The Honiton & District Agricultural Association holds its 129th show on Thursday, August 1.

The Main Ring will be buzzing with the fantastic Jamie Squibb and his Freestyle Motocross Arena Stunt Show and the Devil’s Horsemen, Europe’s number one stunt and trick riding team will be showing their skills.

Viperaerobatics will have everyone looking to the skies whilst they perform two phenomenal flying displays in an iconic Pitts S2B Biplane.

Meanwhile Bob Hogg and his sheepdog display will demonstrate his unique training methods in an educational act.

The lower field is home to all things countryside with hurdle making, thatching and cob block demonstrations, ferret racing, a blacksmiths guild, 100 vintage tractors and the West of England Hound Show.

There will also be a dog show, comprising both pedigree and fun classes for the pet pooch while chicken fanciers will enjoy the poultry show and sale.

The Blackdown Hills Business Association Marquee is to showcase businesses within the Blackdown Hills and surrounding market towns and villages.

Entertainment is in abundance for children with Professor Twistopher’s Punch and Judy, and donkey rides and perhaps the younger members of the family will meet the show’s animated friends Captain Beaky and Murray the Mini Monster whilst they cycle around the showground.

There are vintage and classic cars and the show is proud to host the Crash Box & Classic Car Club.

The show’s first foray into baking was a hit last year, so it’s running again this year.

In all there will be more than 400 trade stands to shop and be of interest to all.

Advance tickets are £14.50 for the day.
