Living Working Countryside at this year's Cotswold Show


Living Working Countryside at this year's Cotswold Show

True to its countryside roots, this year’s Cotswold Show on 5th and 6th July at Cirencester Park will be showcasing a wide range of activities in keeping with the Earl Bathurst’s ethos for the Show of ‘When Town Meets Country.’

Traditional crafts will include fish smoking, flax processing, a forge and sawmill, living willow fencing and fly tying.

There will be glass blowing and chain saw demonstrations as well as lace making and leather working.

Carpentry enthusiasts will be able to watch woodcarving and chairmaking.

The Falconry village will have around 30 birds of prey on display and falconers will be showing visitors all aspects of working with the birds; training and hunting as well as health and welfare.

For horse lovers there is a fascinating display of working horses. The demonstration will show the horses working through a variety of obstacles in both trace harness and a timber arch giving you the opportunity to see what small spaces they can work in and their flexibility in a working woodland environment.

Butts Farm will also be back at the Show with their rare breed animals and Atkins Alpalcas of Minchinhampton will display a number of animals and there will be a chance to have a go at weaving.

The Cotswold Pheasant and Poultry Club will be on site with 80 rare birds.

The Earl Bathurst says: “We want to entertain and teach people a little bit more about what goes on in the countryside but at the same time give them a really enjoyable, family day out.”

Early bird tickets, with big discounts on the gate price, are now on sale via the Show’s website www.cotswoldshow.co.uk.
