THOUSANDS turned out for the 75th anniversary of Cleveland Show, where stunts on horseback and dog agility took place alongside rural craft contest and livestock judging.

The show, at Stewart Park in Marton, Middlesbrough, saw crowds turn out in force on Saturday (July 28), despite the occasional shower.

It featured a knitted recreation of the royal family wedding, created by Nunthorpe and Marton Knitters, which had previously been on show at Nunthorpe railway station.

The knitters also created finger puppets which were included as prizes for the children’s treasure hunt which took place around the show field.

One of the highlights of the main ring was a performance by The Devils Horsemen team, whose horses have appeared in television shows and films, including Game of Thrones and Doctor Who.

There was also a dog show and a dog agility display by Cleveland Clever Canines.

Traditional livestock classes for cattle, sheep and goats, as well as poultry, rabbits and guinea pigs and vintage machinery.
