We’re back at Blenheim Palace this August, as BBC Countryfile Live returns to the Oxfordshire countryside for a second year.

Tickets have already gone on sale for the event, which brings together the very best of the British countryside. Countryfile Live will run from 3 – 6 August at Oxfordshire’s Blenheim Palace.

Presenters from the BBC hit series Countryfile will lead four days of live arena shows, hands-on activities, animal displays, debates, food, drink and shopping from over 500 independent retailers and lifestyle brands.  

The National Trust will be back at Countryfile Live, with more cookery shows, countryside debates and outdoor family adventures. 

Earlier this week BBC star and farmer Adam Henson joined pupils from Woodstock Primary School to launch this year’s festival – alongside six newborn Blenheim Palace lambs.

Countryfile Live fans can follow the lambs via social media @CountryfileLive #CFLIVELambs. The lambs were amongst the first born at Blenheim Palace this year, and will be on show at the Passion for British Livestock area at this year’s event.

Adam Henson said: 'I'm so excited to be back for a second helping of Countryfile Live, especially after the success of last year’s event. 

'I can’t wait to see the thousands of people flock through the gates to celebrate everything that there is to cherish about the great British countryside.'

Last year’s event saw 125,000 people head to Blenheim Palace, the childhood home of wartime prime minister Winston Churchill. Countryfile Live is set to be 2017's event of the summer.
