One of the oldest agricultural shows in the country will be taking place next week.

With nearly 200 years of history, Bakewell Show has evolved from a purely agricultural display to the diverse event it is today with something for everybody.

Always held on the first Wednesday and Thursday in the month of August, the 184th show will take place on August 6 and 7 this year with the dedicated Equestrian day on Tuesday (August 5).

The Centre Ring attraction this year will be the James Dylan Motorcycle Stunt Display Team, headed by dazzling adventurer James Dylan.

This year is a celebration year for Food and Farming as the section marks its 25th anniversary and by coincidence the 2014 President is Mary Morten, who has played a large part in establishing the link between food and farming at the show.
