Put Sunday 7th August in your diary now.
That’s the date for this year’s Cheshire Game & Angling Fair – one of the greatest one day family shows in Cheshire.
Just like previous shows, visitors to the Cheshire Game & Angling Fair are invited to pitch up a seat ring-side, enjoy the stunning food on offer from many of the food stands then simply sit back and relax with the whole family and enjoy a non-stop line-up for main ring entertainment all day long.
Visitors can get up close to the action expecting beautiful displays of falconry and Newfoundland rescue dog demonstrations along with exhibitions provided by security dogs, hounds and gun dogs.
With so many activities to get involved in and live music entertainment, food and craft stalls there’s plenty of attractions for everybody to enjoy.
Joining the main ring programme will be the returning Ferret World Road Show which is certainly a popular one amongst children. Having featured on TV and Radio, Ferret World introduces children of all ages to ferrets in a fun, educating way by presenting an informal talk followed by the famous ‘Ferret Run’.
If you’ve never been to any other game fairs then Cyril the Squirrel will provide some fun-filled family entertainment.Cyril and his amusing team of terriers have been established as the leading Terrier Racing Display team in the UK for over 15 years. All the terriers are family pets and enjoy their lives out of the arena on a farm in West Norfolk some compete at agility one or two work in the shooting field, and the rest just have fun doing what terriers do!
Also scheduled to appear twice throughout the programme will be the Vale Royal Falconry with their Falconry Exhibition. With over 50 years combined experience, the Falconry Display educates visitors about British birds of prey and the ancient art of falconry with numerous demonstrations inviting visitors to get involved.
Organised by Ian Griffiths and his team, there’ll be two Gun Dog demonstrations during the day. The demos offer a great insight in how a dog goes through all training stages from a puppy to a fully fledged shooting companion. Visitors can also get involved with three different scurry classes ‘Sprint & Jump’, ‘Retrieve on Water’ and the more advanced ‘Two seen retrieves on water’ which are open for everybody in attendance.
The hounds will be paraded into the main ring by permission of the five present joint Masters along with huntsman Andrew German. Andrew joined the Cheshire Forest hounds in 2007 and he is responsible for the exercising of the hounds and the everyday running of the kennels. He’ll be assisted by his Whipper-in, Sam Goyette.
