The 2017 Game Fair takes place at Hatfield House in July, and Country Life will be there.

As the largest outdoor countryside-themed event in the world, The Game Fair is expected to attract around 120,000 visitors and 1,000 exhibitors at the beautiful Hatfield House in Hertfordshire across three days from Friday 28 to Sunday 30 July.
