WITH less than a day to go until the Denbigh & Flint Show, excitement is building after a record breaking number of entries for the event.

Entries have been so high in some sections that records are being broken, with 912 horse entries across the classes, including a record 35 in the heavy horses section.

The cattle tent is also at capacity with 100 entries, and strong numbers have been put forward for the fur and feather section.

It’s not just in the livestock and equine sections that have been popular, with the vintage section set to showcase more than 100 vehicles, celebrating 75 years of Land Rover and Nuffield Universal and 90 years of Fordson N Dagenham.

The event, which dates back to the 1800s, will see vintage tractors, machinery and classic cars, a horticultural marquee, and a poultry and pigeon marquee where more than 200 classes will be judged, comprising of more than 700 birds.

A pigs section, light horse classes, show jumping (in three rings), a sheep section, a cattle marquee, and a heavy horses competition will also take place.

Once again this year, there is a packed programme across the showground.
