The Berkshire College of Agriculture (BCA) in Maidenhead is set to embrace the sight and sounds of spring when its annual lambing weekend gets underway.
Opening its doors to the public the annual event will feature a wide variety of activities including the chance to see baby lambs been born.
"It is just a brilliant family day out for all ages," said BCA marketing manager Sarah Irving.
"It is the biggest event we do. It has just grown and grown."
Last year about 14,000 people flocked to the Hall Place site to enjoy attractions including sheepdog displays, a livestock show, strongman competition and ferret racing.
This year wildlife enthusiasts will have the chance to see the latest additions to the college, Scottish wildcats Garton and Alvie.
The two-day event starts on Saturday, April 27 and continues the next day. Gates are open from 10am-4pm and entry is £15 per car.
