Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

HAT­FIELD HOUSE in Hert­ford­shire, seat of the Mar­quess of Salisbury, plays host to the great coun­try­side ex­trav­a­ganza for the first time on July 28–30. In ad­di­tion to some 1,000 trade­stands sell­ing ev­ery­thing from a Purdey to a per­gola and a vast range of en­ter­tain­ment, from archery to ea­gles, there will be ex­perts on ptarmi­gan, game cook­ing, Hi­malayan mon­ster fish, an­tique guns, vin­tage tackle and the Ir­ish Mac­nab. Brexit will be a piv­otal topic and Jim Bar­ring­ton will ex­plain whether there’s now any hope for re­peal of the Hunt­ing Act 2004. COUN­TRY LIFE is spon­sor­ing the Vil­lage Green, which will of­fer cricket matches, a Tip­tree gin bar and cream teas. Adult tick­ets to the fair cost £22.50—visit the web­site to see if you’re el­i­gi­ble for a con­ces­sion (www.thegame­fair.org).
