Ferrets, falcons and farming at this year’s Pymoor country show

ONE of the largest one-day agricultural events in Cambridgeshire - The Pymoor Show - takes place next month, representing everything agricultural and countryside.

Thousands of visitors are expected to flock to the show on Saturday July 7; to enjoy a great family day out, with hours of entertainment, from great main arena events and displays, to vintage vehicles to live music.

This year’s show will welcome the Ferretworld Roadshow, with Simon Bishop, also known as “The Black Countryman” giving a fun talk on the History of Ferrets. Children will have the chance to be part of the action, racing the ferrets and learning all about them.

Also on the bill is Ye Olde Redtail Falconry Display. As well as being used by many leading companies and stately homes for corporate and hospitality events, the team have also appeared at prestigious shows including The Royal Welsh, The Royal Windsor, The Royal Cornwall and The Kent County Show. The birds have appeared in films such as Robin Hood Prince of Thieves and are often featured in local and national press.

Cooking up some treats at the show will be Rev John Eley, The Cooking Canon. John came to prominence when he appeared on BBC TV’s Pebble Mill at One programme, and he is a speaker in great demand.

Among the animals at the show will be the Essex Dog Display team, generally regarded as the premier dog display team in Great Britain and Europe.

They are the only civilian dog team ever to be selected for The Royal Tournament.
