STOKE Place held its an­nual Sum­mer Coun­try Fair on Sun­day.

Set across 26 acres of Ca­pa­bil­ity Brown de­signed gar­dens, the fair saw a host of fam­i­lies en­joy live mu­sic, games, food and drinks, along with a spe­cially cu­rated mar­ket.

The Grade II listed build­ing, which is a 17th cen­tury Queen Anne mansion house, is found in Stoke Po­ges and it played host to a va­ri­ety of mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment through­out the day.

Live mu­sic acts in­cluded the Dap­per Dudes, a duo play­ing fa­mil­iar songs made fa­mous by artists such as Nat King Cole, Michael Bublé, Nina Si­mone and Si­na­tra.

There was also a chil­dren’s en­ter­tainer, face paint­ing, crazy golf, sand art and a fal­conry dis­play.

And this won­der­ful se­lec­tion of photos doc­u­ments how ev­ery­one young and old had a fan­tas­tic time at the fair, as the young­sters re­ally em­braced the chal­lenge of con­trol­ling birds of prey.
