THERE really is something for everyone at today’s Honiton Show - from spectacular entertainment in the Underdown Ring to livestock competitions for farmers.

This morning, crowds were treated to an eye-catching display of vintage tractors and a host of other spectacles.

The Gittisham Hill Parade Jazz Band got the day off to a bright start.

Victor Pitt’s Sheepdog, Sheep and Duck Display followed, along with private horse driving, a parade of hounds and an awe-inspiring display by motorcycle team Bolddog Lings, supported by the Midweek Herald.

Heavy horses were in the Underdown Ring ahead of another performance from the jazz band and before the grand parade of livestock, which is currently taking place.

Visitors were slow to come through the gates early on, but the showground was heaving by 10am.

A free bus service from Honiton was proving popular with locals.

Honiton Band entertained crowds during the morning, followed by Ottery St Mary Silver Band.

After 4.30pm, MST is inviting show-goers to help themselves to a tractor full of coloured balls.

Your Midweek Herald is at the show all day.
