'One of the last truly traditional country fairs'

Where: Frampton Court Estate, Frampton-on-Severn, Gloucestershire GL2 7EP

When: Sunday, September 8, 9.30am

Thousands of visitors are set to descend on Frampton-on-Severn this Sunday (September 8) for Frampton Country Fair - one of the last truly traditional country fairs.

Come and celebrate all that is great about the countryside and the people who work and live in it.

Held in 30 acres of beautiful parkland of Frampton Court Estate, the fair boasts over 400 trade stands, three display rings and a traditional fun-fair. There is so much to see and do.

New for this year are the Great War Display Team and the Shetland Pony Performance Team - very different but both exciting in their own way.

The Great War Display Team will conduct a 'dog fight' in the sky using three biplanes. The Shetland Performance Display Team are a team of young children who display exactly how versatile the Shetland is. They perform to raise money for the Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal.

The Main Ring is once again set to host a fabulous array of spectacles and entertainers, while the Countryside Ring gives you the chance to get up close and personal with a variety of country pursuits.

The Lake Ring will host fly casting competitions through to the highly entertaining water retrieval.

The Living Working Countryside is at the heart of Frampton Country Fair. Here you'll find displays and demonstrations of traditional country crafts and skills known to our fathers and grandfathers but seldom seen today. There will also be native breeds on show such as Gloucester cattle and Cotswold sheep.

Profits from the fair go to local charities and good causes. This year for every ticket sold online, 25p will be donated to the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC).

Online ticket sales are now closed but tickets are available on the gate - £12 or £3 for five to 12-year-olds. Under 5s are free.
