Welcome to Balmoral Park
From the 15th-17th May 2013, the Balmoral Show in partnership with Ulster Bank will be held at a different venue for the first time in over 116 years. This spacious new venue, Balmoral Park, has given the Balmoral Show the ability to adapt and grow to keep up with the increasing demands placed on it every year. This move will allow the event to offer many improvements including better parking, more space, additional livestock competitions and world class attractions. The event experience at Balmoral Park will be transformed with emphasis being placed on accessibility, manoeuvrability and creating a positive experience for all.
