This year's Cotswold Show on 6-7 July at Cirencester Park marks the 25th anniversary of this fabulous family day out.
To celebrate, the show site has been extended, over 50 attractions have been booked and there will be over 200 trade stands for a shopping extravaganza.
Headlining attractions in the main arena include The Imps Motorcycle Display Team, Scurry and Trials Driving, the Silver Stars Skydiving team and Cheshire Dog Display.
Man's best friend will be catered for royally this year with scurries and hurries, a family dog show and the prestigious Queen Anne Cup. So dogs, as ever, will get in for free!
Food and drink will also be in abundance - not only in the cookery theatre with Rob Rees, The Cotswold Chef, but also courtesy of the BASC's Taste of Game roadshow which will be showcasing the delights of cooking and eating local game.
The National Festival Circus will be making its debut in its own Big Top and children will love the fabulous funfair with traditional rides and candy floss!
Animals will be a big part of the show - there are rare breed displays, a falconry village, sheep shearing and the popular Horse Whisperer.
Such is the popularity of the Show that tour operators are now including The Cotswold Show on their lists of day trips with coaches coming in from Wales just for the day.
Lord Bathurst says: "We're very excited about this year's Show - we've got more to see and do than ever before and we're looking forward to welcoming our visitors to Cirencester Park."
Early bird tickets, with big discounts on the gate price, are now on sale via the Show's website.
