A FUN-packed Herefordshire show is back for a third year, promising to keep old traditions alive.

The Golden Valley Vintage and Country Fair goes from strength to strength after receiving support from both locals and those now travelling from further afield to enjoy this entertaining day of activities, exhibits and displays.

With so much going on, organiser Denis Gwatkin has talked brother Eric into giving over more of the family farm's fields to camping and exhibits at Gwatkin Cider in Abbey Dore for the June 8 event.

Mr Gwatkin said “we are keen to keep old traditions alive and bring the local community together with this ever-growing old-fashioned family day out”.

With an ever-increasing number of exhibits, the classic vehicle show has an interesting display of engines, tractors, motorbikes and classic vehicles. The John Fowler general-purpose engine will be on display again and in action for the first time.

The Welsh Axemen have a compelling display of timber sports, one not to be missed!

All the usual favourites are returning including clay shooting, Hay on Wye tug of war, Archery, a range of country pursuits, many more craft and trade stands, a range of country pursuits, and Melissa Hollick is back performing live vintage classics to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

HOYS Champions for the last two years, the North Herefordshire Pony Club host a hot competition in anticipation of the 2024 qualifiers. The six teams that will battle it out on June 8 will all be hopeful that this year could be theirs. Supported by Junior and Mini counterparts there will be a warm-up competition for each in the morning, and a grand final in the afternoon.

Fired Up and The BBC Acoustic Band will be shaking the sheep shed with live music from 7pm until late.

Tickets are available now. Find out more about this fun day out or book at www.vintageandcountryfair.co.uk
