North Norfolk’s weekend Country Fair has announced its 201 line-up including new attraction - The Red Arrows!
At the heart of Holkham Country Fair, which takes place on 22 and 23 July, lies the Grand Ring boasting a hub of spectacular displays and performances for visitors to enjoy. This year the line-up showcases three major firsts* for the two-day event, which are:
The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team
The Red Arrows is one of the world’s premier aerobatic display teams and for the first time ever, will be one of the main attractions at Holkham Country Fair (Sunday only*). As part of their display the team will exhibit their trademark speed, close formations and precision flying.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Display
The display will return to the skies of Norfolk as Holkham Country Fair brings visitors a unique opportunity to see the iconic World War II Spitfire, Hurricane and Dakota on both days.
The Way of the Cossack Warrior are legendary warriors, masters of the Shashka sword in knife throwing and pistol shooting with outstanding gymnastic skills all performed on the back of galloping horses.
“It’s a real pleasure to welcome spectacles as prestigious as The Red Arrows, The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Dzhigitovka! to Holkham Country Fair," says Sarah Green, Organiser for Holkham Country Fair. "We always strive to stage spectacular displays in the Grand Ring and this year I’m thrilled we can announce an incredible triple whammy in new features to this year’s event!”
Around the Showground is the new Woodforde’s Food Village - a celebration of artisan food producers and local food offering visitors the opportunity to relax with a real ale, sample and purchase local farm produce, cheeses, chocolates and pies.
For visitors seeking an adrenaline rush the Fair has a brand new Zip Wire ride where thrill seekers of all ages can whizz through the park on the 60m long zipline.
Aside from the brand new attractions on display at Holkham Country Fair, there is still an array of countryside favourites including Sporting Clay Pigeon Shooting, The Band of The Parachute Regiment, Hound Parade, Jump4Heroes Extreme Human Flight Team, Historic Car Parade, over 200 Trade Stands and Fishing Demonstrations with Casting competitions and tuition.
“With the charm of a traditional British agricultural event and a host of family-friendly activities and displays, Holkham Country Fair really does have something for everyone. We hope to see you on 22 and 23 July.”
