The East Anglian Game and Country Fair is an annual two day, family event held at the Norfolk Showground, Norwich. The next show will take place on April 23rd & 24th 2016.

Set in glorious parkland, The Norfolk Showground is a fantastic place to host The East Anglian Game and Country Fair and they're sure you will find something for the whole family to enjoy at the show, including your dog.

There will be lots of new displays including The Royal Signals White Helmets, a team of 25 serving soldiers from the Royal Corps of Signals. The display is a mixture of unique feats of balance, skill and coordination with high impact speed cross over rides. A fire jump, quad jump and reverse riders all make up a stunning main arena display. The 21 rider pyramid stack is a world famous manoeuvre and real crowd pleaser.

There are excellent equestrian displays and workshops at the East Anglian Game & Country Fair. Teams take on the clock around a course of gates, set to challenge the best boarders and horse riders, from long straights into sweeping bends and ninety degree turns.

Jim Greenwood’s Lurcher display is to interest, educate and entertain the public. His demonstrations demonstrate that the Lurcher is much more than just a fast dog. Lurchers need to be able to retrieve like a Gundog, scent like a Spaniel, mark like a Pointer and of course be fast enough to catch a rabbit.

They have a fantastic line up of more free events to watch in the Main and Countryside Arenas. Ring displays also include 6 times FITASC Sporting World Champion, European Champion and English Open Champion John Bidwell.

West Norfolk Hunt will be taking the hounds for a parade of the ring, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Flight of the Falcons, Ferret Racing, Fly Fishing, Sheep Dog and Duck Display, Lurcher Displays, Gun Dog demonstrations and much more.

The Countryside Arena demonstrations illustrate the stages of training for spaniels and retrievers as they are prepared to become working gundogs. In the Main Ring, the roles and work of spaniels and retrievers are demonstrated in the context of the shooting field. Mid Norfolk Gun Dog Club will be running the Gun Dog Scurry competitions and a Team Gundog Working Test.

Whether you are a practicing falconer, nature enthusiast or not the falconry village is sure to keep you entertained. There will be mini events going on all day in the arena, lure swinging competitions and talks on hunting plus several stands to browse along with expert advice from falconers.

The Forestry Village hosts ‘The East of England Cutters & Climbers Competition’ and Pole Climbing Competitions. The forestry arena will be a buzz of activity with chainsaw carvings, felling demonstrations, tree climbing and pole climbing competitions.

If Bear Grylls is your thing then Woodland Ways Bushcraft & Survival will be demonstrating their vast knowledge of bushcraft & survival techniques. There will be opportunities throughout the day to get ‘hands on’ and learn some skills for yourself.

Norwich Vikings Trials Motorcycle Display will have a range of riders from those on modern bikes to those who prefer the classic bike and classes for all abilities.

The game fair country kitchen has a great new line up with a variety of cookery workshops and demonstrations taking place over the weekend from a selection of local chefs, including Celebrity Chef Chris Coubrough, Rachel Green, Andy Snowling, Justin Kett and Na Hansell plus many more.

A wide variety of some of the best Independent schools from across the region will be on view in the Fine & Country educational zone.

Children of all ages will be able to take part in countryside activities and meet several animals, including alpacas and enjoy donkey rides.

Join in and 'have a go' at a range of country activities from clay shooting with John Bidwell’s High Lodge instructors or enter the 40-bird re-entry shooting competition for men, women and juniors. Fly fishing with the Salmon and Trout Association, ferret racing and archery to paintballing and crossbows. Take a helicopter pleasure flight over the showground, try the air rifle range, hold a bird of prey or take a ride in a Landrover on the off road 4x4 course.

There are over 300 shopping stands with a wide variety of products from fashion and footwear to gun makers, eco products, fishing products and home improvements. Plus craft halls and gift marquees.

The main bar will be serving a great selection of local beers and drinks over the weekend.

go every year and really enjoy it - loads of things to see and do. Not an event if you're dog phobic though as there tend to be more dogs than people!
