The South of England Hound Show

The first in the calendar of five hound shows held in the UK, the South of England Hound Show is in its own dedicated arena near the Blue Gate behind the main office. Friday is Foxhound Day and Saturday is Beagle Day with packs coming from all over southern England. Come and meet the hunt staff, watch the hounds being judged and visit the kennels. Everybody is very welcome to come along and talk to staff to learn about the importance of hound breeding and judging.

The Countryside Ring

On Sunday the hound ring welcomes an array of countryside sport displays including gundogs, falconry, bloodhounds, shoeing, foxhounds, longdogs and more. Enjoy this rare opportunity to get up close to some of these stunning creatures and find out more about them from their owners.

All ages can channel their inner Robin Hood and try their hand at archery under the expert supervision of Joe’s Bows. Or those aged 11+ can have a go at the traditional country sport of axe throwing. Price: £3.50 per 6 arrows or axes.
