The East Anglian Game and Country Fair – The Norfok Showground, Norwich. 23rd & 24th April 2016

EAGCF 2016Yesterday I attended the The East Anglian Game and Country Fair at the Norfolk Showground, Norwich. The event is also on today – Sunday 24th April –  gates open at 8am and the event finishes at 6pm.

I was gifted my ticket by the event company behind the fair. I said I would go and visit the event and feature it on my blog. Thanks for the ticket 😀

I had a great day out and enjoyed walking around the fair. It was a lovely day and the weather was completely mixed up – as always! There was sun, rain and even hailstones! Thankfully It didn’t stop everyone enjoying themselves though

Dogs on leads are welcome. It was lovely to see so many pet owners had taken their dogs along to the show yesterday. It was great to to see people out and about enjoying the day with their whole family…dog included! 🙂 

The event offers free parking which is always a very welcome bonus at these kind of day events, There are lots of helpful parking stewards in yellow high-viz jackets telling you where to park your car.

east 2 edenI loved visiting the different marquees and trade stands to see which exhibitors were at the event and there was a real mixture of exhibitors. There were country clothing stalls such as Joules, footwear stalls such as Heavenly Feet, pet care/food stalls such as Ruff and Tumble Dog Coats, Gift & Homeware stalls such as East 2 Eden and so many more stands.

My personal favourite being the Food stands. Yum! There is a whole marquee dedicated to food exhibitors and there was lots of different options for food to buy for your dinner. I opted for Gourmet Farm who had a stand outside in the grounds of the event. I bought an Aberdeen Angus burger with cheese, fried onions, coleslaw and salad for £4.50 and it was delicious! I recommend them to you 🙂

blacks cheeseIn the food marquee I stopped by the Blacks Cheese stand and tried a nibble of their wonderful cheeses. We had chatted on twitter prior to the event and I had said I would head on over to their stand to see what their cheese was like. I introduced myself and tried their cheeses. I thought the Caramelised Onion & Rioja cheese was so nice! I decided to buy the cheese truckle but the man who was managing the stand, Chris, kindly gifted it to me along with a truckle of Mature Cheddar cheese (The review of these cheeses will be published in a post at a later date). Thank you so much Chris!

lime tree pantry foodsI also stopped by the Limetree Pantry Foods stall and it looked great with all the pies and cakes set out so I thought I would take a photo to share with you all.

I treated myself to a slice of Mars Bar cake from The Rosebud Bakery and it was so tasty! It was £2.50 for a huge slice and the cupcakes were just £1.50. There were so many different cakes to choose from and they all looked amazing!

Things such as chainsaw carving by ‘Norfolk Sculptor‘ Shaun Gilbert, Stuart Barnes Sheep Dog & Duck Display, The Royal Signals White Helmets and Savage Skills.

Make sure to get to the displays early so you can get a good view and hopefully bag yourself a seat to sit on.
