An historic produce show is going back to its roots by hosting a special World War One-themed event. The Draycott in the Clay Agricultural and Horticultural Show will commemorate 100 years since The Great War.
On Sunday, September 3, organisers will welcome the Welsh Yeomanry to the main ring to perform their own version of the classic tale of War Horse - Cadfarch.
Horses will be taken from their farms and trained up for battle before leading an epic charge against enemy forces.
In between demonstrations the horses and the Yeomanry will be in their mock farm yard where members of the public can meet them and ask questions.
Show secretary Ken Ashton said: "This is one of the most ambitious shows we’ve ever attempted.
"We hope our efforts can help the public understand the sacrifice made by so many men, women and animals all those years ago."
Keeping with the theme of The Great War, Pop Up Poppies will be in one of the trader’s stalls inviting members of the public to take part in an epic craft project.
They have set themselves the goal of knitting and crocheting 7,000 poppies this year, reflecting the number of men killed in the war from the area.
Project leader Vivienne Toon said: "I've also knitted purple poppies to commemorate the animals lost from 1914 to 1918."
Patterns and wool will be available for anyone who wants to take part. All proceeds will go to The Royal British Legion. Schoolchildren from five surrounding villages have also been helping to keep the theme running by submitting their own artwork on the theme of War Horse
Paintings and drawings of the war, soldiers, farms and farm animals will grace the walls of the horticultural tent.
Artist Harry Elden will judge the work with winning children and the winning school all receiving prize money.
The rest of the show will see the Dog and Duck Man demonstrate his charming herding skills. Shire horses will be holding their annual competition - the largest in the area. Steam engines, vintage cars, tractors and motorbikes will be available to view.
Members of the public are invited to bring their dogs to participate in the fun dog show or they can enter into one of many agricultural and horticultural competitions.
In between the festivities, food will be on offer alongside beer brewed by Draycott's very own Roebuck Brewing Company and a pop-up gin and tonic stand.
Gates open at 11am and show starts at noon. The show takes place at land on Grange Farm, in New Row.
Entry prices are £6 for adults and children under 16 are free with an accompanying adult.
