THE Rhug Country Fair is upon us as the event will bring traditional country pursuits to the forefront of Corwen’s spectacular countryside.

Rhug Estate, well-known for its organic farm products, covers 12,500 acres that will stage host to a wide variety of events, from traditional country pursuits to high-octane action over the weekend.

The event will include 170 stalls and exhibits including food, craft and rural antiques and a licensed, undercover bar.

Top of the bill for the weekend are distinguished motorbike stunt team ‘Up Force’ that will be performing six times across the weekend.

North Wales Falconry will also be demonstrating their skill, and Falcons, Hawks and Owls will be soaring throughout the show, with whom visitors will have the opportunity to come face to face.

Ironwork sculptures made by the British Ironwork Centre will be scattered around the show, and visitors will be greeted by giraffe sculptures living alongside a stalking lioness, alligators and African elephants along with many other stunning life-sized animals.

There will also be a fishing area with casting demonstrations, fly fishing lessons and numerous stalls will take place, and a shooting area with the BASC shooting school, clay pigeon shooting and archery. There will be many more events across the weekend for visitors to enjoy and get involved in.

Lord Newborough, owner of the Rhug Estate, said: “We are delighted to be able to host the Country Fair again. There was such a buzz around the place last year when the event was held here for the first time.

“It’s fantastic to see all the traditional country pursuits being enjoyed by visitors to the event.

“Rhug is becoming increasingly popular for holding such events as we are ideally situated in the centre of north Wales; we have good access from the A5, flat fields, catering facilities, a vast sheep shed providing wet weather protection and the conference facilities.”
