendance. For more information please contact Tessa Warby at: Tessa.Warby@threecounties.co.uk
The Three Counties Showground in Malvern (postcode WR13 6NW) is a large, safe site and well sign posted from motorways and main roads in the area. However the roads are likely to be busy on show days – so please allow plenty of time to get the showground. The showground includes a lost children and items stand (in case of problems) and has plenty of toilet and refreshment facilities. When you pre-book your tickets you’ll also be provided with details of a meeting point.
We hope that you’ll consider taking your Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to this unique event and get your young people to gain this Occasional Badge!
