Details

In August 2017, on The King George V playing fields, The Herefordshire Country Fair, in conjunction with the Word War 1 Commemoration Committee, will be holding the annual Country Fair.

This historic day will be a major civic event. Alongside all the core traditional features of the Fair there will be educational displays, both in marquees, on the showground itself and in the main ring; where the commitment, hard work and sacrifices made by the civilian population during the war years, and how this contributed to the eventual victory, will be reflected. 1917 was a pivotal time – true hardship had set in and the results of conscription, rationing and shortages called for extraordinary efforts to be made by the whole population.

The Fair is now in its 39th year and promises a great family day out. This year we have the usual country fair favourites: terrier racing, working gun dogs, inter hunt relay, scurry racing, clay pigeon shooting, fly fishing and a parade of foxhounds. With over a 100 trade stands, the shopping and craft marquee and the fabulous food hall, the fair offers a great shopping experience. We look forward to welcoming you.
