2 whole days of fantastic family fun and now with added Bongo's!
Here's the blurb:
On Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd July we are proud to be hosting our seventh annual Countryside Fair at Blakemere Village.
This event is inspired by County Shows (only a lot smaller obviously) mixed with a traditional Village Fete to create a day out for all ages to enjoy. Open from 10am until 5pm each day, this brilliant family friendly event celebrates the best of our beautiful British countryside and the many pursuits available locally. Enjoy animals, fun dog shows, artisan stalls, craft activities, arena displays and demonstrations, fair rides, local clubs and associations, delicious food stalls, outside bar and prosecco stall and much more.
This year’s event headlines Dog & Duck Shows, Pig Racing, Chain Saw Carving and Falconry Displays in our Arena. There are also Donkey Rides, Ferret Racing and meet and greet, plus Fair Rides for all the family.
Admission is £3 Adults, £1 Children aged 4 - 16, under 4's are free but once inside the Fair there are various free activities to enjoy including Circus Skill Workshops suitable for kids and adults alike, Children’s Craft Activities - make sheep and chicken puppets (ideal for kids aged 18months to 11 years), Face Painting and last but by no means least fluffy Chick Handling.
Plus, don’t miss our Free Fun Dog Shows held each day with new categories this year, so if you have a dog with the shiniest coat or its most talented or best dressed you may want to get involved! We also have categories for cutest puppy, best junior handler and the dog the judges would most like to take home. Registrations must be submitted each day before 12 noon, with categories running from 12.15 until 13.15, culminating with the Best in Show.
Wristbands are issued on admission so that visitors can come and go from the Fair throughout the day so that you can also enjoy the many other attractions and activities also on Blakemere Village, from numerous small independent shops selling everything from Yankee Candles, Mexican silver jewellery and Pip Studio china to golf wear, artisan gifts, cupcakes and traditional sweets in our restored Edwardian stables. Or stroll around the village, which is also home to a small garden nursery, an upmarket pet shop, an aquatics centre, fashionable ladies boutiques, furniture shops and huge antique emporiums.
But if shopping isn’t your thing then enjoy one of our many activities! Blakemere offers a gem of fantastic outdoor and indoor activities for all ages - there’s archery, Segway, crazy golf, a play barn and low ropes, pottery painting, glass blazing, micro-brewery tastings and tours and much more.
And if you fancy a welcome break pop into The Village Restaurant & Coffee Bar for delicious food and drink, in fact why not relax on their patio with a nice glass of wine! Or call into Heirs & Grace Tea Room for a nice pot of tea or coffee served on beautiful china – we bet you won't be able to resist one of their gorgeous cakes.
