Organisers of the GWCT Scottish Game Fair have received an exceptional response from traders looking to exhibit at Scotland’s largest country sports event.

The GWCT Scottish Game Fair, which takes place at Scone Palace Parklands on July 3-5, with headline sponsor NFU Mutual, has attracted an impressive line-up of more than 500 traders over the three-day event. The event offers visitors unrivalled shopping opportunities across food, country sports, arts and crafts and clothing.

Always a big draw for visitors is the Fair’s food hall, which was the recent focus of two episodes of the BBC Farmer’s Country Showdown series that explored the farm to Fair journey of four of its traders. This year offers a similarly impressive line-up of producers, while the Food Theatre will host several new chefs who will be showcasing their skills in demonstrations all weekend long.

Together with exhibitors, competitions, country sports activities, a revamped main ring programme, the 32nd GWCT Scottish Game Fair is shaping up to be the best yet, say its organisers.

Bruce Russell, Director of GWCT in Scotland, said:

“We are delighted with the response we have received from traders this year. As well as a revamped main ring programme and country sports activities, visitors to the 2020 GWCT Scottish Game Fair are in for an excellent shopping experience. It is great to see so many traders keen to return to the Fair as well as an exciting line up of new faces.

“Last year we welcomed over 30,000 people through the gates and, with tickets selling fast for the 2020 event, this year looks set to be no different. We would encourage visitors to book in advance to take advantage of our online ticket packages and beat the queues on the day.”

Proceeds from the Scottish Game Fair go to the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust Scotland’s charitable work to raise vital funds for wildlife conservation science in Scotland.

Applications for trade space at GWCT Scottish Game Fair 2020 have now closed. Those wishing to exhibit may still apply for a space on the waiting list. All applications must be made online.
