Our popular Sandringham Game and Country Fair returns this year, it’s a haven for Country Sports enthusiasts due to the extensive range of activities to either watch or take part in. It’s also an absolutely wonderful day out for the family.
We are delighted to welcome back to Sandringham, the wonderfully popular Shire Horse Society, who will have their own village in the show where you can come and meet these magnificent horses up close and ask as many questions as you like. They will also be demonstrating in the Andy Singleton Arena with a variety of nostalgic drays and carts – definitely one not to miss! We also have the incredible Moment in Time Team, who combine living history re-enactment displays.
For the children there is plenty to do: from a free twenty minute fishing lesson, through to learning how to use a rifle in our unique inflatable Daisy Range for young shooters. They may prefer to fly a bird of prey or pose with a Hedwig lookalike; meet some historical re-enactors from hundreds of years ago; create a pot or similar work of art. They will love cheering on their favourite in the ferret racing, meeting the cute and furry hamsters, running with the hounds or stopping to play awhile in Fiery Jack’s Interactive Games Museum. One thing’s for sure: they will be tired at the end of the day.
There are special classes for children in the Waggy Tails Fun Dog Show, which is open to any breed, as is the Chase the Bunny Competition. For gun dogs there are multi-scurries and training clinics as well as demonstrations of walk-up shoots. There is terrier and lurcher showing and racing and if you fancy something a little different, minor breeds of all sizes shapes and purposes. The arena in the dog zone is given over entirely to doggy displays, of various sizes and breeds.
In the other arenas we are pleased to be welcoming back the Horseboarding UK teams, for their next international heats. Horseboarding is an extreme sport where competitors are pulled around an obstacle course on a skateboard type contraption by a galloping horse – thrilling to watch! Also competing on horseback, we have the Shetland pony sweepstakes – great fun as these little ponies with their young riders hurtle around the course, and in complete opposite to the little shelties, N&J Shires will also be there, with their carriage rides and will also be available to meet and greet.
Vintage and steam also play a huge part at Sandringham Game and Country Fair, with a huge field of steam engines; military vehicles of all shapes and sizes, classic cars and emergency vehicles and agricultural machinery. For those preferring a more modern vehicle, there will also be the Sherwood Jaguars with their sleek fleet of sports cars.
