THOUSANDS of people flocked to the Robin Hood Country Show at Brentwood Centre over the weekend - despite the typical British weather.

As one of the largest fairs in the county, crowds lapped up jousting and stunt riding and revelled in the birds of prey showcase and ferret racing spectacular.

As ever at country events, dog shows were many visitors favourite event, with many pets showing their agility jumping through flaming hoops.

Lurcher racing and sheep sheering shows also kept families entertained.
