A country show at Great Gransden is expected to attract thousands of visitors on its return next month.
The long-running show had to be cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown restrictions, but organisers are all set for 2021.
The Gransden Show, which is celebrating its 118th year, will provide a day of entertainment for the whole of the family at the show field in Caxton Road, on September 25.
The show dates back to Victorian times when similar events were set up across the country to highlight the many new agricultural methods and also countryside pursuits.
The event is organised by Gransden and District Agricultural Society which has held on to its decades-old traditions.
