There will be plenty on offer for all ages at the 124th Honiton Agricultural Show

The grand parade is one of the many highlights in the main ring during the event tomorrow (Thursday, August 7), at the showground at Stockers Farm, Gittisham, which is just off the old A30.

Other acts include Jason Smyth’s Adrenaline Tour. Jason, a former world championship moto-cross rider will be wowing visitors with his motorcycle stunts and bike and quad bike tricks.

The talented canines of Rockwood Dog Display Team and Bob Hogg’s Sheepdog Display will also be performing.

The lower field will feature ferret racing, a blacksmiths guild, vintage tractor displays and more.

The show also hosts the West of England Hound Show and for the first time welcomes the Sheep Show. There will be a dog show, donkey rides, a poultry show and sale, face painting, a colourful display of parrots from Birdline UK Parrot Rescue, and much more.

The show will feature more than 400 trade stands, including crafts, shopping and a food hall.
