Ring Events are all falconry/raptor related and will continue throughout the day.

Flying Demos will feature the best display falconers from the UK and abroad. 2020 will see Nathalie Denolf, Ben Long, Gary Swainson and Xavier Morel joining us with their teams of falcons and eagles
The flying ground will host anarray of falconry related trade stands.
Falconry equipment suppliers, hood makers, telemetry suppliers, leather suppliers, ferreting equipment retailers, braided equipment vendors, raptor charities and wildlife conservation charities will all be in attendance.
Please support the trade stands – 2020 has been a tough year for all of us and the exhibitors who are coming this year have decided to make the effort to attend in challenging circumstances!
