Come and see us at BBC Countryfile Live

Visitors enjoying BBC Countryfile Live in 2016

BBC Countryfile Live returns to Blenheim Palace for a second year on 3-6 August, and we’ll be at the heart of the celebrations.

We’ll be hosting exciting, stimulating events and fun activities for everyone in the National Trust Acre.

Topical conversations about caring for our countryside will take place with special guests at the National Trust Theatre. Foodies can sample and buy from our tenant producers and watch TV chefs on the Farmyard Cookery Theatre. Families can have a mini adventure in the magical 50 things Woodland play area. Or you can simply take time out to unwind in our South Downs landscape experience.

National Trust Theatre

We’ll be hosting a full programme of debates, talks and interviews with high profile nature experts, farmers and other non-governmental organisations in the National Trust Theatre.

Farmyard Cookery Theatre

Join us at the Farmyard Cookery Theatre to pick up some top tips on cooking, baking and drinks pairings, all created with seasonal ingredients produced by our tenant farmers.

Or come and see demonstrations by Britain’s best-loved chefs, including Elly Pear, Marcus Bean, Claire Thomson and Bake-Off’s Holly Bell.

Fun for kids of all ages

Den building, tree climbing, wild camping… No celebration of the countryside would be complete without the kids getting a few ticks on their list of 50 things to do before you’re 11¾. Join us in the 50 things woodland where you may even bump into Ray Mears, Michaela Strachan, or one of our other guest speakers as they get involved. 

Explore the South Country

Discover why we’ve transformed the landscape with artists RED EARTH to create ‘The South Country’. With three immersive installations evoking the sights and sounds of the South Downs, you can experience, explore and connect with places cared for by the National Trust.

Other highlights

Visitors will be able to watch an exclusive Countryfile Live stage show, meet rare breeds at Adam Henson’s farm, shop from hundreds of exhibitors and much more.
