Sunday, 5 October 2014

Autumn Show and Game Fair - 4th & 5th October 2014 at the South of England Showground, Ardingly. The Countryside Alliance will be at the Autumn Show & Game Fair which is a great day out for fans of hunting, shooting and fishing, with lots of attractions. Last year 16,500 visitors were encouraged to come and ‘have a go’ at traditional country sports.
With the demand for country sports increasing each year in this region, we expect another fierce competition in the clay pigeon shooting, run by Dan Kerwood and his daughter Charlotte Kerwood who won the Ladies’ High Gun Trophy last year and recently took Commonwealth Gold in the Double Trap.
Clay pigeon shooting, gundog training, ferreting, terrier racing, dog agility, fly fishing and falconry all play an important role at this truly country life show and planning is already underway to ensure that this theme continues for 2014.The Lamb Grand National was a popular new addition to the Show last year and we are looking forward to confirming a wide range of exciting countryside and rural displays this year.We are also expecting some spectacular displays from the National Vegetable Society and the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies this year to mark the grand finalé of our Year of Horticulture.
