Up to 100,000 people are expected to flock to a stately home on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border this weekend for the annual Midland Game & Country Fair.
The fair, one of the biggest events of its kind in the country, is taking place at Weston Park, near Shifnal, today and tomorrow.
While many visitors will be there for the National Shooting event taking place over the weekend, there will also be a selection of entertainment, competitions and demonstrations for all ages to enjoy.
During the weekend Weston Park will see the Mitsubishi Motors World Series Clay Shooting and Gundog Championship Grand Finals, the Countryman’s Weekly Champion of Champions Terrier & Lurcher events, and the European Field Target Championship.
There will also be fishing, a chance to get close to birds of prey with Redtail Falconry, and displays in the main arena.
Danielle Derry, spokeswoman for organisers Countryman Fairs, said: “Along with championship finals in a host of sporting disciplines, the show will provide entertainment too, bringing a collection of family favourites back to the Shropshire countryside.
“From world-class demonstrations in one of the 19 feature arenas, to the myriad of displays showcasing our rural heritage, it will be a truly fantastic day out.”
There is also a food village selling home-grown and traditional produce, a working dog village showing gundog breeds of every type, a terrier and lurcher village, gamekeepers’ row and the airgun expo.
Tickets cost £17 for adults, £6 for children aged four to 14 and £44 for a family of two adults and up to three children.
