Countryfile Live 2017
On Sunday, we headed down to Blenheim Palace to go to the Countryfile Live event that was on all weekend.
Last year, we went to the Game Fair at Ragley as it was really close to home but with it being a bit further afield this year, we decided to go to Countryfile Live as Blenheim isn’t too far away and the event looked fabulous last year.
We got there at around 11 and were greeted by the giant gates and an impressive row of grey Fergies.
There was lots to see and do, it was different from some of the other country days out that we have been to in the past as there were less shopping stands and more attractions & shows to see.
We spent some time in the livestock area, it was great to see so many British breeds celebrated! There was even a Highland calf which was so sweet…
Lots of the exhibitors were really interesting, one had a sample of lots trays on the table filled with peas, oats, barley, linseed etc. to identify and feel. It was a really interactive display and definitely drew people in.
Once we had sampled the great food that was on offer and browsed all of the exhibits we could manage, we found a hay bale by the centre ring and watched some of the acts.
We saw the lamb national, the dog & duck show, the BMX stunt show, a gun dog display and a falconry display. There really was something for everyone!
We had a great day out at Countryfile Live and I would definitely recommend it as a day out. There are lots of great things to see and do there, and it would be a great day out for children too.
