Welly-wanging, obstacle races and so much more will be on offer at a special family fun day.

Henley Young Farmers have organised the event which will take place on Sunday, May 24.

Fawley Hill Estate will be taken over for the festivities, after Sir and Lady McAlpine agreed to support the group.

More than 100 competitions will take place on the day, culminating in the ‘main event’ a grand tug ‘o’ war competition in the main ring.

A spokesman for the Henley Young Farmers said: “Alongside the competitions will be a host of activities for all the family.

“There will be birds of prey, heavy horses, a motorcycle display team, steam traction engines, vintage vehicles and tractors, children’s rides and even an inflatable assault course.

“For the adults there will be a bar serving local beers and ciders, local food stands and plenty of trade and craft stalls with a variety of produces.

“The Fawley Hill steam railway and museum will be open and is a treat not to be missed.”

Entry to the event costs £5 for adults and £3 for children aged 10 to 16.

The day kicks off at 10am.
