The Lancashire Game and Country Festival

  • Woodacre Lodge Farm Scorton PR3 1BN (map)

For the second time, a festival celebrating Lancashire's rural culture, countryside and particularly its vibrant game shooting heritage is being held at the Scorton show ground on the 10th and 11th September. It has been impressively well organised and once again The Cartford Inn will be one of the headline exhibitors along with our butchers Honeywell’s, who supply us with lots of the outstanding, locally shot game we serve throughout the season.

Focussing on local game and country customs and building on the success of last year's show, the event will feature gun dog shows, shooting exhibitions, dressage, falconry and fishing. Food and drink will also feature prominently and there will be lots of regional producers showcasing in the food hall along with stalls selling hot and cold food.

In collaboration with Honeywell’s we are excited to be producing the festival’s ‘Food Theatre’ again, where each day you will be able to see both ourselves and Honeywell’s demonstrating how best to prepare and cook locally shot game. So expect interesting and informative talks from the highly skilled and knowledgeable purveyors from Honeywell’s butchers and plenty of ideas and recipes for cooking game from us.
