Last weekend we visited the Wiltshire Game and Country Fair, which was held in the beautiful surroundings of Bowood Estate. The event was run by Living Heritage who host a number of fun occasions throughout the year. The next events they have in store for autumn include a number of Craft, Food and Drink Shows with one at Sandringham running between the 18th to 20th of November.


The Wiltshire Game and Country Fair at Bowood was a great day out and there were plenty of activities on offer for all of the family. The Falconry Village was home to a number of native and more exotic Birds of Prey. We were most impressed with Costa, a striking owl who comes from South America.


Simon Whitehead took centre stage for his ferreting demonstration, which attracted a strong audience. There were also dog displays, a beagle parade and canine contests held throughout the day. The speed race between carriage horses and an off-road vehicle was highly exciting.


The craft marquee was full of beautiful accessories and homeware and regional chefs also served some delicious food to those attending the show.
