Late May Bank Holiday Sunday & Monday May 29th & 30th

The 5th Game & Country Fair returns to Burghley this Bank Holiday with exciting new attractions. Racing Llamas, Tom Longton and his Sheepdog Displays in the Main Arena, and our new Owl Show in the Falconry Village, to name just a few.

The Blackrock Llama Racing Team are new to Living Heritage, they promise to provide a unique blend of exciting interactive fun in the main arena. Watch as two teams of super llamas compete against one another in a fast action relay race. Cheer as members of the audience, under the supervision of their trained handlers, lead their llamas through a testing obstacle course, jumping the hurdles, zig zagging through the weaving poles, ducking under limbo bars, running through tunnels and negotiating the hanging vines. A truly unique, exciting, action packed display, a highlight of the event.

There’s lots of activity in the Cookery Kitchen with Game to Eat Chef Tony Robertson presenting a series of Game dishes. He is joined by Simon Spindley, who came to prominence as a quarter finalist in’ Master Chef.  He will be showing how to make his award winning sausages. Students from The College of West Anglia complete the Kitchen line up, they will be displaying their culinary skills during the course of the weekend.

There are plenty of attractions for dog lovers, Gundog Arena Demonstrations, Clinics and Training. Not to be missed is the Multiscurry Challenge, a competition involving three scurries which culminates in a finals weekend at the end of each year.

There’s Lurcher Racing and Show, Fundog Show, with further fun dog events in the main arena such as Chase the Bunny and the brand new Steeple Chase for pet owners.
