Beeston Castle and Woodland Park will be holding an Autumn Fair over the weekend of the 5-6 October, from 11am to 4 pm each day. In its fifth year, the fair will celebrate all things autumnal. Visitors will be able to watch falconry displays, play games, listen to music and join in on a foraging walk as well as exploring the castle's 4000 year history. Included again this year is the favourite of visitors, the annual Dog Show. Animal lovers are invited to bring their pooches to take part in a dog show which sees the best of the regions canine friends being judged for Waggiest Tail, Cleverest Canine, Scruffiest Dog, Golden Oldie and Cutest Puppy!
The fair will be opened by musician Wyndebagge who present seasonal sounds with an array of instruments and quirky anecdotes.
The foraging walks, run by Totally Wild UK, scours the area for wild delicacies teaching followers how to safely identify plants which are then cooked afterwards.
Visitors can learn about local wildlife with the Cheshire Wildlife Trust and have a go at den building. Experts in historic falconry will demonstrate spectacular displays how birds where used to hunt.
Ella Harrison, Events Manager at English Heritage commented : 'As the leaves in Beeston Castle's forty acre woodland park begin to turn to golden brown, we're celebrating with our two day autumn fair. There couldn't be a better time to visit the castle, with music, foraging, falconry and more. Four legged friends are especially welcome for our dog shows on Saturday and Sunday.'
