Open from 8am to 6pm every day, the Show is a wonderful day out with plenty of displays, entertainment and local food. With over 400 exhibitors and trade stands and over 300 competitions, activities and displays.
The Agricultural area of the Show boasts large displays of cattle, sheep and goats as well as a large Poultry and Egg show.
