Camping available for the first time at country fair

Camping will be available for the first time at a fair celebrating countryside traditions and rural life in Norfolk.

Organisers of the Holkham Country Fair are offering camping at the event for the for the first time in its 38 year history.

Visitors can pitch up at Holkham Estate and make the most of the weekend exploring the fair during the day and enjoying a local band in the evening.

The fair takes place on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 July.

Held in the grounds of Holkham Hall, visitors will be camping in acres of grassland and will be only a stone’s throw away from Holkham beach, voted best the best in Great Britain. 

Campers can bring their own tents, caravans, campervans or can hire a luxury bell tent for the family.

Holkham Country Fair was originally set up in 1977 to teach children about the importance of countryside traditions. It takes place every two years at Holkham Estate, near Wells-next-the-Sea in North Norfolk.

The two day event includes over 200 trades, fine food and craft stands showcasing rural crafts and country pursuits. The Grand Ring is set to draw in the crowds with Gulliver’s Carnival professional team of stunt riders showing off their dare-devil Victorian stunts on Spanish horses.

Other activities include:

- Clay pigeon shooting, fishing and target golf
- Traditional fairground rides and classic side stalls straight from the set of ITV’s Downton Abbey
- The British Scurry driving trials and the spectacular Freefall Parachute Display Team

Camping tickets start at £107 per pitch for Friday and Saturday nights and two 2-day adult tickets for the fair.
Online ticket prices are £15 and on-the gate prices are £18.00. Children under 14 go free.
