Summer arrived early at the weekend’s Kelmarsh Country Show, welcoming in glorious sunshine and visitors in their thousands all ready for a weekend full of Bank Holiday fun!

Taking place in the stunning grounds of Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire, the Kelmarsh Country Show had lots going on for families of every age and interest. Arriving into the Main Arena in style, one of Kelmarsh’s headline acts, the spectacular Red Devil Parachute Display Team, wowed the crowds with their amazing performance and, the all-new Interactive Arena too, proved hugely successful as visitors got involved in the more hands-on demonstrations from the likes of Ridgeside Falconry and Gamegoer Gundogs.

Also arriving at Kelmarsh over the weekend, was the first sets of qualifiers in the Chudleys Gundog Championship, BASC Clay Shooting Championship and the Terrier and Lurcher events. Year on year the sporting championships prove very popular and once again, we saw lots of interest from gundog handlers and clay shooters wanting to see how they fare in these high performing competitions.

Whether visitors came to shop, watch the superb demonstrations or simply soak up in the celebratory atmosphere, the sun certainly did shine down at the Easter event. Operations Director, Jerome Roberts, says of the weekend’s celebrations: “It was fantastic to see so many people at Kelmarsh this weekend. In particular, it was great to see our newer features such as the all-new Kids Zone and Chefs Demo Theatre prove popular too, ensuring all ages and interests were catered for. With Kelmarsh the first event in the Countryman Fairs portfolio to kick start the game fair season into action, we can’t wait to welcome in our other shows and welcome everyone back to see what we have in store.”
