There will also be a children’s pet show featuring giant tortoises, ferrets, and birds of prey.

Four-legged friends have their chance to shine in a fun dog show, with prizes for best rescue, waggiest tale and fancy dress.

Twenty five competition classes will also be open to visitors, ranging from colouring competition for youngsters, to a jar of chutney for adults.

There will also be steam traction engines, vintage tractors and bicyles on display.
