The Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) has launched the 148th Balmoral Show, in partnership with Ulster Bank, with promises that this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever.

This year’s Show promises the usual components of food, farming excellence and showmanship alongside an exciting entertainment schedule from 11th – 13th May 2016.

Royal Ulster Agricultural Society, Chief Executive, Colin Mc Donald commented “We were extremely encouraged by the increase in activity at the 2015 Show. We are determined to build on that success. The 2016 Show will be bigger again with more livestock competition, more stands and displays and most importantly more to see, do and enjoy.”

Nigel Walsh, Director, Commercial Banking NI, Ulster Bank, says: “This is Ulster Bank’s eighth year as principal sponsor of the Balmoral Show, and fittingly our support for the agri-food sector continues to grow. We see our involvement in the show as a real demonstration of Ulster Bank’s commitment to the sector, and indeed, we have significant funds available to support it. We are here to provide real and meaningful help for what matters to our customers - from primary producers through to innovative food and drink manufacturers - and we look forward to further showcasing that.”

Balmoral Show promises to be bigger and better this year as tens of thousands of people flock to Ireland’s largest agri-food event which will see a further increase in size by 10% for 2016.
