Animal lovers will have two dog shows to enjoy; the local sheep dog display and the dog agility competition.
Also, both teachers and pupils of Roecraft School will be on show; the children will perform a display of maypole dancing, while the teachers will host an art and craft activity.
In addition to all of this, there will be a kids zone, a vintage tractor display, archery, live music in a beer tent and, of course ferret racing!
The show is open from 10:30am to 5pm on May 6 and 7, raising money for the mill, which was gutted by fire in 1992.
Admission prices are £3 for adults and £1.50 for children and senior citizens. This includes free parking and a programme.
