Surrey Game and Country Fair
The Surrey Game and Country Fair is a fantastic opportunity for families to experience rural life in Surrey.
The Fair brings together all manner of rural activities including clay shooting, gun dogs, falconry, terrier racing, hounds, sheep dogs, vintage tractors, a food hall and food theatre, tractor and horse ploughing and spectacular main ring entertainment. Something for every member of the family.
The Fair is held in the stunning setting of Loseley Park. Just minutes from Guildford and the A3, the Fair welcomes up to 10,000 visitors each year.
The 2015 Fair was a great success and we are looking forward to the 2016 event. Here are a few of the highlights that visitors will enjoy.
The Bob Hogg Lamb National – "The funniest thing I have ever seen!". Watch and cheer as the hardy Herdwick sheep in their individual colours and wobbling jockeys tackle their own Grand National course. With names like Sheargar and Red Ram you will love this hilarious family extravaganza.
Hownhall Shooting will once again provide a whole day of 'have-a-go' and competitive shooting. Adults and children can experience the thrill of muzzle loading, the sportsman stand, the pigeon stand and the air rifle stand. Established shots can enter the 50 bird sporting layout with targets to test the most seasoned shooter. There are awards for ladies, gentlemen, junior and overall High Gun.
Warrenby Gun Dogs return to Loseley with their gundog demonstration team. Visitors will see how the experts train their dogs and handlers of all ages and abilities. Loved by all dog owners!
Huxley’s Falconry team are back with buzzards, owls and falcons. See how these beautiful birds go about hunting in the wild. Fantastic!
The Food Hall is even bigger this year and incorporates the Food Theatre with demonstrations and education. Visitors can also sample a whole range of food and drinks grown, reared, brewed, caught or baked in Surrey.
We laughed so much in 2015 that we just had to invite the Terrier Racing back. Fast and furious – and dogs of all shapes and sizes can take part too!
Shopping and rural crafts galore – with an opportunity for some early Christmas shopping, visitors can shop till they drop. From unique jewellery to picnic hampers to hand carved walking sticks, there will be something for everyone.
The Family dog show returns, with classes for every size and type of dog. This year we have fabulous prizes from the Artful Dog Studio too! Also back by popular demand is the dog agility.
The Surrey County Ploughing Match is once again being held at Eashing Farm in Godalming, just a short drive from Loseley Park and this year we will be running shuttle buses back and forth. An unmissable rural spectacle.
