The Fairy Fair is family day out where entertainment meets magic, nature and folklore.
Set the grounds of Holt Hall, the Fairy Fair is held over 2 days with activity tents, marquees and other attractions throughout the surrounding woodland area.
The Fairy Fair attracts all ages but is designed mainly for children between 3-8 years. Many families come back year after year even when the children are quite grown up. Read more…
We had been counting down to the annual Fairy Fair for months, we’ve been going since Eila was one and she absolutely loves it.
We are so lucky to have such an event on our doorstep, run by the the Fairyland Trust charity. The Fairy Fair is set in the stunning and magical grounds of Holt Hall in North Norfolk and has been since 2007 after moving from Narborough hall near Kings Lynn. People come far and wide to attend, many making a holiday out of it by staying in the local area.
Who said the festival season ends in September? The Fairyland Trust‘s second jaunt of the year, The Real Halloween was held once again in the beautiful surroundings of Holt Hall, North Norfolk.
The Real Halloween celebrates the magic of Halloween and late Autumn, without the plastic, the horror and the trick or treating and is designed to enchant and not to scare. Read more…
The Fairy Fair – 3rd and 4th June 2012
11th Fairy Fair at Holt Hall, Norfolk. I attended with my husband and daughter Eila aged 3 and son Evan aged 5 months.
The Fairy Fair is well sign posted once you reach the town of Holt so no problems getting there.
We arrived at 10:45 so we had to queue a bit but this was very well managed by the stewards and we were parked up quickly and ready to go in.
There was a bit of a queue to enter the main site but again this was well managed. I had to go ahead with Eila, as her booked workshop was about to start, but we got there in time
The main area consisted of the performance tent which had musicians, storytelling and children’s drop in activities and the “pub” which served a range of local beers and pork pies from Brays Cottage.
In the same area, in the shadow of the giant old oak tree, there were pirate based activities and games and cooking for trolls where you could make a mud pie for the trolls. You could also go to the Pixie Post Office and for a small charge choose a postcard to colour and write out to friends or family then the fairies would stamp it and pop it in their post box to post!
