We’re made up of Lyndsey, John and Erin, who all love a new adventure. We try to get away as much as possible, especially during school holidays and variety is a must for us. That means staying anywhere from a luxury hotel to a hostel and it’s not often we go to the same place twice.

The East Anglian Game and Country Fair

2023 was our first time visiting the East Anglian Game and Country Fair and we were completely overwhelmed. We didn’t know what to expect, how much money to take or what would be there. The site is absolutely huge and you can easily spend all day there. In fact, you really need a full day to be able to see everything and even then, you will likely miss bits.

Food and drink

One area where you can easily spend a lot of money is on food and drink during the day. This is a very well established event and you’ll find all kinds of food and drink to choose from. Not only is there a food hall selling pre-packaged products as well as sweet treats and snacks there but there food trucks everywhere.

We found there to be food available for all tastes and requirements, including vegan food, burgers, chips, crepes, curries… just to name a few. We actually had a hard time deciding what to eat because there was so much choice. The prices reflect the event though and are generally, not very cheap.

The East Anglian Game and Country fair is a shopper’s paradise. You’ll find tents and stalls selling a wide variety of products, suitable for the whole family. What was really interesting to me was the range of products that you could buy here. We found everything from well-known brands such as Joules to tombolas for kids and the more traditional ‘farm’ and country-style clothing and accessories. We loved wandering around the shops, looking at everything from furniture to arts and crafts.

Live displays

One of our favourite aspects of the East Anglian Game and Country Fair was the live displays that were on throughout the day. You have the main arena displays such as The Squibb Freestyle Team with their motorbikes, world champion fly caster Hywel Morgan, the dog and duck display and the Horseboarding UK Championships. There’s also British Scurry and Trials Driving and gun dog displays if that’s more your kind of thing.

We stopped to watch some of the displays and were absolutely amazed. We had no idea what Horseboarding was before our visit but we found ourselves clapping and cheering the whole time. It was really exciting. We also really enjoyed The Squibb Freestyle Team, who put on a fantastic show. Some of the stunts they do are really daring and dangerous!

Dotted around the event are plenty of other live displays to enjoy. This includes Breckland Landrover Club 4×4 Display, the hilarious sheep show and the pet dog show, as well as many others. Make some time to catch one of the live cooking demonstrations in the Game Fair Country Kitchen too; they’re really interesting and you’ll learn a lot!

Get involved

Something I loved the most about the East Anglian Game and Country Fair was how much there was to do there. I don’t just mean the displays, the shops and the food but things you could actually get involved with yourself. Visiting as a family, this also meant that I was looking for things for all of us to do, including Erin.

Throughout the day we took part in quite a few different activities, all of which came with an additional fee. Some of the attractions include a funfair, climbing walls, archery, a carousel, bungee trampolines, slides and water walking balls. You can give clay shooting a go, throw some axes, visit the air rifle range or visit the adorable petting zoo. We found some activities to be better value for others, so it might be an idea to have a look around first before deciding on what you want to do.

Would we go back to the East Anglian Game and Country Fair?

We had such a fabulous day at the East Anglian Game and Country Fair. There’s such a wonderful range of country activities to try, world class events and it was more of a family event than I could have imagined. New attractions are added each year, as well as having others back by popular demand. This is such a great family day out and I cannot wait to go again!
