New investors have secured the future of the 58th Game Fair which will now return to Ragley Hall in Warwickshire from 29 - 31 July 2016. The popular Game Fair will also return in 2018 for its special 60th anniversary. This will be the third time Ragley Hall has hosted the event which is expected to attract more than 100,000 visitors.
An expansive overhaul is planned to ensure The Game Fair moves forward in the right direction, giving visitors, exhibitors, organisations and partners the opportunity to continue to be part of the annual countryside event in a way which enhances their business and experiences.
New affordable pricing structures for visitor tickets and exhibitor stands will be announced in due course, along with new memberships, VIP options, camping and hospitality enabling all to enjoy the event in their own way.
The Game Fair will focus on its traditional rural roots, field sports, farming and the countryside ensuring the key elements of the historic event will be in abundance, whilst offering a fresh approach concentrating on visitor experiences. With all The Game Fair team expertise joined by selected new personnel bringing a wealth of experience, the event will offer quality, tradition and the all-important social aspects, all delivered professionally.
The Game Fair's Event Director, Tony Wall said "Following the news the CLA announced last month, we are all, as a team, delighted to be part of the continuation of The Game Fair, and keeping it on the original dates planned at Ragley is fantastic! The continued encouragement from sponsors, industry stakeholders and the shooting community has been overwhelming to continue this countryside institution. We look forward to seeing everyone come together to show their support for this incredible and historic event".
Harry Hertford, the 9th Marquess of Hertford and owner of Ragley Hall said "It is magnificent that this important event now has a clear way forward and we are of course delighted to be hosting the event again. We look forward to welcoming the crowds and to being part of creating a wonderful day out".
