Summer fun at Country Fest 201705/06/2017
What a fantastic weekend of Country Fest 2017! We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who visited the Showground and helped to make the event so successful.
Helped with magnificent weather, the WI Marquee, Sew Crafty Handicrafts, scores of magnificent kites, Young Shepherds & Dog Show not to mention delicious food and drink, packed demonstration areas, music and dance displays all added to an amazing weekend.
Country Fest concluded on Sunday 4th June with absolutely outstanding performances from the thrilling Bolddog Ling FMX Stunt Team, Fell Ponies, Terrier Racing, Kite Flying and Ferret Racing, plus Burneside Brass Band and Fiona Hanlon and not forgetting our long-time favourite, Rigney Bank ballet school’s maypole dancing. The Food Theatre featured former River Cottage Chef, Tim Maddams, Cumbrian rising star Poppy Gregory, Docker Duck Egg Co and McClures, whilst Bethany Knipe ran a childrens’ baking workshop.
With so much for the whole family, and at great value, Country Fest truly was a super, summer weekend!
