The fair weekend kicks off on Saturday, October 2 with live music from 8pm in the market square before the big day.
It will feature a funfair, music, dancing and entertainment on the market square stage, stalls, craft shows, vintage cars and, the sheep show itself.
The weekend will conclude with a second sheep auction on the following Monday.
