Three is the magic number for Lancashire Game & Country Festival

The Lancashire Game and Country Festival, Lancashire’s only dedicated game fair, will once again return to the beautiful Wyre village of Scorton the weekend of this September 9th and 10th for its third successive year.

Having already established itself as a firm favourite among thousands of fans of country pursuits from across the North West, organisers have for the first time devised a two tier ticket system. VIP ticket holders will be able to enjoy a Prosecco reception and gourmet lunch in their own dedicated marquee, which is situated close to the event’s main arena – a stage for the ultimate programme of sporting prowess.

Falconry, fly fishing, hound and horsemanship are among pursuits that will be showcased. And around the showground, there is plenty of opportunity for visitors to try their hand at them and more. The showground is also a hub of rural of industry with craft demonstrations and the best of local produce, kit and countrywear on offer.

Festival organiser Craig Whittingham said: “Lancashire has some of the country’s most beautiful countryside and a strong rural heritage. Through the Lancashire Game and Country Festival, our aim is to celebrate this and encourage people of all ages to appreciate what’s on their doorstep to help our open spaces and traditions remain intact for future generations to enjoy.”

Scorton Showground is just minutes from Junction 33 of the M6 and directly off the A6. VIP festival tickets are £35 each. General admission is £10 for adults and £7 for children aged 10 to 16 years with under-10s admitted free. Parking is also free. Tickets can be ordered online at a discounted rate. Overnight camping is also available with free, live Saturday night music on offer.
