shows from Bradwell’s Storybag Theatre Company,

or listen to the soothing sounds of Jed Hone’s jazz band and the Bakewell Silver Band, who will play at intervals throughout the day.

NEW! We are delighted to announce a new farmers’ market area on the Village Green. Visitors can visit local producers to products to take home from eggs to vegetables, breads, cakes and plenty more.


One of the most popular areas of the show, the Food and Farming Marquee, gives a platform to
specialist food producers from all over the area. There are competitions for cheese and meat products and a range of traders selling everything from pies to pickles.

Nearby is The Sheep Show! Learn about different breed attributes and how a sheep’s wool becomes a jumper, plus a shearing demonstration. You can also watch the Murmuring Wheel wool spinners at work and meet some friendly Alpacas.

Visitors can also enjoy scurry driving, the horticulture show, fisherman’s walk, dog show, vintage farm machinery and classic cars, a floral art show and more.
