The kids will have the chance to get hands on with reptiles and baby animals. Let them watch in wonder at the sky high stilt walkers and enjoy free face painting all day.

For the older kids and adults there will be archery lessons to try your hand at. There will be a breathtaking demonstration of horseback archery and a real live jousting tournament by The Knights of Camelot. See the traditional art of blacksmithing and falconry on show throughout the day.

And of course, no Show Day is complete without an array of rides and fairy floss and popcorn to enjoy!
