Herefordshire Country Fair

August 6, 2017

£10

In August 2017, on The King George V playing fields, The Herefordshire Country Fair, in conjunction with the Word War 1 Commemoration Committee, will be holding the annual Country Fair.

This historic day will be a major civic event. Alongside all the core traditional features of the Fair there will be educational displays, both in marquees, on the showground itself and in the main ring; where the commitment, hard work and sacrifices made by the civilian population during the war years, and how this contributed to the eventual victory, will be reflected. 1917 was a pivotal time – true hardship had set in and the results of conscription, rationing and shortages called for extraordinary efforts to be made by the whole population.

Three rings of non-stop all-day entertainment

The Fair is now in its 39th year and promises a great family day out.  This year we have the usual country fair favourites: terrier racing, working gun dogs, inter hunt relay, scurry racing, laser clay shooting, fly fishing and a parade of foxhounds.  With over a 100 trade stands, the shopping and craft marquee and the fabulous food hall, the fair offers a great shopping experience.  We look forward to welcoming you.
