Royal Three Counties Show 2018

The Three Counties Agricultural Society is pleased to announce the return of the Royal Three Counties Show badge for 2018 following the increased interest that it has picked up for the past two years. This year’s show is set to take place on the 15-17th June 2018 at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern. Participation in the badge is free and available to Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and also the Girl Guiding community. Participation in the free badge includes pre-booked free admission to the show, with a discounted ticket available to parents/guardians. 

The aim of this occasional badge (which can be worn on uniforms for up to 12 months from the show) is to celebrate and learn what the countryside has to offer to people of all ages and backgrounds. To this end, the badge can be gained by:

  • Attending the Royal Three Counties Show one day between Friday 15th June and Sunday 17th June 2018. Admission is free providing you pre-book by the deadline (the application form is available to download below).
  • Completing the tasks set out on the badge criteria at the show (a copy of this will be available to download below soon).

The occasional badges will be available for Leaders pre-booked to pick up at the show from the showground office and should be presented to young people at a normal section meeting after the event.

Typically we expect Colonies, Packs and Troops to attend as a unit; with one overall Leader and one more Leader per 6 Beavers, 8 Cubs or 12 Scouts (as per POR). These Leaders (including Young Leaders) in uniform will be offered free pre-booked tickets to the show. In addition, one parent per child will be offered a discounted pre-booked ticket at £15.00 to enter the show. The showground offers free parking to all that attend (with special parking for mini-bus and similar transport). All tickets applications should be submitted by the Beaver/Cub/Scout Leader and sent in one transaction to Tessa Warby at or alternatively sent by post to Three Counties Showground, Malvern, Worcestershire, WR13 6NW. Applications must be received by 4th June 2018 for the 2018 show and you will need to provide a mobile contact number for emergencies during your attendance. For more information please contact Tessa Warby at:

The Three Counties Showground in Malvern (postcode WR13 6NW) is a large, safe site and well sign posted from motorways and main roads in the area. However the roads are likely to be busy on show days - so please allow plenty of time to get the showground. The showground includes a lost children and items stand (in case of problems) and has plenty of toilet and refreshment facilities. When you pre-book your tickets you'll also be provided with details of a meeting point.

We hope that you'll consider taking your Beaver Colony, Cub Pack or Scout Troop to this unique event and get your young people to gain this Occasional Badge!
