Brocklesby Country Fair - the perfect family day out this weekend

Taking place this weekend, Brocklesby Country Fair is the perfect destination for families celebrating Father’s Day with its assortment of entertainment for all ages.

Pre-book your picnic pass and enjoy a quiet parking space in a beautiful lakeside setting close to the ‘Have a Go’ archery and fly fishing.

Participation has always been a key influence at the Fair with ‘Have a Go’ clay shooting and short bore rifles also offering expert tuition in a secure environment.

The Lincolnshire Land Rover Club run exciting and adrenalin charged rides around a steep and demanding off road driving course – a real Father’s Day treat for the dads.

For the youngsters a Mini Farmyard provides a close-up hands-on meeting experience with alpacas, sheep, goats, rabbits, trusty shire horses and extraordinary giant aldabra tortoises.

There is also a free drop-in circus skills workshop where they can try their hands at stilt walking, tightrope walking, plate spinning and juggling.

Following this the Children’s Area provides all they could wish for including dodgems, bungee trampolines and giant inflatables.

For those that like a steadier pace the Cyden Homes Covered Market is home to Lincolnshire’s very own celebrity chef, Rachel Green’s pop up kitchen where she will be holding cookery demonstrations all day.

This marquee houses local artisan food producers and provides a sheltered spot for a sit down on straw bales for anyone needing a rest.

The surrounding Market Place has some exciting street food on offer from ostrich burgers to Thai food, Caribbean wraps and Moroccan lamb.

Or, why not book tickets for a delicious home cooked lunch in the sanctuary of the luncheon marquee where a hot and cold buffet will be served from 12.30pm made with locally sourced ingredients from the Estate.

The Main Ring programme runs from 10am and this year includes The Dog and Duck Show and The BMX Show as well as displays from the Pony Club, Lincolnshire TREC, vintage tractors and of course the Brocklesby Hound parade.

The Country Living area plays host to the trade stands with a wide range of gifts, clothing and items for both home and garden.

With an emphasis on local produce and a wonderful Arts and Crafts marquee you are sure to find some fantastic creations from local talent to take home.

St Andrew’s Hospice and Grimsby and Cleethorpes Riding for the Disabled are the beneficial charities. Find out more about their work from their ring side stands and their main ring appeals.
