The Hertfordshire County Show is both honoured and proud to announce the re-naming of their premier showcase Display Ring to the Queens Diamond Jubilee Arena.

The distinctive new Queens Diamond Jubilee Arena signs also incorporate 10-year-old Katherine Dewars winning national competition design for the Jubilee emblem.


Mike Harman, the Show Secretarysays,We are absolutely delighted to be granted Royal permission for the new Queens Diamond Jubilee Arena.

'We are looking forward to celebrating the Queens Diamond Jubilee and hosting the biggest Red, White and Blue street party in Hertfordshire on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd June. To support our street party theme, Show visitors are warmly invited to wear Red, White and Blue over the weekend.'
