The event, which began in 2004, also offers children's activities, a traditional fun fair, a food hall with the Game Fair Country Kitchen and craft and gift marquees. 

Event director Andy Grand said although they returned following Covid in September last year, the 2022 event felt "more normal" in comparison.
