THE HILLS around East Meon will come alive with the sound of bugles and gunfire this Sunday in a show that celebrates the best of rural life.

The Hampshire Country Sports Day is a show that celebrates our rural landscape and the people and animals who work and live in it.

The annual event in the grounds of the Bereleigh Estate will showcase rural sports with gundog and fishing demonstrations, hound parades, falconry and more. Visitors can also try their hand at clay shooting, archery, target shooting and fishing or peruse more than 100 trade stands.

There will also be various dog shows, street food and a licensed bar offering Bowman Ales and Meon cider on tap.

Tickets are £15 on the door of £13 in advance from free entry for under-16s.
