Gorefield’s 57th annual show promises to be as ‘fun-packed and full as ever’ - here’s everything you need to know
As Gorefield prepares for its 57th annual show, here’s everything you need to know about the village’s summer event.
Organisers say this year's event, held on Saturday June 8, will be "fun-packed and as full as ever" with activities ranging from dog shows to a 'children vs tractor' tug of war.
A spokesman said: "From the light horse and pony show to the attractions of the main ring, you will be sure to find something to keep your whole family entertained.
"This year the Gorefield Show is excited to announce the booking of the main ring attraction the Dog and Duck Show!"
The Dog and Duck Show will see expert Stuart Barnes take trained and untrained sheep dogs into the ring to herd up ducks.
The spokesman added: "It will amuse and educate the audience about common dog behaviour issues and about how these can be resolved.
"The show demonstrates how untrained and poorly behaved dogs still have a programmed natural instinct, giving the audience a new understanding of the way of the dog."
The main ring schedule and attractions list will be confirmed and listed online with times as soon as possible.
Also on offer will be:
- Judging of Heavy Horse Classes
- Tug of War - MAN VS MACHINE (Children vs Tractor) - NEW this year!

"For hot food there is a BBQ and for the adults a bar serving real ales, cider and cold beverages all day!
