For Nostalgia this week, we are heading back to 1954 to remind ourselves of the Royal Show that took place in Windsor that summer.

The show was attended by thousands of people from across the county and beyond to not only get a glimpse of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, but also enjoy the summer fun at the Great Park in Berkshire.

There was lots on offer for those who visited the event.

There were food and drink stands that showcased the most creative and scrumptious treats from all over the country, whilst green fingered enthusiasts enjoyed the fantastic array of plants that too were on display.

The event also displayed the talents of craft makers, as many people submitted their own knitted and laced products at the Royal Show, which attracted large numbers during the festivities.

In between the cattle competition and the carriage contest, the arrival of the Queen led to huge cheers from the crowd as Her Majesty, who was in the second year of being leader of the United Kingdom, waved at crowd members as she too seemed to enjoy the event.
