Whether it’s shopping, shooting or sunshine you’re after this weekend, The Game Fair is certain to deliver.
Starting on Friday 29 July, the three-day event returns to Ragley Hall, and promises to be bigger and better than ever, with well over 100,000 visitors expected in Warwickshire.
As official partner of the event you can experience everything BASC has to offer, including complimentary entry if you are already a member. Click here for full details and make sure you book and download your tickets before midnight on 28 July.
Our main stand can be found at C002 which is just off the Main Arena, opposite the Carter Jonas Theatre, and throughout the weekend you can chat to experts on firearms, gamekeeping, gundogs, moving to non-lead ammunition, practical conservation, deer management, member discounts and much more.
New to the stand for 2022 is an interactive media zone, where you can watch BASC films, listen to the official BASC podcast, flick through a copy of Shooting and Conservation magazine or cast your vote in the Top Shots photography competition.
There are also plenty of chances for you to win some great prizes. Test your knowledge in our sustainable ammunition quiz to be in with the chance of winning a Winchester SX4 semi-automatic shotgun, courtesy of Browning.
We have also teamed up with Tanners Wine, too, giving you the opportunity to land a case of wine just by visiting the five BASC areas across the fair! Simply scan the QR code in each area with your smartphone camera and fill in your details to enter the draw.
Whether you’re a newcomer to shooting or an experienced shot, you’ll find something for everyone on the BASC coaching lines this year.

You will be able to book places for the airgun range, shotgun coaching line and Safe Shot assessments on the day, but there are only a limited number of spaces and it will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Be sure to head down early to bag a slot.
