the East Anglian Game & Country Fair

The East Anglian Game & Country Fair will take place on 23-24 April at the prestigious Euston Estate, just off the A11 at Elveden, home to The Duke & Duchess of Grafton.

The Fair hosts world-class events and attractions and this year the Main Arena displays will include the World Famous JCB Dancing Digger Team, who wow crowds with their unusual and spectacular display. Plus, returning due to popular demand, are the Horseboarding UK Championships where speed, agility and bravery are all required! Audience participation is encouraged to spur on the competitors, and it provides great entertainment for all the family.
