This is a day to celebrate the Armed Forces and all they had done and are doing for us. We have a bar, food vendors, a variety of stallholders and amazing arena events.

The Black Eagles – A high impact, joyful show that will have people gasping in amazement. The Black Eagles are originally from Tanzania, East Africa, where they learnt their acrobatic skills on the streets of Dar-es-Salaam. They have toured extensively in South Africa at the Brian Boswell Circus, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, before coming to the United Kingdom as the Black Eagles. Since then they have appeared all over the UK and Europe at festivals such as Womad (UK, Spain and The Canary Islands), Glastonbury Festival, Sidmouth International Festival, The Royal Albert Hall, Canary Wharf, Sunderland Football Stadium (Stadium of Light), The Queen’s Jubilee, Commonwealth Olympics in Manchester, The Slammer (BBC1), Blue Peter and many more.

Might Smith Show – Adrian Smith, 5th in the World’s Strongest Man and three times winner of UK’s Strongest Man Competition, presents a show geared for family fun with visual humour and audience participation.

Ferret World Roadshow – Ferret world presents both an informative static display of ferrets and ‘live races’ with 3 different tunnels – the adult tunnel, the kids tunnel and of course the Ferret tunnel.
Ferret Display The Ferret World ferret display is a visual feast of Ferrets suitable for all age groups. Ferret World gives a talk on the history of ferrets, where they came from and what they are used for, right up to the modern ferreter and the equipment they use. Ferret Race. Following this is a Ferret Fun Race, where members of the audience take an active part in the race by going head to head with the ferrets in special tubes their size. This part is definitely “hands on”. Throughout the day, whenever Ferret World isn’t appearing in the arena, staff are available for Q & A on all aspects of ferrets.

Wildlife Display – Bryan and his qualified team members provide interactive sessions throughout the day. With a ‘hands on’ approach with a variety of animals, including Snakes, Spiders, Scorpions, Insects, Meerkats, cute and cuddlies.
