The show will be held on Sunday, May 31, at Wimpole Home Farm near Royston, with the gates opening at 10am and a busy day of outdoor events continuing until 5pm.

The show, now in its 16th year, has evolved from a traditional annual Young Farmers Rally to become one of the most successful one day agricultural events in the county.

It’s organised by a small volunteer committee including past and present members of the Cambridgeshire Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs whose aim is to create a traditional country event which promotes British food and farming, provides visitors with an insight into countryside crafts and creates an arena for Young Farmers to demonstrate their skills in a variety of competitions and activities.

Throughout the day, there are main ring displays including the return of the Welsh Axemen.

There are livestock competitions including rare breeds categories, a wide variety of trade stands and a craft marquee as well as a food hall showcasing local produce.

Parking is free, admission for adults is £9 with senior citizens and children paying £5.
