BBC Countryfile Live is back! – 3rd – 6th August

BBC Countryfile Live is BACK at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, for its second year! The Countryfile presenters are bringing you the best of the British countryside, set in the picturesque grounds of Blenheim Palace.

The event is set to be a hit with the whole family (including the dog!), with a host of exciting new attractions for 2017. Countryfile Live is set to be four days of live arena shows, hands-on activities, animal displays, debates, food, drink and shopping from over 500 independent retailers and lifestyle brands. The show brings together everything there is to cherish about the British countryside, including:

Central Ring: Watch working animals show off their skills

Farming in Action Area: See the journey produce takes from field to fork and learn more about our fragile food chain

National Trust Theatre: debates, talks and interviews will be led by farmers, environmentalists, commentators and outdoor enthusiasts

The Big Barn: Pull up a hay bale and listen to stories and interviews, and watch demonstrations from your favourite TV personalities and authors, wildlife experts, environmental commentators and leaders, countryside enthusiasts, and foraging and food experts.

Adam Henson’s Farm: Meet some of the friendliest and rarest animals you’ll know from the programme, and learn more about how farmers care for their livestock

The Village Green: The ultimate setting for family entertainment, complete with bandstand and traditional maypole

The Craven Arms: Order your cool beers, cider or ginger beer. There’s plenty of room in the pub garden too – a fine spot to meet up for lunch, with a great summer food menu to choose from.

With on-site camping available, Countryfile lovers can even make a weekend out of what will be one of the biggest, and most exciting, outdoor events this year, an experience that the whole family – and their dog – can enjoy.

The event is sponsored by investment management firm Quilter Cheviot and is being staged in association with the National Trust.
