Motorcycle display teams and husky racing will be some of the new attractions this year at Breckland Family Show on Watton airfield on Monday, May 2.

The show is organised by the Rotary Club, and as it celebrates its centenary year, an extra effort is being made to make the day special.

The show will be opened by Rob and Chrissie from Broadland 102, who will arrive in the station's new Black Thunder Helicopter.

The big new attraction will be the Bolddog Lings Freestyle Team, a motorcycle display team. Weather permitting, there also be a mountain stunt bike display, dog agility, free rides on Ben Burford's Land Train and East Coast Truckers, who will let visitors Drive a Juggernaut.
