About the event

Now in its 5th year the Cheshire Game & Country Fair goes from strength to strength. Two action - packed, entertaining arenas have a full programme of events, with everything from scurry racing and fun sheepdog and ducks to majestic falconry and co-ordinated Gundog displays and also the:


The Falconry Village has native and some more exotic Birds of Prey, all waiting for the chance to stretch their wings and fly! The Craft Village comes complete with a working demonstration, beautiful contemporary and traditional arts and crafts. Food Glorious Food is perfect for food lovers. Chefs cook up some tasty delights and regional producers sell delicous food and drink.


A special feature is the 8th English Open Chainsaw Carving Competition. Competitors arrive from across the globe to take part in a series of competitions -creating art with chainsaws. Carvers come from Croatia, Denmark, Equador, Germany, Italy, Japan, Sweden and the USA, along with home grown carvers from England, Scotland and Wales! 


The two main competitions are the 'Classic' and the 'Combo', with 30 minute speed carvings taking place daily.  The finished carved art is auctioned daily.


The show's arenas are encompassed by an array of country and craft stalls, selling everything from country clothing and accessories to handcrafted art and regional food and drink.


Children can throw a pot and make a face or 'Learn How To' fish with the Angling Trust, handle a gundog and get close to a hawk. 


If that sounds a little too exhausting, relax in the food courts around the show. Enjoy British classics and tasty treats.
