Preparations for the second Craft and Country Fair, scheduled for Sunday 19 August, 10.00 am to 5.00 pm in the grounds of Wallington Hall, PE33 0EP are well underway.

The organisers hope it will be even bigger and better than last year’s inaugural event. Find us on the A10, about three miles north of Downham Market.

More than 40 crafts, including pyrography, metal art and wool spinning will be on show in the Indoor Arena, with Fenland Ukuleles giving two recitals, at 11.30 am and 2.30 pm.

The Main Arena features two performances each from the King’s Morris, a group formed in 1978 to perform Morris Dances from across Middle England; Carriage Driving teams, which whirl and spin their horses through a course of cones, and the Lowestoft Dog Agility Display Team, which illustrate the bond between dogs and their handlers.

In addition, the Busybodies Dance Performance Team and Fens Falconry each make a return visit by popular demand, while vintage motor enthusiasts are again well-served, with a parade of cars, bikes, and tractors.

For those who like participation sports, look out for the laser clay pigeon shooting, archery and fly-casting, plus the Children’s Activities, which include pony rides (safety hats provided) and an array of exciting games.

Why not take the weight off your feet over tea and scones in the Vintage Tea tent, or enjoy the licensed bar and range of food on offer?

Highlight of the day (weather dependent) is the flypast of a Lancaster bomber. Stop in your tracks to see this historic beast fly over.

Admission is just £15.00 for a family (two plus two); £5 for adults and children over five years; £4 Concessions, and children 5 years and under go free.

No dogs admitted, except service/assistance dogs, so please leave your canine friends at home.
