Rockingham Castle was the setting for an annual country fair last weekend.

The annual Rockingham Country Show and Oakleigh Fairs often attracts thousands of people and took place on Saturday, September 22, and Sunday, September 23.

A spokesman for organisers, Oakleigh, said: “We are delighted to be at Rockingham at this, one of our very favourite family country shows.”

The event included all-day family entertainment such as The Horkesley Park Heavy Horse Display Team, Totally Terriers racing team, Polly’s Parrots, The Goat Show featuring milking and cheese making, the 44th Regiment of Foot, The Nuneaton Dog Display Team and working dogs with John Cavana.

There was also a companion dog show with proceeds going to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Visitors could also look around a variety of arts, crafts and gift marquees.

Our photographer Dave Ikin went along to last weekend’s event.
