Organisers of The Game Fair 2017 are offering BASC members complimentary entry to the event, which will take place at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire 28-30 July

Organisers of The Game Fair 2017 are offering BASC members complimentary entry to the event, which will take place at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire between Friday 28 and Sunday 30 July.

To gain complimentary admission, BASC members simply need to produce their current membership card, along with photo ID, such as a shotgun or firearms certificate, driving licence or passport.

James Gower, managing director of The Game Fair, said: “The complimentary offer is open to BASC members on each and every day of The Game Fair, so a member can visit on all three days if they wish. BASC is the UK’s largest shooting organisation, so this offer has the potential to attract record numbers of visitors to the event. We are excited that in 2017 The Game Fair will be bigger and better than ever, with a focus on shooting’s positive role in the countryside.

“As the new custodians of The Game Fair, we are keen to see the much-loved event reconnect with its core audience. The gun trade told us they wanted more people who shoot at the event, so we acted. Plus, we were keen to not only give something back to our loyal supporters but also entice new visitors.”

BASC’s chairman Peter Glenser said: “BASC is thrilled that the organisers of The Game Fair are providing this offer to our members. I hope that as many BASC members as possible will take advantage of the complimentary entry to the event to make this a great celebration of all country sports.”
