As well as the historic vehicle displays and food stands, families were also able to watch an impressive stunt display called 'Vander-Double Wheel of Death', which was performed on both days. 

Those that were looking for something slightly less hair-raising were able to watch 'The Sheep Show' which finished with an all-action sheep shearing display!
