By Staff Reporter

Translink says a host of special public transport services are in place to deal with the thousands expected to flock to this year's Balmoral Show.

The four-day show kicks off at Balmoral Park, close to Sprucefield, tomorrow.

Translink group chief executive Chris Conway says visitors "can choose from a range of convenient and good value services right across the four days of this year's Balmoral Show".

He said: "We're working closely with the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) to ensure our public transport operation runs as smoothly as ever so visitors can enjoy hassle-free bus and train travel to Ireland's largest agriculture and food event."

Colin McDonald, chief executive of RUAS, said: "Preparations for this year's Balmoral Show are well advanced and we are looking forward to welcoming thousands of visitors to Balmoral Park over the course of the four days.

"We have teamed up with Translink to provide coach day tours from a range of regional towns." For more information on getting to and from the show, you can visit
