We see preparations for the show at Newark Showground - stalls being constructed; a farmer preparing cattle for showing; a group of children travelling to the show by bus; the army erecting a display.

Next at the show itself - judging of cattle; children looking at farm animals; goats being judged; stalls; children enjoying a slide and helter-skelter; a missing child; the Royal Marines free fall parachute team in action and members drinking in a bar.
