Mums and dads, who are stuck for something to do with the kids over the May Day bank holiday weekend, can take them for a free day out at the BASC Northern Ireland Game Fair at Ballywalter Park on 2-3 May.
Kids under 16 get into the game fair for free and there will be plenty to keep them entertained including laser clay shooting, air rifle stands, bouncy castles, quads archery and an adventure play area.
Mums and dads, who can get 25% off their tickets by calling BASC NI in advance on 028 9260 5050, can take time to browse a wide range of stalls for clothing and equipment bargains or sample the delights in the fine food hall including speciality coffees, breads, French chocolates, smoothies, crepes, ice-cream and more.
There will also be a packed main arena programme with demonstrations from John Carmichael and his team from the Northern Ireland School of Falconry, the ‘Ultimate Countryman’ Chris Green and sheepdog trialling with Eric Barfoot and his team of young handlers. Other events over the two day game fair include game cookery demonstrations with top chef Derek Patterson, working dog scurries, fly fishing tuition, clay shooting competitions, a team chase and international mounted games.
