The annual celebration of rural pursuits will have a host of the region's past times on show with classic cars and motorbikes, traction and stationary engines, crafts and animals.

Hosted on June 9 at Euston Park, Suffolk, there will be a number of activities in and outside of the ring celebrating all aspects of country life.

How farmers and landowners have worked with dogs will be displayed with hound meet and greats, gun dog scurries and sheep dog shows.

The event started in 1990 when Honington Church was in need of repairs.

The early shows were based around a large show ring where spectators were entertained by parades of farm vehicles and animals.

Now in its 27th year, the event has raised more than £523,000 for its selected charities.
