Bowood country fair back again in family fun
2:00pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in Latest News
The Wiltshire Game and Country Fair will return to Bowood on Saturday and Sunday with plenty of entertainment for all the family.
The event, which is in its seventh year, has grown steadily in content.
New attractions will include the walk up shoot, a demonstration displaying gundogs, handlers, shooters and props in a simulation of a day out at the shoot.
Another new event in the falconry village is the eagle show, to include a display of bateleur, Russian steppe and African fish eagles.
There will also be a scurry racing championship, a parade of hounds, sheepdog demonstrations and a display by Pakefield Ferrets in the show’s two arenas.
Shoppers can choose from hundreds of country and craft stalls, selling everything from clothing and accessories to handcrafted art and regional food and drink.
In the country kitchen there are five new chefs, including Mark Lees from Crayfish Capers, who will show visitors an unusual way to deal with the American signal crayfish.
Madge Needham, from living heritage country shows, said: “It’s a massive show. We run about 12 country shows and they’re all big events, but Bowood is a very popular event. Even if it rains at country shows, people still come out because they can sit in the marquees.”
The show will be open from 10am to 6pm daily. Tickets are £11 for adults, £10 for pensioners, £4 for children and under fives enter free.
