The cornerstone to Simon's way of life is education. Education about what he does, why he does it and how he does it. This ethos has taken Simon Whitehead's Pakefield Ferrets across the UK from education days to game fairs, country fêtes to open and corporate days. Whatever the event,  Simon Whitehead and his Pakefield Ferrets are seen across the length and breadth of the UK during the Spring and Summer show season. I can demonstrate in the arena or supply my own arena and PA system to fit in with the organnisers needs and requirements.

Simon Whitehead, a unique character it has to be said, displays and demonstrates in a very unique manner that has to be seen to be believed. Educational, amusing and entertaining are just a few descriptions to describe how Simon poetically sells the virtues of ferrets and ferreting to the world.

Having demonstrated at events consisting of all of the major UK events right down to a intimate local village fetes, Simon's arena demonstrations are ranked amongst the most entertaining and popular on the UK show circuit. Displays that are constantly evolving. Simon has now incorporated his lurchers into his act taking the already popular demonstration to a new level.

Thirty minutes of educational and  amusing entertaining action packed unscripted drama that blossoms as he regales the ferrets journey through the passage of time. Often copied but never bettered, Simon backs up the provenance of his show by earning his living not only “rabbiting” but writing, filming and acting as a consultant to media and production companies. All of these aspects of ferrets and ferreting combine to make a package that makes it an unequalled demonstration amongst the arena acts across the UK. Simon definitely puts the “ferret” back into ferreting.

In-between their arena demonstrations, Simon, his ferrets and dogs are on hand to talk and interact with the public, answering many questions and dispelling many old wives tales about ferrets and ferreting. However popular the arena demonstrations are, the static display is always a hive of activity as they are many questions to be answered, ferrets to be held and stories to be told.

As ferreting is normally carried out in unsociable surroundings and often in solitude, Simon makes full use of the arena demonstration and static display to explain and illustrate why ferreting is fast becoming a more sought after pastime in the countryside and towns of the UK.

The ferreter is the epitome of the organic and environmentally friendly hunter/gatherer and as such continues to educate about the merits of rabbit as a  first class organic, free range meat for the table.

A raconteur of some repute, Simon can display, demonstrate and educate his traditional craft that has not only survived the growth in technology but prospered, illustrating why the Pakefield Ferrets motto of "ensuring the tradition of ferreting IS continued for further generations" is long remembered after the final curtain.
