NTU students and colleagues head to this year’s Nottinghamshire County Show

This year’s Nottinghamshire County Show returns for the first time in two years on 14 May, and this year it will have a distinctly NTU flavour.

Professor Edward Peck, Vice-Chancellor at Nottingham Trent University is the Show’s current President and will be welcoming a contingent of students and colleagues from the School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences who will be providing a behind the scenes look at life on NTU’s Brackenhurst campus.

Thousands of people from across the region, including farmers, exhibitors, local producers and members of the public, are expected to attend to enjoy a host of activities including entertainment, music, livestock displays, a family-friendly dog show and a food and drink festival.

Visitors will be able to meet NTU’s equine science and wildlife specialists to find out more about the innovative research and teaching that takes place, such as the world-changing vertical farming research.

There will also be an agricultural heritage exhibition – a display of agricultural artefacts and tools along with information curated by NTU students.

Business owners will also be able to speak to advisors to see what support and opportunities are available from consultancy, recruiting graduates or even hiring NTU’s state-of-the-art facilities.

In addition, students from the Centre for Broadcast and Journalism and Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies will be filming the day’s events for a special feature on Notts TV on 16 May.

A team from the university will also take part in one of the stand-out events of the day – the Young Farmers Association’s lawnmower race.

NTU students can also be found acting as stewards in the livestock and equine competitions as well as taking part themselves.
