The festival is now open every day with livestock displays, sheep-shearing, ferret-racing, a dog and duck show and many more events.

There will also be a wide range of food and drink stalls to browse and enjoy as well as a number of other performances which will be on offer throughout the day until 10.30pm.

– If you fancy a break from the busy festival life, head down to The Friends Meeting House, in High Street, for a craft fair on Saturday.

Pick up a bargain from 11am-3pm.

– Start your Sunday off with a leisurely stroll to Grove Park for a classic car show.

Chat to the owners and find out more about their beautiful cars from 10am-4.30pm.

– After you have visited Grove Park, jump in your car and head to Hutton for a delicious country barbecue.
