Far Forest Society Countryside Show

12th and 13th August 2017


We are working hard on another great weekend of countryside entertainment for 2017.

In 2016 we held our second 2-day show, building on the successful 2015 show. We made changes to our main attraction in the Main Arena which brought a wider demographic to the showground and we aim to do the same again, building on successes to attract more visitors and more traders.

Many of our visitors are interested in attractions that reflect the fact that we are a countryside show. So we have a significant number of animal exhibits where people can interact with farm birds, sheep, pigs, and horses among others, as well as more exotic creatures such as alpacas and traditional country pursuits such as falconry. The hardware of living in the country is always a feature with our ever popular tractor rides and exhibits that show off farm machinery including classic tractors and stationary engines.

The Sunday Dog Show run  by, and in aid of, Forest Dog Rescue, is always a huge attraction as is the live music stage. Other entertainment around the ground often includes bouncy castles, pony rides, water zorbes, bungee trampolines and in 2016, laser clay pigeon shooting.

Trade stands around the show represent a wide range of products and services from lamps and candles to pet food, pocket money toys to personalised slate plaques. Further interest in the Craft and Hobbies Marquee where homecrafters demonstrate and sell the products of their hobby - cards, candles, fabric-work, chinaware, wicker craft or willow work to name but a few.

Food is of course of paramount importance when out for the day so we aim to provide a wide range from sandwiches and home made cakes made by the Far Forest WI through Cream Teas to Gourmet burgers  and, in 2016, Mexican fayre. The food marquee is always a great attraction with locally produced products on sale to take away. Breads, cheeses, pickles, drinks, ice-cream are often in the mix each year.

There is a licensed Bar and teas and coffees are also on sale around the ground - so why not grab a drink, sit back and enjoy the entertainment. On the Saturday evening entertainment goes on until 10pm.
