Thame Country Fair

divider

2nd – 3rd May 2020

Thame Showground, Thame, Oxfordshire OX9 3JL

The popular annual Thame Country Fair is back again in 2020, on its new date of Saturday & Sunday May 2nd & 3rd. There will be the usual blend of family and countryside entertainment; exciting displays in the two busy arenas, or one of the many smaller rings; ‘Have a Go’ activities for the children and absolutely loads to buy, see and do. It really is a family day out, with something to captivate the youngest to the oldest – and including the family dog. We have a lively programme of arena entertainment, with newcomers Tom Henfrey Shires – a Shire Horse Logging Display and Steel City Security Protection Dog displays, all mixing with the old favourites, all exciting fun.

Another really brilliant display for 2020 is the new Medieval to Modern Falconry Display with Ben Long and his team. Enthralling, entertaining and informative, this takes the audience on a captivating falconry journey from the side-saddle lure training of Tudor Times, right up to date with the technological wizardry of ‘RoboCrow’ who will demonstrate a fabulous aerial battle with one of the falcons, showing exactly how a raptor hunts its prey – with ongoing speeds and heights all included in the commentary. Meet the stars of the show afterward in the designated Falconry Marquee, and you may even get the opportunity to fly one.

Of course, there are the usual craft marquees and demonstrations; ‘Food Glorious Food’ area with delicious food halls, cookery demonstrations in the Country Kitchen and the Piazza area where you can sit and relax listening to live jazz and blues. All in all, a great family day out including lots for the children to do and watch.

Tickets will also be available on the gate.

Living Heritage run a series of events across the UK, with a number of Game & Country Fairs, Craft Shows and two very successful Food Festivals. Their aim is to give families a great day out.
