The Yorkshire Game & Country Fair

We’ve had a glorious run of Spring weather over the past few days, so we decided to take advantage and visit the Yorkshire Game & Country Fair, being held just down the road from Sherburn at Scampston Hall. It’s quite a while since we’d been to an event like this and it was also Ralf’s first visit to such a busy venue. He took it all in his stride and was fantastically well behaved (for a Schnauzer anyway!). There was almost no barking and he trotted along nicely on his lead, so perhaps we’ve turned a corner. There was lots to see, with classic cars, tractors, equine displays and clay pigeon shooting, plus lots of food available, from Thai cuisine to fish and chips. We even managed to grab a couple of pints in the bar. It was busy, as you’d expect on a sunny Sunday afternoon, and getting out of the car park at the end of our visit took a while, but we had a great day and we’ll add the event into the diary for 2024. This Blog is a low word, high photo offering – enjoy the photos, including some at the end from above Sherburn, which we took on our way home.

    I asked ChatGPT to write a post about the event and it came up with this:
    The Yorkshire Game and Country Fair is an annual event that takes place in the beautiful countryside of Yorkshire, England. This event is a celebration of all things country, from hunting and fishing to farming and outdoor activities.

    The fair is held over two days and attracts thousands of visitors from all over the country. It is a great opportunity for people to come together and enjoy the best of what the countryside has to offer.

    One of the main attractions of the fair is the range of activities on offer. Visitors can try their hand at clay pigeon shooting, archery, and even falconry. There are also demonstrations of traditional country skills such as sheep shearing and blacksmithing.

    For those who are interested in hunting and fishing, there are plenty of stalls selling equipment and offering advice on the best places to go. There are also displays of hunting dogs and birds of prey, which are always a hit with the crowds.

    The fair is also a great place to sample some of the best local produce. There are food stalls selling everything from traditional Yorkshire pies to artisan cheeses and locally brewed beers. There are also craft stalls selling handmade goods, such as pottery and textiles.

    Overall, the Yorkshire Game and Country Fair is a fantastic event that celebrates the best of the countryside. It is a great day out for all the family, with plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained. If you are looking for a fun and educational day out, then this is definitely an event worth checking out.


I'd love to hear your thoughts, so grab a pew and I'll make you a brew - Hobnob or Bourbon?
