Join us for the
28th Annual GWCT Scottish Game Fair
1st to 3rd July 2016
Scone Palace in Perthshire will once again provide the stunning backdrop for the 2016 GWCT
Scottish Game Fair with a myriad of food, drink, country sports, competitions, main ring events and
‘have a go’ activities running over three thrilling days.
Scotland’s most popular outdoor country event is a true celebration of rural Scotland showcasing its game, wildlife and countryside management. Over 27,000 visitors attended last year and with advance ticket sales well ahead of previous years, we’re anticipating another jam-packed Fair.
We’ve had phenomenal interest from traders this year and are delighted to welcome 50 new exhibitors, taking the total number of attending traders to over 450, all on site selling the finest equipment, food & drink, clothing, crafts and sporting goods across the Fair. To find out more please visit our Exhibitor Page.
For the animal lovers, we’re bringing an unmissable Horse Logging demonstration to the Fair and welcome the return of the ever popular Terrier Racing as well as our much loved Tug o’War, Falconry, Dog and Duck Show, World of Gundogs, Sheep Show and The Fred Taylor Memorial Trophy for Working Hill Ponies. New for this year is The Royal Marines Unarmed Combat Display Team who will be putting on a lively demonstration each day and this is one you’ll not want to miss. Click here to see a provisional Main Ring Programme.
Our Scottish Game Fair is renowned for the myriad of ‘have a go’ activities, traditional competitions and expert demonstrations such as clay and drone shooting, fishing, gundogs, scurry and many more.
We’ll tantalise your taste buds with our Cookery Theatre and Food Hall, it’s literally jam packed with demonstrations and tastings by leading Scottish chefs including Three Sisters Bake and Christopher Trotter.
There is a huge amount of things to do for families and children, who’ll love the many ‘have a go’ activities and competitions. As well as the Wee Beasties Marquee which is a hive of activity with beekeepers on hand to help you have a go at making a wax candle, as well as a live observation hive. Not only this but wildlife sculptor Julian Jardine and the Royal Highland Education Trust will be running a variety of free workshops offering children the chance to get their hands dirty with clay model making. Don’t forget to sign your little ones up for the many competitions on offer such as our new children’s Fair quiz with lovely prizes for every participant – details are in the programme, available to buy on the day.
And, finally, let’s not forget the GWCT’s flagship stand beside the main ring. This year hosting a ‘Grass to Grouse’ theme, it’s a must visit as it highlights the benefits of the Trust’s research, showcasing how science can be readily translated into practical management advice that helps ensure a thriving countryside rich in game and wildlife.
