The countryside comes to town!
This family friendly event, bringing the countryside into London, has something for all ages and all interests.
The weekend is packed full of arena displays, falconry, sheep dogs and ferret racing and the infamous dancing sheep show. There’s also a range of traditional countryside activities to come and try including willow weaving and wood turning or if you just want to watch, you can marvel at the blacksmith demonstrating his trade.
There’s animals galore too! From the more traditional farm animals of sheep, goats, ponies and calves, we’ve also got some smaller animals for you to have a hold of including rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises. We’ve got some shy and unusual visitors including bats and otters and some critters from foreign places too!
The whole family can get busy with a range of activities including flower pot animal making, apple pressing, bushcraft demonstrations, planting tree seeds and identifying minibeasts.
Make sure you pop into see many of the local wildlife groups and organisations who can tell you all about their work in and around the Lee Valley.
If you need to take a break, then why not grab something to eat from our onsite caterers and pull up a straw bale for a well deserved rest.
Nearly all of the activities are free, but there is a small charge for a couple of them.
Please see our ‘How to find us’ page for directions and transport links. There is limited parking on site so why not jump on the bus or your bike to come and see us.
Please note it is cash-only entry. There are no cash points on site or in the immediate vicinity.
We look forward to seeing you when the countryside comes to town!
