Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4 June 2017
What a fantastic first day of Country Fest 2017! On behalf of the Society, a huge thank you to everyone who visited the Showground on Saturday and helped to make the event so successful.
Helped with magnificent weather, the WI Marquee, Sew Crafty Handicrafts, scores of magnificent kites, Young Shepherds & Dog Show not to mention delicious food and drink, packed demonstration areas, music and dance displays all added to an amazing day.
Country Fest continues on Sunday 4th June with lots more of the same, including the absolutely outstanding Bolddog Ling FMX Stunt Team, Fell Ponies, Terrier Racing, Kite Flying and Ferret Racing, plus Burneside Brass Band and Fiona Hanlon not forgetting our long-time favourite, Rigney Bank ballet school’s maypole dancing. The Food Theatre features former River Cottage Chef, Tim Maddams, Cumbrian rising star Poppy Gregory, Docker Duck Egg Co and McClures, whilst Bethany Knipe is running a childrens’ baking workshop from 10.00am. There’s also the fantastic Rabbit Show; even the weather is looking good.
With so much for the whole family, and at great value, we hope to see you there!
