Annual Country Fair – Picton Castle & Gardens
About the Event
Come along to our annual Country Fair and celebrate the countryside in a fun-filled weekend for all the family – including your family pooch! This amazing event is now a firm favourite in our calendar. With lots of things to see and do there is something for everyone: from our Dog Shows, Dog Agility and Novelty Classes to Target Archery. There’s so much to see and do – not to mention our wonderful food, art, craft and produce stalls, a Beer Tent and Village Cream Teas!
From local produce and crafts, to dog shows and target archery, country fairs are just one of the great British traditions which still have the power to remind us of a slower pace of life.
Originally held mid-week, country fairs are now largely held over weekends so that everyone can enjoy pursuits once everyday stuff to country folk, yet splendidly alien to many of us. Picton Castle and Gardens has embraced the old with the new, heralding this great British tradition as an annual event within the boundaries of our 40 acres and the glorious backdrop of the Castle.
If you’re bringing along your family pooch, there’s an opportunity for them to strut their stuff in the novelty and pedigree dog show classes.
The only place to head after such energetic participation is our Courtyard Restaurant – Maria @ Picton – where an indulgence of fine food will round off the experience – and then there are the Village Cream Teas…the Beer Tent….The Picnic Box…
Admission Prices Adults £7.00, Seniors £6.00, Children £4.00, Family Ticket £24.50, Under 5’s : Free
