Big Pete Ltd are proud to say that we are the only team in the world who has a driver that is a commentator which enables us to give you a unique and personal display. The only team in the world who has a real working monster truck within the fleet which is the tallest and heaviest monster truck out there by far “Big Pete”. If that’s not enough to get you excited…We are the only team in the UK who has a FEMALE monster truck driver.
Big Pete will be doing 2 displays throughout the day

We are proud to announce that Re-enactment group Roma Antiqua will be attending a show with their Roman Camp, fully equipped with a Military and Surgeons tent. Military talks and a Roman Catapult.

Lintz Hall Farm Chicken and Egg Race
Principal Partners, Lintz Hall Farm Eggs have been producing eggs in Burnopfield, in the heart of the Derwent Valley for four generations. Their team are always keen to involve the public and they bring a great stand situated in the Children’s Area, with free treats and drinks, games and toy tractors for little ones. They have some fantastic chicken and egg costumes created by one of Disneyworld’s costume makers, and proprietor, Richard Tulip and his team will once again be delighting the crowds with their famous ‘Chicken and Egg Race’ around the main arena before the Big Pete Monster Truck attraction. In the afternoon, the two Mascots will be organising an egg and spoon race and encouraging the audience to get into the main arena and join in the fun!
Tractors Through the Ages - Supported by Thomas Sherriffs
From a hand-held sickle, a horse drawn plough, a grey ‘Fergie’ to a computer controlled combine harvester worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, you can see a huge range of immaculate and fascinating agricultural equipment in one display. The passionate enthusiasts who lovingly restore and maintain these magnificent historic vehicles will be delighted to tell you all about their stories. You can watch them spark into action, and chug and puff around the main arena in our Parade of Tractors.
Roman Cavalry Display
We are proud to announce that Re-enactment group Roma Antiqua will be attending a show with their Roman Camp, fully equipped with a Military and Surgeons tent. Military talks and a Roman Catapult. Blue the Bludstepper will also be coming along with his owner to show us what it was like to be in the Roman Cavalry. They will be taking a turn in the Main Arena. The Roman Cavalry training would have been fast and furious, our local pony clubbers will have thrills and spills learning some of these skills.
The highlight of the day for many is the Grand Parade, bringing together the prize winners from the showing classes in a spectacular, narrated parade of the Best of British livestock. The Champions from each agricultural section go forward to be judged for the coveted Champion of Champions accolade.
All times are confirmed in the Show Catalogue – available at the entrance gates on show day.
