A more exotic breed of animal is set to join the cows, pigs and sheep at next summer's Kent County Show.
The four camels, along with their expert jockeys, will be the main ring attraction for the show.
It is the first time camels have been at the show, organised by the Kent County Agricultural Society, since 2013.
The four, who have been performing since 2000, will race around the show's main ring, aiming to be the first across the line.
Show manager, Lucy Hegarty, said: “We are always looking for something exciting to bring to the show.
"Where we’ve had the Household Cavalry bringing a sense of tradition and the International Dzhigitovka Show bringing a touch of daring at previous shows, Joseph’s Amazing Racing Camels will provide some entertaining and humorous performances for visitors to the 2020 Kent County Show.”
The camels join a host of entertainment at the event, which attracts thousands every summer, including the Herigeus Hundus saxon re-enactment group, the Sheep Show and there will be Punch and Judy.
There will also be the annual livestock and equine competitions, flower shows, vintage vehicles, food hall and retail stands at the three-day agricultural showcase, celebrating food, farming and rural life.
You can get tickets for the show at a 30% discount until Tuesday, December 31. Book at kentshowground.co.uk
