A special 'Ambridge Village' is being set up at the Three Counties show in Malvern, which runs from Friday, 18 to Sunday, 20 June 2010.

The radio soap is celebrating 60 years since the first recording was made.

Many of the cast will be there, and there will also be line dancing, welly wanging, ferret racing, and a 'guess the weight of the piglet' competition.

Dairy and beef farmers David and Ruth Archer (Timothy Bentinck and Felicity Finch), and their organic farmer cousins Pat and Tom Archer (Pat Gallimore and Tom Graham), will join other Archers' characters in chatting to show visitors.

On Saturday, 19 June a special 'Green Welly' ticket will give show visitors exclusive access to 'The Bull Upstairs', where they can meet famous Archers actors, pick up a special Ambridge Treasure Trail, collect a jubilee goody bag, and enjoy a free glass of cider.

A gold ticket gives visitors the chance to enjoy a three-course Diamond Jubilee Gala Dinner and Brain of Borsetshire quiz in the evening.

Archers' editor Vanessa Whitburn and actor Charles Collingwood, will be sharing their fascinating experiences and offering a whole new perspective of life in 'Ambridge'.
