About the event

The Wiltshire Game and country Fair graces the magnificent grounds of the Bowood Estate, for the sixth time in succession. 

Several new attractions have been added to appear alongside old favourites. The Cotswold Cart Horse Society perform an entertaining arena demonstration.  Visitors can visit these graceful horses at their static display too. Horse Boarding - extreme, to say the least and David Seamark Sheepdogs make an appearance for the first time this year.

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. As a treat for visitors, cider tasting is included at Bowood.


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. More traditional children's entertainment is included.


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.


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