Fluffy Retreat attend events throughout the year from school and village fetes, to steam rallies and country shows. We mainly attend events in Wiltshire, BANES, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and South Wales (but please ask if you would like us to attend an event elsewhere). We offer ferret racing with prize betting along with the opportunity to handle the ferrets. We also have a fundraising stall which usually consists of a tombola, craft items and also ferret related goods.
Ideally we require a flat pitch size of 8m x 8m to accommodate the stall and space for spectators but it is possible to adapt this to meet the needs of the event organisers. We provide all the equipment we need for the event, including a marquee, fencing, the race track and a pa system. We also need to keep one support vehicle on site behind the marquee. A smaller stall without the racing is available if this is more appropriate. We are covered by our own Public Liability Insurance.
Ferret races are run every 30 minutes during the event and betting is done by way of numbered, coloured tickets which correspond with the race pipes. Betting is £1 for adults to win a bottle of Fursty Ferret beer and 50p for children to win a keyring with the photo of the winning ferret on. We encourage plenty of audience participation by way of the crowd cheering the ferrets on during the race. In between races we are available to let the public meet and handle the ferrets and to answer any questions people may have.
