Motorhomers welcome at Holkham Country Fair
For the first time, motorhomers will be welcomed at this year’s Holkham Country Fair where they can pitch up on grassland nearby.
The camping facilities mean that visitors can make the most of the weekend, exploring the fair during the day and enjoying a local band in the evening. Held in the grounds of Holkham Hall, visitors will be camping in acres of grassland and will be only a stone throws’ away from Holkham beach, voted best beach in Great Britain. Campers are welcome to bring their tents, caravans, campervans or can hire a luxury bell tent for the family.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. Back by popular demand is a military band - The Royal Anglian Regimental Band, the Hound Parade plus the Dog and Duck Show - herding unruly ducks!
With plenty of activities blending countryside traditions and family fun, there is something for everyone, including:
• Trying your hand at British country pursuits including clay pigeon shooting, fishing and target golf
• Enjoying traditional fairground rides and classic side stalls - straight from the set of ITV’s Downton Abbey
