Evants in May

Hi Basil and all.
The Falconry fair used to be part of the Deer Fair, held At Cornbury Park in Oxfordshire. It then moved to Cheshire and the Deer bit disapeared.
Anyone know why and if it could be revived?

i thought the falconry and deer fair was held at offchurh in warwickshire then moved to Chetwyndd park
since it moved to shropshire the deer side of things split to be a show of it's own right before it realised it did not hav the suppoprt or finaces to carry on so that's why it is now just a falconery show and the biggest in Europe, i was led to believe
but things are on the up and if all the big organisations and sponsors can work together then a deer/stalking fair could hav its day again :)
if the interest and advertising gained momentumn
if the NGO with their new deer branch BDS, BASC Country side alliance and so on worked together they could not only make profit from entry sales but be a world leader in such a gamefair
dreams i know
hey ho
can't live with out them :rolleyes:

fairs in may

a few years a go all country sports organisations used to come together at boughton house near Kettering.the duke opened up his estate to all the local school children.a big marque was set up and all the organisations put on a display and encouraged the kids and teacher to stake part were possible .me and my other half did the deer show bit. on behalf of the deer society,over the years we have worked at many country fairs with the b.d.s and for the b.d.s. hopefully some of those kids are now keen shooters
