The 'NEW' Game Fair Theatre

The 'NEW' Game Fair Theatre

It's not all pizzazz and spectacle in the Game Fair Theatre this year. Every day kicks off with a serious one-hour debate, starting at 10am, with panels talking about the rural issues of the moment.
 
Day#1, Friday 28 July: Breakfast means Breakfast. Politicians and pundits discuss whether a post-Brexit Government should repeal the 1981 Wildlife & Countryside Act. It's the iconic environmentalists' act - the first European Directive to become law in the UK - but does it pull its weight in 2017? And what could replace it?
 
Day#2, Saturday 29 July: Working countryside vs Tellytubby Land. What is the BBC's problem with Field Sports? our national broadcaster paints a picture of a countryside where shooting and hunting sports are controversial instead of enjoyable. Broadcasters get together to discuss how this has happened and what can we do about it.
 
Day#3, Sunday 30 July: Nicola's hatred of heather.  Why does Nicola Sturgeon hate the Scottish countryside? Taxing shoots, annihilating deer, licensing airguns and banning visiting shooters - the SNP hates what goes on outside Edinburgh and Glasgow, and wants to stop it. We bring together a panel of Scottish politicians, including the SNP, and rural heroes to discuss how the SNP can recapture hearts and minds in the Highlands. Could such an attitude come to Westminster?
