Bursting with country pursuits, entertainment highlights include the female equestrian display team Jive Pony, the Nick Houghton Aerobatics Flying display, livestock competitions and a performance from the Mid Norfolk Gun Dogs.

Show chairman Ian Whettingsteel said: “The sun was out last year which meant record visitors and we hope this year will be just as successful so that we can continue to support local charities and good causes. Guests of all ages will enjoy highlights of Norfolk’s agricultural and rural traditions and with even more attractions this year’s show is set to be the best yet.”

Award-winning chef Jon Gay will use his culinary skills to wow visitors in the Lifestyle Marquee while the Taste of Norfolk Marquee will showcase producers of local food including pork pies and sausages.

The equestrian events are bigger than ever before with more competitions in the dedicated equestrian rings. Horse-lovers will see everything from Shetlands to Shire horses while the Banham Zoo heavy horses will be on display in the main ring.

There will also be a chance to see cattle, sheep, pigs, fur and feather livestock competitions, sheepdog trials, beagles, vintage vehicles and arts and crafts marquees.

Young agricultural enthusiasts can enter the Wayland Show’s Young Achiever of the Year Award, which showcases their outstanding dedication to agriculture, horticulture or any other rural sector.

Ticket prices are: adults (17+) £12 or £10 online; children (5-16) £5 or £4 online; under fives free. Car parking is free.

The show takes place at Brandon Road, 
Watton.
