The Fairy Fair is returning to Norfolk, bringing magical events to two new venues.
The fair raises funds for the Fairyland Trust, the Norfolk based charity which introduces families to flowers, wildlife and trees.
It will be pitching up at Primrose Woods, Stradsett Hall, near Downham Market, over the Bank Holiday weekend of May 26 and 27.
The event, a firm favourite with families, offers magical activities to delight children and entertain the adults, such as Fairy Gardens, elf and fairy training.
Families can partake in pirate games, tend cuddly British wildlife and other magical creatures in the fairyland wildlife hospital, send postcards to family and friends from the pixie post office, have their picture taken in the fairyland photo booth and much more
Organiser Abbie Panks said: “The Fairy Fair is, and always will be, a magical place that family and friends can enjoy together. We welcome new and old visitors each year who completely throw themselves into the spirit of the event and celebrate the magic of nature. All activities are designed to inspire and engage children and their families. The fair has been running for 15 years now and was originally set up as a touring fair so we can experience different places in Norfolk.”
Cheeky bees, beautiful wildflower fairies and the Fairy King and Queen will be some of the amazing characters to meet, plus a host of other special guests.
Sarah Wise founder of the Fairyland Trust said: “It’s fantastic the Fairy Fair is back for 2018. We are very grateful to Creative Orchard for taking on the challenge of sponsoring and organising the Fair to raise much needed funds for the trust’s work, helping children and families around the country to engage in nature.”
The Trust’s own Corncockle Café and a host of other local food outlets will be open to keep people fed, there is also the on site pub the Good Elf selling local award-winning ale and cider. For shopping there are craft stalls, selling hand-made and fairly-traded goods.
The sister event to Fairy Fair, Real Halloween, will also make a welcome return on 27 and 28 October at Bradmoor Woods, West Acre. Tickets for both weekends are on priced £10.00 for adults and £9 for children over three at www.creativeorchardevents.com.
