The Stradsett Country Show will see everything from sheep racing and duck herding to craftmakers, local chefs and live music filling the stunning grounds this weekend.

The show promises a fabulous array of main ring attractions like the extraordinary Sheep Show, Falconry displays, Shire Horses, Sheep Racing, Dog and Duck Herding and much more.

There will also be a dog area with dog rings, shows and ability sessions run by Norfolk club “Agility Ability” and charity, Sharmans Legacy, who will bring the unique Honiahaka Northern Inuit Dogs to the show.

Rural crafters will be showcasing their talents as woodturners, stickmakers, furniture-makers, blacksmiths and many more.

Visitors can also come along and watch one of many cookery demonstrations by local chefs or listen to one of the eight bands playing daily.

Gemma’s petting zoo will keep the younger visitors entertained as they handle the many animals, or head over to see Amazing Reptiles if you fancy seeing something scalier like a snakes, bearded dragons or tortoises.

There will be opportunities to try one of the circus workshops, or have a laugh at Cosmo the Clown and his friends from the Foolhardy Circus.

For those looking to pick up a treat, head straight for the food producers and find out where their stock comes from, head to the crafts section or pop in the lifestyle marquee where there will be a vintage shopping section.

Music will be provided by the County’s most up-and-coming talent, with young artists from the schools set to perform and a collection of young entrepreneurs showing, as well as art and photography competitions.
