The Midlands goes to the CLA Game Fair - the Big Countryside Event

11 July 2014

Thousands of people from across the Midlands are getting ready for The CLA Game Fair, the world's largest countryside event, which takes place at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, next week (Friday 18 – Sunday 20 July).

With over 1,000 exhibitors and attractions (over 150 from the Midlands) and up to 140,000 visitors expected over the three days, this is the event of the year for anyone and everyone interested in the countryside. Importantly, it also provides local companies from the region with an international shop window. 

The CLA Game Fair is firmly established as the leading annual shop window for the countryside. It encompasses all aspects of rural living and offers a unique three days of entertainment, exhibitions, features, displays, championships and competitions.

Have-a-Go is the theme which runs throughout the hundreds of acres where visitors will have the chance to try activities which range from clay shooting, archery and 4 x 4 driving to dog training, laser combat, hands on falconry, mountain boarding and quad bikes. Add to this international level competition in Spey casting and gundogs plus a major equestrian section, Hooked on Horses, gardens, art and antiques and the Totally Food Show, and The Game Fair offers a world class event at a local level.
