This summer the Royal Cornwall Show will play host to a special celebration of HRH The Prince of Wales’s contribution to the countryside, environment and rural communities in the UK.

In total, 70 of His Royal Highness’ patronages will come together in a unique and colourful parade highlighting their work and achievements to date.

The event will promote the collective understanding of the scope of countryside, environment and rural activity and provide a legacy to share best practice in the future.

Claire Saunders, director of The Prince’s Countryside Fund said: “I am thrilled to be involved in organising this extraordinary event. It is the first time that so many of HRH The Prince of Wales’s rural charities have been brought together and will be a marvellous demonstration of countryside resilience and the collective impact of what can be achieved for future generations with a collaborative and united approach.”

More than 70 charities are planning to be involved and have a role in the parade. The event will showcase broad themes including wildlife and conservation, native breeds, food and farming, and heritage and skills. The breadth and diverse range of charities taking part in the parade provide an ideal opportunity to draw together and catalogue their collective achievements to date.

HRH The Prince of Wales’s charities illustrate the complex and interconnected nature of the countryside and the features which make it unique, and to be cherished for future generations. It is being supported by Jaguar Land Rover, Rodda’s, Davidstow, Ginsters, South West Water and the Eden Project and delivered by HPower.

The Prince’s Countryside Parade will take place in the main arena on Thursday June 7 2018 at the Royal Cornwall Show.
