Visitors to the show will be greeted by a smorgasbord of activities. Whether livestock judging's your thing or you'd rather watch a high-octane quad bike stunt show or a farrier shoeing a horse, there is a packed programme of events designed to entertain the whole family.

There will be over 700 trade stands with everything from arts and crafts to the latest hi-tech farm machinery.

For peckish patrons, there will be 40 catering stands and around 90 local producers promoting the best of Northern Ireland food and drink.
