An Action Packed Event
24 and 25 June 2023
The Fair opens at 9am and closes at 5.30pm.
The main ring has an enviable location, overlooking the expanse of the parklands in front of the stately home.
Ring Events are all falconry/raptor related and will continue throughout the day.
Of course the staff and hawks from the National Centre for Birds of Prey will be appearing!
Flying Demos will feature display falconers from the UK – sadly Covid and Brexit have frustrated the best efforts of our European friends this year!
The flying ground will host an array 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 – it’s been tough times lately!
Mark Naguib MRCVS will be holding a seminar on both days on the veterinary care of captive raptors. To ensure everyone’s safety – it’ll be outside this year!
A range of catering options will be available. Catering vans will be operating in the main show area. In addition the NCBP’s own Owl House Cafe will be serving a range of hot and cold meals and snacks – and really good coffee!
Our bar tent will be open from 11am on Saturday. Serving a selection of locally brewed beers as well as the better known brands. The bar stays open late on Saturday.
On the Saturday evening, as soon as the Fair closes we will be holding a BBQ. All stall holders, campers and visitors are invited.
Tickets are available on the day and cost just £8. They’ll be a premium quality hot dog and a quality burger per person, with a range of home made sides and salads.
The Bar Tent will stay open late, serving a range of beers, wines and ciders. Prices will be comparable to pub prices – if not a bit less!!
