Easton and Otley College had a food and farming theme among its exhibits, with visitors having the chance to make their own burgers and hot dogs.

The college's largest marquee, situated in the Discovery Zone, was packed with activities including I'm A Celebrity-inspired bushtucker trials.

Other activities included construction demonstrations and a garden design – including mini gold – from the horticultural department.

Farming students from the college took part in livestock competitions, winning a clutch of rosettes when showing Red Poll cattle, Norfolk Horn sheep and butchers lambs.

Meanwhile the floristry department received a silver gilt medal for their living table design, inspired by a visit to Chelsea Flower Show over a decade ago.

College spokesperson John Nice said: 'As a college it is hugely important for us to attend this iconic county show. It helps us promote our varied range of courses and gives our students an opportunity of gaining skills that will help them in their future careers.'
