The weekend is packed full of arena displays, falconry, sheep dogs and ferret racing and the infamous dancing sheep show. There's also a range of traditional countryside activities to come and try including willow weaving, corn dolly making and wood turning or if you just want to watch, you can marvel at the blacksmith demonstrating his trade while enjoying a locally made cake!

There are animals galore too! From the more traditional farm animals of sheep, goats, ponies and calves, we've also got some smaller animals for you to have a hold of including rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises.
