Scurry to Scorton this September for the

Lancashire Game & Country Festival!

This year, dog owners are specially invited to scurry down to Scorton Showground on Saturday and Sunday, 7th and 8th September to have fun at the Lancashire Game & Country Festival. They can test their pet’s retrieval skills and help a worthy cause at the same time.

Lancashire’s popular Game Fair is opening up its gundog scurries to all dog breeds for the first time to raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity. It will be organised by expert Helen Crick, who works in the fire and rescue service. She says: “Scurries are timed, have-a-go challenges that simulate a gundog’s work in the field – come along with your pet.  We’ll look after you!”

Dog lovers will also enjoy meeting hounds from the Vale of Lune Harriers and Bleasdale Beagles as well as being able to enter their own dogs in lurcher and terrier shows together with lurcher and terrier racing. Some of the lurcher classes are also qualifiers for the upcoming Midland Game and Country Fair.

Equine enthusiasts will relish the hotly contested horse classes - and shooters? You could win a fabulous shotgun in Blackpool Sporting Clays’ 40 bird competition!

Anglers can get expert advice from the world-renowned Game Angling Instructors Association (GAIA), who run the festival’s fishing arena this year. These qualified GAIA coaches are a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of game and fly fishing.

Producing game for the table is key to the event and there will be demonstrations from Honeywell Meats, of Woodplumpton and Bilsborrow, and Hadrian’s Game Larder of Hexham. Also in the food and retail areas, Lancashire producers will be showcasing delicious treats, and there is country clothing, footwear and accessories on offer, as well as showcasing innovative, cottage industry crafters and artists.

The festival, supported by of the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), the Lancashire Constabulary Rural Wildlife Unit, the British Deer Society and the National Gamekeepers’ Organisation, will open its gates both days at 9 am, at Scorton Showground just off the A6, minutes from Junction 32 or 33 of the M6.

There are VIP tickets at £35 each, inclusive of a Prosecco reception and a gourmet lunch created by chefs from Garstang’s exclusive Wyrebank and served in a dedicated marquee by the main show ring.

Event tickets are £10 for adults and £7 for children aged 10 to 16 years with under-10s are admitted free. Parking is also free and overnight camping is available with live entertainment on the Saturday night.
