Countryside capers

There will be plenty of fun for all of the family over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend as a country show comes to Kelmarsh Hall.

There will be some fantastic countryside activities and championship events at the Kelmarsh Country Show which has been organised by Countryman Fairs.

Showcasing country life at its best, the Kelmarsh Country Show attracts a fusion of families and field sports enthusiasts who take part in an outstanding range of countryside attractions and family entertainment. Among the attractions will be the Knights of Middle England, and the Essex Dog Display Team.

Two brand-new Great Wall Steed SE pick-up trucks will be up for grabs in the Great Wall Motor World Series Clay Shooting Championship’ (with Promatic), and the ‘Great Wall Motor World Series Gun Dog Championship’ (with Chudleys dog food).

For those looking to do a little retail therapy, there will be a wide range of countryside inspired goods with more than 200 exhibition stands.

There will be clothing and accessories as well as an array of rural crafts and demonstrations, the show promises to offer something for everyone.

There will be picnic areas, seven feature areas, children’s entertainment, food festival, craft and antiques fairs to culminate in the perfect family day out in the countryside.
