A festival celebrating the delights of the countryside will take place this weekend at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.
The Town and Country Festival has enlisted the help of alpacas, a motorbike stunt team, water buffalo and Oscar, the talking robot, to stage one of the biggest events of the summer.
More than 100,000 people are expected to flock to the festival, now in its 34th year, to explore traditional country crafts, animals, food, gardening, steam and vintage machinery, morris dancing, brass bands and shopping.
New features for this year include the Gardens Monthly Roadshow, featuring guest speakers and experts including Mary Payne and Peter Seabrook.
The Cookery Theatre has live demonstrations from members of the British Culinary Federation chefs.
In addition visitors will find more than 700 stalls selling everything from quilts to quad bikes, antiques to spas and computers to wellies.
Traditional rural skills from corn dolly making to dry stone walling, heavy horse turnout competitions and birds of prey displays will feature in the Countryside Showcase.
The festival is also one of Britain's biggest car shows with more than 600 classic cars on display.
Other attractions include Fred's Flying Circus and Circus School and a food hall featuring a farmers' market.
Helen Arnold, event organiser, said: "This is the ultimate family day out over the bank holiday weekend.
"There really is something for everyone, you'll be spoilt for choice."
The festival will take place from August 27-29.
