As the second bank holiday weekend of the month approaches, many of us will be getting together our plans to make the most of having three days off. If you’re stuck for ideas however, fear not, as one spectacular event boasting a little something for everyone just might be exactly what you’re looking for.

The British Country Show Kent will take place at the Wings of the Morning Field in Wrotham near Sevenoaks on Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27. Each day, visitors can look forward to a whole host of amazing entertainment, displays and experiences.

Described as a “summer extravaganza with something for the whole family to enjoy,” the two-day event will include Jonathan Marshall Horseback stunts, a motorbike and BMX stunt team, barrel racers and falconry displays. For any foodies out there, cooking displays will also be taking place, full of handy advice and tips to help you improve those kitchen skills.

Once you’re done there, head into the world of the mysterious and fantastical by watching one of the wonderful Magic Shows from Marlene, or by taking the little ones to meet some real-life superheroes. A dog-friendly event, there will also be dog classes, competitions and shows hosted by charity We Love Dogs.

The event’s organisers added: “The British Show is an event that provides all our visitors with a fun day out but also the opportunity to learn and emerge themselves in some new hobbies. If you are looking to pick up a new skill, why not go and visit our amazing rural crafters in our crafts area, where they will be demonstrating some truly unique and traditional crafts that have become extremely rare to come across.”

The event will be held between 10am and 5pm each day, with free parking available on site. Tickets for the event are on sale now and range, starting at £12 for adult tickets, £5.50 for children’s tickets and £11 for over 65s. Children under 5 enter free and family tickets are also available. Full ticket details can be found here.
