Thousands of countryside enthusisasts are expected to turn out for the Sandringham game and country fair in the grounds of the Royal Estate.

Now in its 11th year, highlights include horse boarding with a team event of man, horse and skate board, being towed around the arena at high speed. There will also be countryside demonstrations of falconry, working ferrets, gundog displays, fishing and working shire horses.

A spokesman for organiser Living Heritage country shows said: 'The world of dogs arena is an ever increasing attraction. Introduced last year it provides a focal point for the dog section of the show.

'Another new arena is the one dedicated to the British Scurry and Trials Driving Five Nations Championship. Teams from England and Wales and an international team will be skilfully competing against the clock in a series of disciplines.'

Other highlights include dog displays (pictured), the chainsaw speed carving arena, and target field sports.

Local and national producers of selected cheese, bakery, cakes, and sausages will be on sale, and there's a piazza for speciality catering.

The event is on tomorrow and Sunday, open daily from 10am to 6pm.
