Animals steal the show at Bedfont Lakes Country Fair

Thousands of people had a fun day out in Bedfont with highlights including performance dressage, falconry and circus tricks

Thousands of people swarmed onto the fields of Bedfont Lakes Country Park in celebration of Love Parks Week.

More than 3,000 children and adults enjoyed a fun-filled day of animal encounters and shows on Sunday (August 28), as well as an open air screening of Disney's Zootropolis, at the Our Parks Presents: Country Fair in Feltham .

A special celebrity appearance from beautiful black stallion Lan Coronel, horse of Jonathan Marshall, who starred in Game of Thrones and in new blockbuster Ben Hur, stole the show in a classical dressage performance while falcons flew around at over 100mph and right through the horse's legs.

Daredevil dogs from The Rockwood Dog display team were seen jumping through flaming hoops and Mayor of Hounslow Ajmer Grewal, along with her husband, Councillor Pritam Grewal, also got up close to the creepy and cuddly inhabitants of Bedfont Lakes.

Other attractions included the Bezerkaz Circus which entertained the crowds with stilt walkers, circus workshops and giant bubbles.

The Feltham History Society tent was inundated with people keen to discover information about Bedfont and Feltham's past, while Hounslow Libraries put on storytelling tales on looking after the environment.
