The Falconry and Raptor Fair will premier ultimate aspects of the falconry world. A variety of birds of prey demonstrations in the main arena, including eagles, hawks, falcons and owls will delight visitors. The birds may also be viewed at close range to appreciate their magnificence on special static displays. The weekend is a special occasion in the falconry calendar. The link between mankind and birds of prey has, for centuries, held a romantic association. This will be something that visitors will find fascinating when they experience the close encounter of seeing the grace, beauty and power of the most spectacular birds in the world.
The two-day family-fun weekend is also host to a popular Country Fair which highlights a highly-entertaining range of country leisure pursuits including an Invitation Beagle Show (on Sunday), and Stickdressing and Ferret shows (on Monday). Rolls Royce enthusiasts will be providing a splendid display when they bring their superb vintage vehicles to the showground on the Sunday.
