Ulster Bank in Northern Ireland is working in partnership with the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) which launched the event today. This year’s Show will provide an exciting mix of food, farming excellence and showmanship alongside an exhilarating entertainment schedule.

Richard Donnan, Head of Northern Ireland, Ulster Bank, said at the launch: “As we mark our 9th year as principal sponsor of the Balmoral Show, Ulster Bank is proud of its continued partnership with one of the biggest events in Northern Ireland’s calendar. The Balmoral Show gives us the perfect platform to showcase our support for the agri-food industry and we want to let farmers and producers know that our expert teams are here to provide them with real and meaningful help for what matters as they continue to manage risk and seek out new opportunities.”

Highlights of the upcoming Show include the Agri Pavilion which will provide a platform for businesses to network, the NI Food Pavilion which will showcase over 100 local producers, and the Eikon Shopping Village for guests to shop for the goods on offer.

Rhonda Geary, RUAS Operations Director, said: “The four days of the Show will include all that is brilliant about Balmoral; grassroots agriculture alongside a mix of shopping, entertainment and attractions. We are delighted to see a marked increase in many livestock sectors including equine and beef, and are looking forward to a full house in May competing for prestigious Balmoral titles.”
