CLA Game Fair
The Country Land & Business Association Fair is the biggest countryside exhibition in the world. In 2012 it was scheduled to be held at Belvoir Castle, and in 2013 it will be held at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire.
As well as nearly 1,000 exhibitors, in areas such as Gunmaker's Row, Fisherman's Village, Gamekeeper's/Estate Management Row, the Regional Food Village and Elegant Gardens, there are various show spaces hosting demonstrations (cookery, fishing and more), displays (from falconry to ferret racing), debates and discussions, competitions, workshops and opportunities to 'Have a Go'.
Advice and tuition is offered in traditional countryside sports, such as shooting, falconry, and fishing, and activities include driving on a 4x4 course, clay pigeon shooting and bungee trampolining.
Ragley Hall, at the heart of the Ragley Estate, dates back to 1680 and covers 400 acres of land. A hugely popular tourist attraction in the spring and summer months, this is a glorious location for the 2013 CLA Game Fair.
