MAIN RING ATTRACTIONS
Our main ring show cases some great entertainment for all the family to include displays, entertainment and competitions. 2023 sees the return of the Bolddogs FMX display team to the main ring. We also have parades to include livestock, modern & vintage machinery and classic cars.
We always have a wide range of exhibitors. Each year we have a few of the following attend the show. From ferrets, hunt displays, bird of prey, sheep dog displays, sheep shearing, farrier and a mini zoo.
Over 130 trade stands across the show, from arts and crafts, jewellery, homewares, through to artisan breads and pies in our indoor trade marquee and clothing stalls, garden furniture, plants and local club stands and not forgetting agricultural machinery and tractor stands outside.
From around the country, cattle & sheep exhibitors prepare and show their prizewinning livestock to the public and judges attracting around 100 head of cattle and over 250 head of sheep over 25 breeds.
With classes for all abilities the equine area is bustling with activity for all horse enthusiasts. Heavy Horses and Horse and carriages will be putting on a fantastic display both in the main ring and equine rings.
MODERN & VINTAGE MACHINERY
A fantastic display of modern and vintage machinery on display.
With over 600 entries the homecraft marquee displays the local talent from a schedule of over 80 classes including specific classes for men in the bakery section and classes for under 18's, with prize money at stake and cups. It always proves to be a spectacular display.
The Our popular gun dog scurry is back once again. A scurry is a timed competition aimed at finding the dog that retrieves a dummy in the fastest time. Scurries are a fun 'have a go event and anyone can enter. New this year we also have a simulated laser clay pigeon shooting competition. We also have air rifle shooting and ferrets.

THE VILLAGE GREEN
With many various catering outlets, a public bar and live music take time to sit back and relax within our Village Green. Situated next to the children's entertainment even the children will enjoy it here. We also have the addition of face painting and craft activities for the children this year.
Bouncy castles, go karts, traditional fair stalls and last man standing to name a few, there should be something to keep all ages entertained.
This year we are also running a Children's competition to win a fantastic bundle of prizes. Further details and entry can be found in the Show Guide.
A designated area for education for all the family from milking cows, learning about seeds and plants and the wildlife needed for the plants to survive and thrive. The sheep shearer returns to show you how to get the wool off the sheep, which then goes to the spinners who turn the wool into yarn and dyeing in spectacular colours which then go on to make fantastic garments. The Rare Breeds Survival Trust will be bringing an array of animals to view and talk about.
A wonderful display of Classic Cars.
