Fiery Jack’s Amazing Games Emporium
Come and play games of all types from down the ages in Fiery Jack’s amazing Games Emporium: from Roman to Victorian, it’s a great place to step out of the hustle and bustle of the show and challenge your friends – or children – to a game of giant quoits, or Jenga, or something less well known. Read about the history and learn from experienced jesters! Fun for the young and the young at heart.
Fiery Jack’s Amazing Games Emporium will be at all shows except Thoresby in 2017
Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs. You would think they might have learnt that the wolf is always behind them! Fantastic puppet displays from a master entertainer. You cannot help but be drawn into the fun – especially if you have children with you!
Pinxton Puppets will be at all our shows in 2017
Make and Take
It’s fun time for kids! Their chance to make a face and throw a pot without getting into trouble!
Children love the Make and Take stand were they can do a variety of activities and make something to take home and treasure. From paint a pot and sand art to making a necklace !
The pots supplied are already fired, so children can just decorate them to their own taste. Pots are decorated using vibrant colours. Tiles are provided too and they are air dried clay tiles 15 x15cm. The tiles are decorated using a variety of impress stanps and stencils and dry at home over 2 days, having been painted using acrylics or poster colours. The final step of varnishing uses a mixture of PVA glue (50%) and water (50%). The finished tiles can be framed
They can make necklaces as well using large ceramic beads which are decorated with vibrant acrylic markers. The beads are threaded together on brightly coloured elastic.
Children can learn how to throw a pot and then make a pot on the pottery wheel as well. A great favourite!
Other craft workshops include: sand art, card making and candle making.
Craft activities at each show – will vary
Fiery Jack the Juggler
Watch out for Fiery Jack as you wander the show ground. He’s hard to miss, usually either ten foot tall, or rowing slowly along in his leaky boat. Often known to stop and put on an improptu performance for anyone in the area, he’s great fun to watch but does have an exceptionally disobedient hat!

If you have been to any of our Country Shows before, you may well have met Hektor, our big yellow dog. He wanders the show, delighted to meet everyone, and enjoys high-fiving anyone who will. If you’re lucky, he may even show you his dancing moves… Please keep an eye on him though – he does tend to get into trouble!
Hektor will be at all shows in 2017
