South Manchester Angling Club – The Original will be in attendance yet again with a stall in the Angling tent that is located next to the estate lake. All members and families are invited to attend. This is not just an Angling event it should be looked at as a day out for all the family. Support your club!


Something for everyone:

Established in 1984, The Cheshire Game and Angling fair is one of the North West best yearly outdoor shows. The Cheshire Game & Angling Fair is located at Peover Hall, Knutsford on the A50 - Postcode WA16 9HW.


  • There's something for everyone involved or interested in Game, Angling, Equestrian, Dogs and much more.

 • Even for those not involved it is a fantastic day out for the whole family.

 • We have so much to show you in all of the areas and in the main arena and we hope to see you on the day.

 • This is your opportunity to see what else goes on in the Cheshire countryside.  



Since the show began in 1984 the iconic Cheshire Game & Angling Fair has grown to become the premier family attraction across the Cheshire County. Hosted in the stunning grounds of Peover Hall Knutsford overlooking the postcard backdrop of the beautiful Cheshire countryside, new and returning visitors to the annual event can expect an action packed, family-friendly show that will have something to offer the whole family to enjoy.


As always, the all day action packed Main Ring entertainment will have a great line-up this year. Attractions include welcoming back security dog, falconry, Ferret World & Cyril The Squirrel along with exhibitions from the vintage engine, angling and the Newfoundland Rescue. We also have all the regular attractions that the shows been built on over the years like the countryside area along with some new additions like the Fun Dog Show & others which will be announced in the coming weeks. We will also be welcoming back many competition classes including Terrier & Lurcher, Farrier competition Gun Dog Scurry and Clay Pigeon & Starshot which will be open to everybody in attendance and with trade stands now almost full, there will be countless opportunities for visitors to try, buy and sample just about everything county.


The Cheshire Game & Angling Fair is the largest one day event in the area which continues to draw record crowds’ year upon year so visitors can expect an exceptional, family fun day out.

Members should have been aware South Manchester Angling Club was going to attend this yearly event again this year. Sadly once again most if not all of the club’s membership for whatever reason do not feel they should attend to support their club.  It would have been encouraging to see at least one or two showing an interest after those manning the stand got up at the crack of dawn knowing they had to erect the stand then dress it with materials to attract visitors.  


The preparation and production of materials took an awful lot of time to produce in sufficient quantities for the day, that included club information handouts, membership application forms, special membership offer handouts and lots of posters to display on the stand.


The manning of the stand this year was done only by Neil Bowden & Paul Hindley two committee members, this after those who normally attend and operate the stand were not available for various reasons. For instance, I was recovering from hip replacement surgery, Bruce your chairman had commitments he was not able postpone and the other regular Paul Jackson was also not available because of serious health issues.


Neil & Paul both agreed the day was very successful with lots of people very interested in what the club had to offer including a good number who signed up as new members who will I am sure enjoy the clubs fisheries.


I trust after reading this many more members will consider attending next year to offer their support to what is a very important event in many ways for the club.
