Hampshire Country Sports Day on Sunday 14th September at Tichborne Park near Alresford, is all set to provide a fun packed celebration of country pursuits, with fantastic displays and competitions throughout the day.

Highlights of the main arena include the Inter Hunt show jumping competition, demonstrations from hunter gatherer Chris Green the Cornishman and from Jonathan Marshall Falconry. There is also a clay pigeon shooting competition with tuition stands for those who’d like to try their hand at shooting, plus fishing demonstrations, gundog and family fun dog shows and a terrier and lurcher show, providing fun for all the family. There will also be many experts on hand to give more information on country sports and to answer show visitors’ questions.

This year’s show will sadly be without author and cook Clarissa Dickson Wright, who passed away in March. She was a regular at the show and she will be sorely missed by the show organisers and visitors alike. The Countryside Alliance is planning to give a tribute to Clarissa at the show.

Gates open at 9.30am and the main ring events start at 10 am. There will be more than 75 trade stands, and a varied choice of food and drink, with a Licensed bar. Admission is £10 for adults and is free for children under 14 and the event will be signposted from Alresford. For more information, visit www.hampshirecountrysportsday.co.uk.

Show Chairman Bill Tyrwhitt-Drake commented “The Hampshire Country Sports Day is a great opportunity for newcomers to find out more about country pursuits, while enjoying a fantastic day out. ’The Show has been running for over 30 years and all profits are donated to the Countryside Alliance to help with their campaigning work on behalf of rural communities.
