The highly anticipated Kelmarsh Country Show returns in 2018
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’.
