One of the biggest events of Great Harwood’s social calendar will come to the town on Monday, May 30.
The Great Harwood Agricultural Show will feature a range of fun events for all the family and everyone is urged to come along and support it.
This year’s show will feature competitive classes for cattle and sheep, pygmy goats, horses, dogs and sheepdog trial as well as a farriers shoeing competition.
For the third year, the ever-popular show is on the junction of Harwood Lane and Whalley Road, known as the New Showground.
It has been the home of the show since 2009 when the society bought it – and it is nearly five times bigger than the old location in Wood Lane.
The historic show, which dates back to 1857, has always been hugely popular – with visitors from miles around and thousands attending.
Show chairman Geoffrey Hanson said: "For the past two years we have had a great time with the weather, with two of the best turnouts we have had.
"We saw our turnover double with more than 10,000 people coming along on our new 44-acre site, which was beyond our greatest expectations.
"The grand prize for this is two tickets for a day out at Camelot, so it’s an excellent idea to encourage families to come along."
There will also be children’s competitions – including decorating plant pots and flower-planting – as well as egg-catching and a tug of war competition for the adults, with a chance to win the coveted King of Spades Perpetual Shield.
The main arena will feature items including pony club games, Arabian dancers, displays from the Lancashire Police dogs and Blazing Saddles stunt riding team and a birds of prey display.
The show will run from 9am until around 5pm.
Admission is £5 for adults, £3 for pensioners and children aged four to 14, and free for children under four.
