THE countdown has begun to the 60th anniversary of The Game Fair, the world’s largest annual outdoor countryside-themed event.
Organisers are expecting more than 120,000 visitors over the three days, and you could be there too.
To celebrate the special event coming to Ragley Hall, near Alcester, the Stratford Herald has teamed up with The Game Fair to give away ten pairs of adult tickets — worth £68 per pair — to one day of the event, which is being held from Friday, 27th to Sunday, 29th July.
Hailed as ‘Glastonbury for the green welly brigade’, the annual festival of the great British countryside is returning to Ragley Hall for the fourth time this year.
First held in 1958, The Game Fair covers everything from archery, clay pigeon shooting and shopping, to equestrian, fishing, dogs and falconry — not to mention the food.
The James Martin Game Fayre Restaurant will be a relaxed deli-style experience with a menu created by the TV chef, celebrating the distinct ingredients of the countryside.
James will be there too, cooking, mingling with diners, and sharing his passion for the great outdoors.
Children can take part in fun-filled 45-minute workshops, which include fire building, shelter construction, open fire cooking, low ropes and much more. The Woodland Crèche operates a stay-and-play or full childcare facility with qualified and experienced staff.
Activities within the crèche include bouncy castle, sandpit, water pipes, face painting, arts and crafts, and totem poles.
To be in with a chance of winning some of the tickets we have to give away, complete the entry form on page ten of the current edition of the Herald. Entries must arrive by midday on Wednesday, 11th July.
