This ever-popular Holbeach Town and Country Fayre is back next weekend.

The annual event takes place on Saturday and Sunday, June 18 and 19.

There are many stalls and also displays of vintage tractors and associated farming equipment, classic cars, military vehicles, motorcycles and steam engines .

Plus, there are arena events such as the now world famous Cabbage Hurling competition.

The championships see teams compete for a silver challenge cup and a £150 first prize.

Cabbage hurling was devised by local inventor John Ward, who says: “It’s not a bad prize for messing about for a few minutes.”

There is also live evening entertainment with the return of the ever-popular Tony G entertaining in the main marquee on the Saturday evening.

Rocky, the owl who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, will also be there and there are also many dog show classes.

There’s a beer tent and lots of children’s entertainment too.

Show chairman Andrew French said the committee has worked hard to make sure this year’s fayre is filled with fun for all of the family,

The event runs from 10am to 5pm both days at Kings Field, Ravens Gate, Fen Road, Holbeach.

Adults £5, concessions £3 and kids under 16 free.
