IT'S one of the highlights on the Isle of Wight events calendar and it's back for 2022 — Chale Show is on this weekend.

The popular event is on both Saturday and Sunday and incorporates arena displays, a stage of live music, a horticultural show, fairground rides and much more.

Headline arena acts this year include Ollie Phillips Equine Display. Ollie and his team will be providing an equestrian stunt show featuring trick riding and Spanish Dressage.

Another big draw is Extreme Bike Battles, fresh from a recent appearance at Camp Bestival.

Appearances will also be made by magician David Randini, Haven Falconry, vintage tractors and marching bands.

Children will love the fun races in the main arena — and there's a prize for everyone.

On the Mountbatten Sunflower music stage there will be music from Trio Latino, Soul Lounge, Company B, Fortingall, Fusion, Milo and Blackfoot Daisy.

There's even a church service on Sunday morning.

Children will enjoy the character shows which can be found opposite the fairground, and there's cute goats to admire behind the craft tent.

The horticultural marquee is always a big draw, usually packed with entries of fruit, veg, crafts, flowers and a wide range of unusual items.

Prize presentations take place at 5pm on Sunday and then there's an auction of the produce, to raise money for Mountbatten.
