FAMILIES will be able to enjoy all the fun of the countryside at Blakemere Craft Centre.
The Sandiway venue’s Countryside Fair is back for its fourth year on Saturday, July 21 and Sunday, July 22, offering displays, fun activities, crafts and much more.
All the proceeds will go to Blakemere’s chosen Charity of the Year – the Children’s Air Ambulance.
Last year’s event attracted 8,000 people across the weekend and raised £2,000.
Ginny Brooks-White, manager at Blakemere, said: “The fair is getting bigger and better every year and we hope this year is even bigger still.
“It has been so well supported and every penny raised goes to charity.
“This year we have some fantastic new activities and we are looking forward to a great weekend.”
The fair will include shire horses and alpacas, archery, wall climbing, wicker weaving, trade stalls, food and craft marquees, Wall of Death motorcycle displays and a barbecue and beer tent.
There will be a fun dog show on the Saturday in the main arena, with prizes for the waggiest tail, most talented, the dog that looks most like it’s owner, golden oldie, cutest puppy and dog the judges would most like to take home.
Admission to the fair is £1 per adult with children under 16 admitted for free.

They can be completed and brought to the fair, or competitors can enter on the day.
