Enjoy this summer’s best day out at Countryfile Live

The presenters of BBC Countryfile


Countryfile Live 2018 takes places at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, between 2–5 August, and is jam-packed with amazing talks, stalls, activities and arenas.

Wildlife lovers can explore a pop-up nature reserve in the Wildlife Zone, organised by the local Wildlife Trust, where they can have a go at pond dipping, listen to talks from experts, learn about wildlife gardening and much more.

The National Trust’s ‘50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾’ will be returning to Countryfile Live with outdoor activities for children.

BBC Wildlife will be there too! Come and meet members of the team at our stall (by the Village Green), find out about the UK’s best-selling natural history magazine, and take advantage of our subscription offer.

Make sure you also visit the BBC Countryfile Magazine stall too – our sister magazine and the official magazine of the event.

Alongside the wildlife activities and talks – including talks by BBC Wildlife contributors such as Mike Dilger and David Lindo, there are plenty of shopping opportunities, the chance to listen to new music, and a number of arenas, including Equine, Dog Lovers’ and Farming in Action.

The organisers of Countryfile Live have announced that there will be two events in 2019 – one on 3–5 August at Blenheim Palace and another on 15–18 August at Castle Howard, Yorkshire. Click here to find out more.
