Gallery: Hadleigh Show brings out the crowds

HADLEIGH: Perfect show weather brought out the crowds to the town’s annual agricultural show at the weekend.

With a wide range of attractions for everyone, from traditional livestock and showjumping competitions to a funfair and a range of events in ring one, the organisers put on something for everyone.

Among the highlights this year were a motorcycle stunt show in the main ring and displays of vintage farm machinery.

Birds of prey demonstrations delighted the crowds – and among the animals that kept their feet firmly on the ground there was a chance to meet the Stour Valley Beagles and the East Anglia Bloodhounds.

The event is one of a series of agricultural events that build up the show season towards the Suffolk Show at the start of next month.

This was the show’s 171st year – and while tradition is still important it certainly moves with the times as youngsters in jeans and T-shirts mingled with stewards and judges in their traditional bowler hats.
