The Burghley Game and Country Fair returns to Stamford this coming Bank Holiday bringing with it a feast of entertainment and activity from the countryside.

The countryside really does come to life with three main show arena’s including the new ‘World of Dogs’ arena.

The Andy Singleton Arena is the largest of the arenas providing fast paced action of the scurry driving, a horse and carriage event against the clock. Watch the horse boarding if you dare, it truly isn’t for the faint hearted with a team event of man, horse and skate board, being towed around the arena at high speed, for the title of fastest lap.

New this year is Stunt Mania, featuring the UK’s only female motor bike stunt rider, known as the fire queen.

The Special Events Arena provides countryside demonstrations of falconry, working ferrets, gundog displays and fishing.

The World of Dogs Arena is an ever increasing attraction, introduced last year it provides a focal point for the dog section of the show. There will also be a fun dog show.

Not to be missed is the fine food hall where local and national producers of selected cheese, bakery, cakes, sausages and fine wine are sold.

The Burghley Game and Country Fair is open Sunday, May 29 and Monday, May 30, from 10am until 6pm. Admission is £13 adults, £12 for over 65s and £4 children.
