The Bank Holiday’s Highclere Country Show welcomed plenty of sun, superb sporting championship qualifiers and a whole host of family fun and entertainment. With visitors attending the event in their thousands, we’re thrilled so many were able to enjoy an excellent day out at the Highclere Country Show.
The weekend’s line up didn’t disappoint either. With so much on the bill this year, including a brand new Countryside Arena, all ages and interests were catered for. From the Devil’s Horsemen and the fun Essex Dog Display to the ever-popular Ye Olde Redtail Falconry, everyone was able to enjoy a variety of outdoor entertainment inside the Realtree Main Arena too. Other popular features at Highclere this year included a Folk Roots Festival, Food Festival, an animal tent, ferret racing, as well as lots of crafts and antiques, and with the huge array of trade stalls selling lots of wonderful countryside goods and produce, the outdoor event ended up being very well received from a truly receptive audience.
The weekend’s event also played host to further qualifying rounds in the Chudleys Gundog Championship, BASC Clay Shooting competitions and Terrier and Lurcher events with many confirming their places at this September’s Midland Game Fair Grand Final.
Operations Director, Jerome Roberts says of the weekend’s showcase: “We are so pleased that so many of you joined us at the Highclere Country Show over the Bank Holiday weekend. Once again we’ve been spoilt with the glorious sunshine and we are thrilled that visitors got involved in all that was going on. With three more events still left in the Countryman Fairs calendar this season, we do hope visitors will join us once again and get involved in lots more outdoor countryside pursuits!”
