Sheep dog demonstrations and stunt shows are drawing the crowds to the Royal Lancashire Show.

The agricultural show has made a comeback after a rocky few years and is being held at Salesbury Hall, Ribchester, near Preston.

Yesterday it started welcoming visitors to what it hopes will be a whole new lease of life for the event, which was once a fixture on the Lancashire calendar.

The historic show, organised by the Royal Lancashire Agricultural Society, started with a ladies’ day yesterday.

It will continue throughout the weekend with a host of attractions, including a quad and motorcycle stunt show, shire horse competition and show jumping.

The countryside and livestock village is hosting sheep dog demonstrations, ferret racing, gundog demonstrations, flyball and dog agility and the Lancashire Young Farmers tug-o-war.

Historic military vehicles are also on show and there a trade stands.

Adult admission to the show is £10 on the door.
