Throughout the Show, UTV will feature nightly updates with all the news and events, starting from Wednesday 14 May and running until Friday 16 May.

Meanwhile there will be a special half-hour review programme, UTV at the Show, to cover the highlights from across the week, on Sunday 18 May at 6.45pm

Mark McFadden and Aideen Kennedy will give viewers a guided tour of Ireland's largest agricultural and food show, which showcases Northern Ireland's vitally important agri-food sector across the 65 acre Balmoral Park at the Maze site.

At the Show, the top cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry from across Northern Ireland all compete for awards which are renowned for boosting a farm's reputation and business profile.

UTV at the Show will feature this year's inaugural Six Nations Sheep Shearing Competition as well as popular equestrian showcases such as the Pony Club Games, Riding for the Disabled and the International Grand Prix finale which offers the overall winner a grand prize of £21,000.

Paul Clarke, Head of Local Programming at UTV said: "UTV is delighted to return to the Balmoral Show where Mark and Aideen will capture the colour and diversity on display before catching up with some of the folk from UTV's hugely popular Rare Breed farming series.

"They will also reflect on the business of farming and feature the daily displays and competitions that are an important part of the show."

Balmoral Show updates air on UTV every day at 6.25pm and UTV at the Show will be shown on Sunday at 6.45pm.
