Since its debut at La Haye du Puits, Castel, in 2018, the event has been held at Les Paysans, St Peter’s, and it is now a major event on the local summer calendar.

‘We knew from the reception we had that first year that we would need a bigger venue and the show has grown year on year,’ said organising committee chairman Ron Le Cras.

The 2021 show will be taking place on the weekend of 31 July and 1 August.

The theme of the show will again be equipment, working life and pastimes from the 1940s to the 1960s.

‘We would love to be able to bring steam engines over again from the UK, but we’ve still managed to increase the size of the show using what we have locally,’ said Mr Le Cras.

The Guernsey Military Vehicle Group will be occupying a whole field this year while the Guernsey Rabbit & Cavy Club has asked for a bigger tent.

Working displays of farm equipment, a local crafts village, a beer tent, sheep racing and a variety of children’s entertainment will be among the other things on offer.

Day passes will be the same as last year at £7 and £3 for adults and children respectively, with under fives getting in free. New for this year will be early-bird weekend passes, which will cost £10 and £5 for adults and children respectively. Details of where these can be bought will be published later.
