Up to 80,000 showgoers flooded through the gates of the event.

The show featured gundog events, angling in the Prince Albert Fishing Village, country sports, clay shooting and an airgun demonstration along with a folk roots stage, Celtic and country stage and a jazz and blues stage.

Traditional country crafts were being demonstrated and anyone wanting to learn how to skin a fallow deer was not left disappointed.

Emma and Mark Nixon and their sons Sebby, 10, and Alex, 13, had travelled from Shrewsbury to the show. Regulars at the event, Mark, 57 and the owner of a farm shop, was keen to watch the shooting while 45-year-old Emma, who works in a school, and the boys looked around the food tents.

“We have been to the game fair many times and each year there is something different to see,” said Emma. “We really enjoy the food tents and the boys like sampling all that’s on offer.”
