More than 35,000 people enjoyed scorching weather and hundreds of acts, stalls and animal events at the two-day Hertfordshire County Show.

Drama came from the Devils Horsemen, Herts Farmers Fantastic Forktrucks and Jason Smyth Aerial Motorbike Stunts, as well as showjumping and the many horse and pony races.

Titan the Robot pulled in the crowds, as did the disco-dancing sheep, raptor displays and bull show. The huge range of local fine food went down well (literally), as did the many ‘greet the animals’ tents which had little’uns wide-eyed.

Show secretary Mike Harman said the 127th show organised by the Hertfordshire Agricultual Society was another absolutely fantastic weekend. ‘The feedback has been positive and complimentary from visitors and exhibitors regarding the on-going improvements to the show entertainment programme and infrastructure. We are particularly delighted that yet again our family ticket sales hit a new record, a clear signal that our unique package of attractions and demonstrations combined with an all-inclusive entertainment policy, is valued. As always, we will review all aspects of the show in the coming weeks with a view to making further improvements for next year.’
