The event will take place on September 15 and 15 at Henham Park, near Southwold, with unusual animal attractions alongside the steam exhbits.

Stuart Barnes and his Dog and Duck Show will use highly-trained sheepdogs to herd ducks in the Len Murray Arena. They have travelled all over the world working with wildlife and will give the audience insights into dog behaviour issues.

Also set to appear is Nigel Oakley from Rede Hall near Bury St Edmunds, who helps to keep alive the tradition of real horse power. He and his team will display both Shires and Suffolk Punch horses, along with a range of horse-drawn vehicles.
