Thousands of visitors flocked to the 2014 Hertfordshire County Show over the late May Bank Holiday weekend.

Paying punters were turned away at the gates due to “exceptionally high numbers”, leading the shows organisers to close the car parks.

More than 30,000 people rolled-up to the Redbourn showground over the weekend, even though heavy rain fell on the Saturday.

And with 24,000 people attending on the Sunday alone, a new attendance record was set.

Mike Harman, general manager and show secretary, told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “Another absolutely fantastic weekend combined with our emergency event organisational planning overcoming the wet weather related challenges.

“Having reached our maximum safety visitor numbers around 2.30pm on Sunday afternoon, we were obliged close the admission gates in the interest of public safety.

“After the extremely testing weather but successful experiences, we are looking forward to planning for the 2015 Show with confidence and enthusiasm.”
