Wildlife-Fair-at-Stafford-Castle-2016

Shire horse and ponies, sheep dog and ducks, dog agility show and birds of prey; these are just some of the attractions at the Wildlife and Country Fair at Stafford Castle on Sunday 8th May, between 11am and 5pm.

And dog lovers are invited to enter their pets into a dog competition organised by PADS Dog Training. The show is a chance for your pampered pooches to win a prize with awards given for both fun and pedigree classes. Registration starts at 11am.
Mark Hartwell, Heritage Sites Manager for Stafford Borough Council, said:

“In addition to the arena programme visitors can meet the experts from Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, the RSPB, Staffs Bat Group, Staffs Bee Keepers, and many other environmental organisations. Enjoy guided walks along the Woodland Trail and around the Castle. See traditional country craft demonstrations and activities including willow weaving, pole turning, wool spinning, children’s craft workshops and much, much more. And as always there are plenty of activities to keep children entertained.”

He added:

“This year for the first time we have an artist in residence carving the finishing touches on our latest sculpture on the Woodland Trail.”
