See us at The Midland Game Fair this weekend

 

Given some decent weather, crowds of 90,000 people will visit the Midland Game Fair at Weston Park  this weekend, the 15th & 16th September. Established 29 years ago, the MGF has become a national institution, and throughout its growth has retained its unique atmosphere, offering both visitors and exhibitors a true celebration of country life. Over 300 trade stands and crafts will attend, among whom Country Attire will be one of the largest trade marquees. Around the park you will find over 40 show ground attractions, many with a country theme.

The Midland Game Fair actually started off as a small gathering of like-minded people on the Earl of Bradford’s lawn. The shows founder, Philip Poole, was returning from the CLA Game Fair, and thought it would be great fun to hold a similar event at Weston Park. He and a friend called in to see Lord Bradford on the way home, and the Midland Game Fair was born. In 1983, when 3,500 country sports enthusiasts congregated on Temple Field, they had no idea of the significance of that day. Twenty-nine years on, and well over a million visitors later, the Midland Game Fair still retains its unique appeal and atmosphere.

This is Country Attire's last show of the 2012 season, and it's been a very challenging year with so many of the top shows being called off or curtailed by the awful summer weather. But as always we've been privileged to meet so many of our online customers face-to-face at the shows which have gone ahead, and we've found lots more good friends who have joined our happy band of devoted customers.

As you would expect we will be showing all the usual Barbour and Hunter favourites, plus a whole host of new brands, which we guarantee you will LOVE and below you see a small selection. But if you live anywhere in central Great Britain this weekend do come and meet us at Weston Park. It's a lovely venue with lots to see, and the Food Festival looks very exciting this year.
Whether through traditional farming, specialist rearing or sporting endeavour, the Great British countryside provides some of the most exquisite culinary delights imaginable. In the age of hypermarkets and imported foodstuffs, it is sometimes easy to overlook the fact that some of the best tasting and wholesome foods are produced on our very doorsteps. There will be game preparation and cookery throughout the day and you will be able to try legendary rabbit pasta, venison sausage rolls and game pies, plus advice on how to source, prepare and cook game yourself.

So don't miss out! Here's your chance to finish off your summer outings with a memorable day out, and don't forget to see Country Attire for some exciting new brands and of course to get togged up for winter with style and quality.
