Cornwall is going to Wadebridge.

Thursday is day one of the Royal Cornwall Show and the sun is set to shine.

It will banish memories of last year when gales tore down tents.

The Princess Royal is among thousands heading to the three day event.

It will be her fourth visit. Show secretary Chris Riddle is looking forward to welcoming her: "We've had a royal visit every year now for several years. Who knows, that may not continue - but it's great.

"I think members of the Royal family like coming. They love Cornwall as  a county. They feel very happy and relaxed and I think she'll be made very welcome."

There are a thousand trade exhibitors and many more entries in the annual livestock shows.

But Cornwall Council is among those that have decided not to attend this year, as it battles to save money. Chris Riddle said: "The show is looking packed as always. Yes, financially, times are hard for some people but I think they look on the show as their holiday. It's a chance for Cornwall to let its hair down."

Pirate FM has been shown a scam letter being sent to some exhibitors, asking them to sign up to a business directory.

In the small print is a fee of over a thousand pounds and a link to Mexico.

Exhibitor John Townsend says most have ignored it: "It would be second nature to read anything that even starts to smell like a contract. But it is quite a simple 'Return this form for correct entry' so if you don't read it properly or if you're new in business it's quite easy that it could slip through.

"We have seen it at other events. The fact that the Royal Cornwall Show is getting the information out to exhibitors - that's invaluable."

Pirate FM is at the Royal Cornwall Show on stand 640 for all three days. You can get the latest travel information on-air and online by clicking here.
