Watch the 10th World HFT cham­pi­onship at the Kel­marsh Coun­try Show - de­tails here

Coun­try­man Fairs are de­lighted to wel­come back the Kel­marsh Coun­try Show to their event cal­en­dar for 2018. Taking place over the 1st and 2nd of April, at the pres­ti­gious Kel­marsh Hall in Northamp­ton­shire, the Kel­marsh Coun­try Show re­turns this Easter week­end in what prom­ises to mark a fan­tas­tic start to a busy show sea­son.

Taking cen­tre stage, the 10th World Hunter Field Tar­get Cham­pi­onship is set to re­turn to Kel­marsh Coun­try Show. The two-day air­gun shoot­ing com­pe­ti­tion will see 360 en­trants from around the world shoot two, highly de­mand­ing, 30-tar­get cour­ses in the es­tate’s wood­land.

Renowned as the largest air­gun­ning com­pe­ti­tion of its kind, the over-sub­scribed com­pe­ti­tion was closed for en­tries a full two months ahead of its end of Jan­uary dead­line. It’s a great spec­ta­tor sport, and vis­i­tors to Kel­marsh Coun­try Show are wel­come to watch the nail-bit­ing com­pe­ti­tion as marks­men bat­tle it out for the 2018 ti­tle. With a cash prize fund of £3,000 and a host of raf­fle prizes up for grabs, the com­pe­ti­tion is set to be fierce. Or­gan­iser, Pete Sparkes, com­mented: ‘We are amazed how this com­pe­ti­tion has grown year on year. The race for com­peti­tors to se­cure a place in the cham­pi­onship had peo­ple fran­ti­cally booking on the day we re­leased the en­tries!’

For any bud­ding HFT shoot­ers or peo­ple who are look­ing at get­ting in­volved in air­gun­ning, the BASC (Bri­tish As­so­ci­a­tion for Shoot­ing & Con­ser­va­tion) will be hav­ing some ded­i­cated ‘have a go’ air­gun ranges for all ages to ‘plink’ away with qual­i­fied coaches. There will be a va­ri­ety of tar­gets on of­fer for peo­ple to shoot at, and your child could walk away hav­ing shot his first ‘kill zone’.

To avoid the queues on the day, you can choose to pre-book your tick­ets for the Kel­marsh Coun­try Show, and ben­e­fit from the early-bird dis­count of up to 20% off by vis­it­ing the web­site at www.kel­marsh­coun­tryshow.co.uk. I

You’ll see all sorts of hard­ware on dis­play at the show.

There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one at the Kel­marsh Coun­try Show.

Last year’s HFT World Champ, James McLach­lan, will be de­fend­ing his ti­tle at Kel­marsh.
