In our largest arena of Thame Country Fair, the Andy Singleton Arena, we have space for some of our main attractions.
Stannage Stunt Display Team
Motorbikes and fire and big heights and all sorts of scary stuff to make you go ‘Ooooh’! You really don’t want to miss the amazing Mark Stannage and his main stage display!
Our horse boarders will be on their second heat of the 2017 championships. An exciting extreme sport, where a boarder is pulled at speeds of up to 28mph around a series of obstacles by a galloping horse. Sounds crazy? It may be – but it’s also incredibly skilful and great fun to watch. We have both Elite and Intermediate heats in the Andy Singleton Arena (Novice in the Countryside Arena) Expect thrills and spills and plenty of flying mud!
Scurry Trials and Driving
In their second heat of the British Championships; these teams of ponies with their skilled drivers work their way around an arena full of obstacles in the fastest possible time.
Shadowquest Dog Display Team
A stunning display with these fabulous working dogs. Watch the abseiling spaniel, the search and find dogs, the security dogs and the amazing fiery climax. Not to be missed!
Machine Vs Beast
Also with a chosen scurry team; we pit the skill and dexterity of these little ponies against the might of a 4×4 Isuzu vehicle under the expert handler
of Jeremy – a test driver and racing driver. Horsepower v Pony power – who will you be cheering for?
Don’t forget to visit the Isuzu stand! Isuzu are one of the main sponsors of Living Heritage Country Shows.
Watch these stunning birds of prey as they swoop and soar above the Andy Singleton Arena. Handled by some of the UK’s top falconers, Chris Neal, Ray Pickup and the team from the Falconry Centre. You will learn how they are flown, how they are used in pest control and sport, and you may even have the opportunity to come into the arena and fly one yourself.
Again, you are welcome to meet the birds afterwards in the designated Falconry Marquee.
