About the event

The Sandringham Game and Country Fair is now in its 6th year and just gets better. This year sees new attractions added to some old favourites:

The Sandrinham fair has three entertaining arenas with all day displays, cometitons and top country demonstrations to enjoy. And the events and attractions throughout is breathtaking! Just look at this.

The majestic Falconry Village, thrilling scurry racing, graceful heavy horses, chefs on stage, sumptuous food & drink, gundog working, fun family dog shows, hilarious sheepdog and duck displays, popular lurcher events, free fishing, free 'Have a Go' sessions and there's more!

 

Rural crafts, art and crafts, clayshooting and archery. Endless country stalls for shopping. Superb chainsaw art carving and country competitions. A children's wonderland where they can throw a pot, make a face and watch puppets as well.

Gundogs are a big part of the Sandringham Estate history, so at Sandringham the finals of the Gundog Multiscurry take place along with several other dog events including; the Working Gundog Retriever test & scurry, run by Bill Meldrum (former gundog trainer to HRH the Queen) and Lurcher racing finals with a Red Mills 1000 guineas prize.

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.  

Beautifully restored steam engines, stationary engines and a wide selection of vintage vehicles feature at Sandringham. The Falconry Village, with many of the UK's native Birds of Prey, along with some exotic visitors is a wonderful and memorable experience.

 

Other attractions included are, the Craft Village complete with a working demonstration area, Food Glorious Food where chefs cook up a variety of tasty and healthy dishes and demonstrate how to cook game.

 

Endless country and craft shoping awaits with country clothing, art & carfts, and some wonderful food and drink from local and regional producers.

 

And take time to relax in the Piazza with its British favourites, tasty treats and healthy options.
