There will also be a traditional tossing the sheaf contest, which is open to visitors to have a go. Besides the ploughing there will be birds of prey flying displays, hounds and terrier racing, a tug-of-war and gun dog demonstrations, as well as a gymkhana with classes for children up to 14 to try show jumping and showing classes, and fancy dress and novelty classes for younger riders and beginners.

There will also be a fun dog show, a dog agility competition and clay shooting with six classes.

Plus visitors can tuck into plenty of food and drink and browse a farmers' market with local produce.
