Four legs, furry legs, feathered legs… come and see cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and poultry in this delightful agricultural show for rare and traditional breeds.

With prizes at stake and classes for young handlers, it is one of the biggest shows of its kind in the South East and hugely popular with visitors and exhibitors alike.

Crafts, demonstrations, food & drink

Enjoy a range of delicious produce from vendors and quench your thirst with a drink from the bar in the Events Field. Try tasty homemade light lunches and snacks from the Museum café marquee in the Events Field or its kiosk behind the Market Square.

Also enjoy craft and trade stands, plus demonstrations with a countryside theme.

Don’t miss The Sheep Show shuffle – Yes dancing sheep!

Watch the award-winning demonstration, The Sheep Show! A fun and educational live show of sheep breeds and shearing. “It’s a bit like Miss World in sheep”, says New Zealander Richard Savoy who owns and operates the show from their farm in Norfolk.
