More than 3,000 people attended the annual Ashwell Show at the weekend, with camel racing proving to be the event’s main attraction.
As temperatures soared over the bank holiday weekend, show organisers ensured there were free water stations, along with cool-down showers available for the many canine visitors who came to try their luck in the dog show or just take in the day's entertainment.
Attractions included the horse show, Red Arrows simulator, craft demonstrations and classic cars and tractors.
The main event for many was the introduction of camel racing which drew in the crowds.
Around 3,500 people both young and old enjoyed watching the camels.
