This is my first year directing the Chatsworth Country Fair and I have to say, so far, the experience has been wonderful. It has been fantastic living in the park on the banks of the river Derwent, pegging out the entire show ground, with a little help from previous Country Fair Organiser Christopher Lloyd Owen. When I arrived two weeks ago the park was clear, open countryside and looked very different from the village of arenas, marquees and trade stands that have been built ready for Friday.

The weather has been very kind so far, and the forecast is promising for the weekend, so it is looking like it will be wonderful conditions all round. It is also very hopeful the balloons will be able to take off as scheduled! We hope to see you all at the Country Fair at some point over the weekend.
