Preparations are underway for this year’s Swallowfield show, which takes place this weekend.

The annual event runs on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday at its traditional base in White House Farm in Swallowfield.

This year, the horse show has been moved to Saturday, leaving the rest of the holiday weekend for entertainment. Fun includes pig racing, a falconry display, classic cars, a samba band and a display by lumberjack crew Adam’s Axemen.

There will also be a celebration of produce, with locally grown flowers, fruits and vegetables on display.

“It looks to be an awful lot of fun,” says organiser Val Payne.

“We’ve been running this show for 132 years and it’s a traditional show. We’ve still got Punch and Judy, as well as many other modern acts. It should be really good. We’re hoping for some great weather to inspire people to come and join us over the three days.”

Entry costs £8 for adults, £6 for senior citizens and £1 for children. Gates open at 10am on both days.
