Free to attend, it is designed to promote visits to the county's top attractions and the perfect getaway spots from family adventures to relaxing beach holidays.

Running from 9.30am to 3.30pm, there will also be a children's zone, birds of prey display and an appearance by last year's Britain's Got Talent finalists, 4MG.

Organiser Liz Hare said, “My aim is to deliver a show where visitors can find out about all the best holiday ideas, attractions to visit and staycation opportunities all under one roof.

“This year the staycation trend is evident due to the impact of Brexit which has accelerated the demand for domestic holidays with more than two-thirds of people opting to holiday at home due to Brexit uncertainties and 65% of holidaymakers worried that any falls in the value of the pound will drive up prices overseas."

Exhibitors will include Fred. Olsen Cruise Line, Rovos Rail, Shongololo Express, Emerald Waterways, Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours and Signature Safari as well as coach companies and attractions.
