About the event

Will see the marquee and field filled with stall holders and exhibitors. The arena will hold displays – birds of prey flying, dog and duck show, den-building competition and children’s hour, featuring races and all kinds of fun! There will be experts to teach all about wildlife and conservation – a ‘guide in hide’, pond-dipping, bush craft, nature arts, bug-hunting, species identification, photography and more – fun and informative activities for young and old. There will be plenty of food and drink available throughout the day.
