Donkeys – an essential part of the event

Arena events in 2012 included Bernie Bennett’s Comedy Tightrope act (new for 2012), and an Eagle and Falconry display where some of the most awe-inspiring birds in the world swooped just above our heads.

And returning by popular demand were those limbo-dancing, funny contortionists – the Fanti acrobats.

Get Cycling were present with their newest attraction, eXtreme Try-Out – and even bigger range of bikes to try than last year.

We selected a fantastic mix of stalls, selling among other things jewellery and clothes, both contemporary and vintage,crafts, books, plants, furniture and more.
