This year sees the 40th anniversary of the Tregony Heavy Horse Show, with the celebrations over three days offering something for everyone.

The horse show was the brainchild of village resident Gerald Blackler, whose widow Gladys will be guest of honour, and will unveil a stone to mark the 40th anniversary.

On Friday, August 11, the marquee will host Kernow King from 8pm, with tickets costing £12, available from Tregony Sports Club or the comedian's own website.

Saturday, August 11, sees an evening of free music in the marquee, with a performance from the Straw Dogs mixing modern day anthems with timeless classics.

And on Sunday, August 13, the horse show itself will return, with everything from the heavy horse and Shetland judging to live music throughout the day.

There will be plenty of other entertainment, including circus performances, a model boat display, reptile and birds of prey demonstrations, cowboys, Vikings, a family dog show, classic cars, archery, sheep shearing and dog herding displays, and the usual crafts, stalls and amusements.

The event includes a licensed bar and there will be free parking available all weekend.

Entry to the horse show is £6 for adults, £3 for children, and under fives get in free.
