The Countryside Zone

In our Countryside Zone, we'll have plenty of performances and demonstrations throughout the day. In the main arena, as well as agricultural showings from our students and our animals, we'll also have demonstrations from Terry Large Falconry with his birds of prey flying display, the Thwaites Shire Horses complete with dray, gundog display by Philippa Williams of Castlemans Gundogs (Crufts 2018) and more.

New for this year will be sheep dog trial demonstration run by the Fylde Sheep Dog Society. Watch handlers as they direct their dog by whistles and commands to move sheep around a field, fences, gates, or enclosures to score points in a ‘One Man and His Dog’ style show.

Not only that, there will be the agriculture marquee with displays of sheep and cows. Watch the art of sheep shearing, see the Dutch spotted sheep and some rare breed animals.

‘Have a go’ at some countryside activities including archery, airgun shooting, clay pigeon shooting and a BASC Chudleys Scurry. Please note additional charges for these activities.

The Countryside Zone is home to a variety of organisations connected with the agriculture and countryside areas, charities, public services and more.

Watch this space for information on the many exhibitors who will be in this area as they are confirmed.
