BBC Countryfile Live is deserting its old home at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire - for a move to Windsor Great Park.

The lavish four day show inspired by the long running BBC series has attracted more than 40,000 during the four years it has been based in Oxfordshire.

Event director Tim Etchells said: "We felt the time was right to move to a new venue where we can continue to build on the show and attract new audiences to join our loyal Oxfordshire visitors who have joined us each year. We are very excited about our move to Windsor Great Park and its spectacular parkland setting.”

Countryfile Live is a celebration of all aspects of the British countryside and the event embodies this with four days of live arena shows, debates, food, drink, farm animal demonstrations and shopping from over 500 independent retailers and lifestyle brands.

When it comes to Windsor next year it will see the return of many of the familiar features of Countryfile Live, including the Farmyard, the Wildlife Zone, the Countryfile Kitchen, The Craven Arms Pub Garden, the Village Green, the Dog Lovers’ Arena and features exploring the stunning grounds of Windsor Great Park.

Mat Way, Global Director, Live Entertainment at BBC Studios said: "Oxfordshire has been a brilliant home for the event, with local producers, exhibitors and contractors all contributing to the quality of the overall experience. For its fifth year, we have a great opportunity to open at Windsor Great Park, and we look forward to seeing Countryfile Live in a brand new location."

The first show at Windsor Great Park will run from August 20 to 23.
