Marvel at the beauty of the majestic Birds of Prey at the Falconry Village. They swoop to conquer!
The vibrancy of the The Falconry Village stands out. A multitude of native and worldwide Birds of Prey gathered together, just waiting for their chance to fly!
The village encompasses a flying arena, an indoor training arena, specialised stalls, static displays and resident expert falconers. Falconry is an all important part of all Living Heritage fairs and has been since 1985.
The Falconry Village has two aims; Firstly, to give visitors the thrill of spectacular flying displays, creating memories to last a lifetime!
And secondly, to create a wonderful area where visitors meet the world of falconry, where they can enjoy and explore all aspects of the sport, including health, welfare and legal issues.
The first ever Falconry Village was introduced at the Sandringham Game and Country Fair several years ago and proved an instant success. Now the Falconry Village has grown to become popular with visitors & falconers alike.
