THE Green Fayre will return this weekend with thousands of people expected to flock to the two-day event.
Taking place on July 23 and 24, the Green Fayre is a celebration of the countryside and countryside living.
Held at Beacon Country Park in Up Holland, there will be shows and displays showcasing the activities and heritage the Lancashire countryside has to offer.
The heart of the Green Fayre is the working woodlands where local craft folk demonstrate a wide range of traditional skills and techniques, working natural materials into products and goods that people use in day-to-day life.
There will be a range of wildlife and animal welfare charities and organisations giving tips on how you can help look after animals both at home and in the wild, as well as demonstrating dog agility skills and the majesty of birds of prey.
Residents will be able to visit the living history Viking encampment and wander through the tented village to find out more about how day-to-day Viking life used to be, then watch as the resident Vikings battle in the show's arena.
Councillor Carl Coughlan, cabinet member for leisure is looking forward to the event: “After two years without this incredible event, I’m delighted it’s back. It’s one of the best countryside shows around and always a really enjoyable weekend, packed with fun, food and fascinating displays and exhibitions.
As well as all the crafts and exhibits there will be a full range of adventurous activities for people to try, such as: climbing; abseiling; paintballing; archery and bushcrafts as well as bouncy castles; trampolines; donkey rides and traditional funfair rides.
This year’s show will also include a range of music, dance, art and outdoor theatre displays to bring the show alive with creativity.
There will also be a wide range of stalls selling all kinds of tasty treats!
Well-behaved dogs are welcome as long as they are kept under close control.
