It’s the biggest countryside event in Wales and it’s an action-packed weekend with masses of entertainment for the whole family. The Welsh Game Fair will be held at Pembrey Country Park on June 20 and 21. There’s so much going on over the two days, here’s a brief idea of the programme:

Something for everyone

There are dare devil stunt shows using motorbikes, quads and cars; falconry displays, dog handling, coursing demos, casting tuition for anglers, terrier and lurcher shows, dog racing, archery, a massive craft fair, trade fair and the delicious food hall. And that’s just a taster!  

Children’s corner will have bouncy castles, quad bikes, fairground rides and loads more activities.

In the main arena the Adrenaline Tour will feature Jason Smyth, one of the UK’s leading quad bike and motorbike stunt riders, with many years of experience in top level Motocross. He will stage an amazing motorcycle display, including stunning freestyle jumps 30feet in the air.

See Dingle Fingle the undercover policeman who is out to catch Slippery Sid, the classic car thief in an action-packed show with two mad cap clowns, moving car stunts, quad stunts, drifts, donuts, precision driving and high speed crosses. Not forgetting the 30 gallon water cannon.

Ye Olde Redtail Falconry Display team will be showing their skills, there will be duck herding demos by Meirion, who has won many a sheepdog championship. Duck herding shows off the fantastic talents of border collies to great effect.

Ever-popular simulated coursing demonstrations will take place on both Saturday and Sunday in the main arena.

Casting Champion Hywel Morgan will be providing expert advice in the casting clinics and demonstrations on a purpose-built casting arena. The Welsh Salmon and Trout Association will also be there to provide guidance and advice on all angling matters.

The Terrier Show, on the Sunday, is a qualifier for The Countryman’s Weekly Champion of Champions 2015 and the Champion Terrier will compete in the Finals at the Midland Game Fair in September. Similarly, the Lurcher Show is also a qualifier for The Countryman’s Weekly Champion of Champions 2015.

Huntsmen and hounds compete on the Saturday for the title Best Hound in Show, and this is a traditional collection of hounds and their handlers.

A team of Koomeska Siberian Huskies and their handlers will be there and you can meet them in the Countryside Alliance ring. Dave Bytheway a professional chainsaw expert will demonstrating his skill in carving figures from logs, using only his chainsaw. Cariad Ferrets will offer an insight into the world of the working ferret and its traditions. Penrhiwpal Shooting Club will be present on both days with a range for children and adults to ‘Have a Go’.

David Jones Farrier from Pencader will demonstrate of the art of horse shoeing on both days and Cymric Archers will be present all weekend with their ‘Have a go’ stand. Not to be missed!
