Organised by the East of England Agricultural Society, visitors to the show can expect to see thousands of animals of all shapes and sizes, from small livestock exhibits including mice and fancy rats to special displays of rare and endangered livestock breeds. Returning for it’s fourth year, the East of England Giant Vegetable Competition will show the fruits of a season of hard work by the region’s vegetable growers.

Magnificent Shire horses, incorporated as part of the Wisbech Shire Horse Show, will be dressed in their traditional glory. There will also be the chance to see Pony Club show jumping competitions, donkey driving and harness goats.
For those who prefer their animals with a bark, there will be plenty of dog displays and classes including ‘Scruffts’ (the Kennel Club’s search for the crossbreed of the year), the final of the Burgess Supa Dog Agility Stakes, and Terrier and Lurcher championships.
