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.
