Countryside Area

We run competitions for Blacksmiths, Sheep Shearers and Beekeepers as well as hosting a number of practitioners of traditional rural crafts such as stick making, lace making and felting. 

If you are intersted in showcasing your traditional craft, please get in contact with us.

The Axemen will be racing against each other to cut through huge chunks of wood, there are Gundog displays and Bill Galpin’s Racing Terriers, Craft demonstrations, Sheep Shearing competitions and Alpacas.

Other attractions include the Bee Tent and Tug of War.

The Blacksmiths will be holding competitions throughout the day.
