Our much-loved Countryfile presenters will be taking the stage in our new ‘Countryfile Theatre’. At regular intervals throughout each day, they’ll be sharing their stories of life on set. And at around about tea time, they’ll be put on the spot in our new ‘Who’s a Countryfile Whizz’ Quiz.

Your main entry ticket entitles you to the opportunity to book into one of the Countryfile Theatre shows*. Places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Last year, the presenters’ sessions were packed so we’d recommend booking early. Look out for the release of Countryfile Theatre seats at the end of May.

The Countryfile Close-Up in the Countryfile Theatre
Shows will run at the following times each day.
Please see the timetable at the bottom of this page for full schedule.
11:15-11:45
12:45-13:15
14:15-14:45 
15:45-16:15

Join the Countryfile presenters for a spectacular family feel good show, where you’ll get unprecedented access behind the Countryfile scenes. There’ll be plenty of surprises along the way; from acrobats to animal antics.

This is a shared celebration of the best of Countryfile. Over the four-day show, Matt, John, Adam, Ellie, Anita and Tom will take to the stage at the Countryfile Theatre to share their memories and passion for the nation’s favourite programme. Which places are closest to their hearts? Who are the characters (two legs or four) that have left a lasting impression?  What’s the most remarkable story they’ve ever heard? The most hair-raising challenge? The funniest moment? And what’s it like to be on screen - and on location - week in, week out, come rain or shine?

The Countryfile presenters will reveal the answers to these questions and many more at the Countryfile Close Up shows. Seats are limited so booking is essential for all Countryfile fans. Look out for the ticket release in May. 

This is not to be missed! You'll feel as though you’ve seen Countryfile from the inside and got to know your favourite presenters just that little bit better.

The Who's a Countryside Whizz? Quiz
17:00 – 17:30 each day

See the Countryfile team pitted against each other in a fun, quick-fire contest of memory and know-how. Your TV favourites are on stage for this family-friendly quiz and put to the test on all things rural from British birds to farmyard beasts. There will even be a few tricky questions about Countryfile! 

But they'll need your help to be crowned winners so brush-up on your countryside knowledge and get ready to join in. Along the way there'll be some furry and feathered friends, plenty of laughs, and lots to learn. 

It’s the only place you’ll see all of the Countryfile team in one place during the day - and you’ll find out just how competitive they really are.

*National Trust members who have booked their entrance ticket using the National Trust member promotion can purchase a seat in the Countryfile Theatre for £5. Seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
