Families are just weeks away from experiencing the very best of Leicestershire’s countryside at an action-packed event.

Following the success of last year’s event, The Countryside Show returns with a new edition to its line-up with dog agility group, Paws for Thought, which will see pooches entertain crowds by jumping through hoops of fire and performing tricks. 

Beacon Hill Country Park, near Loughborough, is hosting our event which takes place on Bank Holiday Monday, 27 August. 

The show offers a unique line-up balancing the very best of countryside life, a food marketplace where you can taste some of the very best freshly crafted local produce, live music and craft stalls.


We are looking to build on the success of last year’s event when we welcomed more than 5,000 visitors.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming people of all ages to the beautiful setting of Beacon Hill for an even bigger, bank holiday day out.


Demonstrations will be held across the day, with an auction finale for visitors to bid on some of the exhibitors’ show-stopping creations.

The show also welcomes back the Extreme Mountain Bike Show and chainsaw carving alongside a wealth of children’s activities such as tree climbing, Shetland ponies and the climbing wall.

The event will run from 9.30am to 5pm, with tickets available to buy in advance or on the gate.

Early birds tickets with a 30 per cent saving are available online until midday on Saturday, 25 August. These tickets are £8 for adults, £6 for concessions and £24 for a family ticket.

Ticket prices include show entry, children’s activities, car parking and an event programme.
