Great New Show For 2013!02/01/2013
We are pleased to be the first to break the news of a fantastic new show for next year.
THE LONGLEAT FISHING AND COUNTRY SHOW will be held at Longleat Estate, near Warminster in Wiltshire on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th June 2013.
At Hardy & Greys we have all felt for some time that the south of England was sadly neglected on the show front with almost all of the big fairs being midlands-based, so news of a really big show south of the M4 corridor is music to our ears. Couple that with the prestige venue of Longleat, one the top country estates in England, throw in fabulous grounds with a series of fishing lakes and an existing road network that negates any worries over bad weather, and you have the perfect recipe for a top event.
The new show will comprise all angling disciplines with separate areas for coarse, carp and game fishing. There will be a particular emphasis on attracting youngsters and new anglers to the sport with tutorials, demonstrations and a great team of experts on hand to answer any enquiries. It will be a very 'hands on' event with visitors of all ages being encouraged to have a go and sample the delights of fishing. Hardy & Greys will be there of course, showing all our products and advice centre.
This will also be a show for all the family. There will be a food village where local and national producers will be sampling their wares, plus a 4x4 off road area where you can try your hand at some mud-plugging. There will be a whole variety of quality food and drink franchises to tempt your palate and if this wasn't enough you can also investigate the regular Longleat delights of the safari park, the house, the falconry centre and much more.
Access and Parking at Longleat is very easy and there will be a caravan and camping area on site, with all the facilities you'd expect from a top class event
We'll be giving you more information nearer the time, but for now just make sure that you put the event in your new diary. The 14th and 15th of June 2013 will be a date that you won't want to miss!
