Picnic on the Village Green sponsored by O2
At the heart of the showground and close to the entrance is the Countryfile Village Green. Here you can spread out your picnic blanket, catch up with friends and enjoy some traditional country entertainment.
Morris Dancers will be shaking their bells and kerchiefs across the four days and Maypole dancers will be tying themselves up in giant knots. Join The Croquet Association as they help you play this traditional country game, plus there will be a good old-fashioned band stand playing your favourite tunes. Meet Pudsey Bear and take part in Children in Need storytelling and more.
