Handsome horses, first-class cattle and sharp sheepdogs are just some of the top attractions at this year’s Hope Show in Derbyshire.

The annual agricultural event, which dates back to 1853, will take place at The Showground in Castleton on Bank Holiday Monday, August 25.

Highlights are set to include a wide range of displays and competitions, including sheepdog trials and showjumping, plus poultry, cattle and sheep classes.

There will also be vintage vehicle displays, horticulture events, arts and crafts, live entertainment and an array of children’s activities.

Tickets cost £9 for adults, £6 concessions and £3 for children. Those under five enter free. For more information, visit
