THE ATTRACTIONS

The show is centred around two rings. The Main Ring which hosts the Horse and Pony Show in the morning, followed by main attractions in the afternoon, which have included interactive demonstrations of dog agility, birds of prey, duck herding, sheep shearing, racing terriers, racing sheep, cycle stunt displays, dancers, martial arts, Roman military re-enactments and classic car displays, amongst many others. It has also entertained the crowds with tug of war competitions, children’s races, tripe, jelly and banana eating competitions and it’s Bush Tucker Challenge. The second ring is the Dog Ring which holds the Fun Dog competitions. Over the years the showground has also been home to many outdoor stalls, puppet shows, pony rides, fire service displays, archery, martial arts displays, agricultural displays, animal displays, a food court and the Brass band music and a live music stage– not forgetting the symbol of show weekend – the marquee which is home to craft stalls, plus various rabbit, pigeon, flower, vegetable, handicraft and domestic exhibitors; all competing for Best in Show awards.
