Each year, the Countryside Alliance‘s hunting newcomers’ week provides the ideal opportunity for those new to the sport to have a go. Newcomers’ week runs from 21-28 October this year with hunts from around the country putting on special meets and events to encourage people to get involved.

Last year, the week introduced hundreds of new people to trail hunting and hunting under the Act. Those hunts taking part are listed below.
