In photos: The Royal Norfolk Show 2015

I love the Norfolk Show, particularly for the animals but also for the amazing businesses that comes to show what they can do; the fantastic displays and shows; and all the lovely people who come together to celebrate our county. Our day started with watching the parachute display team fall from a very bright, very blue sky, trailing colourful smoke as they descended.The Norfolk attractions section of the show.
