Talented acrobats performing on horseback are among the acts in the arena line-up at Stradsett, near King's Lynn, this weekend.

The historic Stradsett Hall will be hosting the Stradsett Country and Craft Show in the grounds of the estate on Saturday and Sunday. Doors are open 10am-5pm.

The acrobatic group, called Galloping Acrobatics, are scheduled alongside motorbike stunt riders and African performers Zulu Dancers who have also appeared at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Paula Edmundson, from Classic Festivals and Events which is organising the show, said: 'The show is going to be bigger than last year.

'As well as exhibitors travelling to the show, we also have many locals joining us for the event. There will be a very local feel.

As well as the various new acts, a new feature this year is the dog show, with over 15 classes to enter. There will also be dog agility and gun dog demonstrations.

The children's area will also be much bigger with a petting zoo, talks about reptiles and spiders, and a punch and judy show.
