Tickets will be on sale from next week for a popular magical family weekend.

The Fairy Fair, which is in its 14th year and organised by Norfolk charity the Fairyland Trust, is returning to the grounds of Holt Hall on May 24 and 25.

It will be packed with magical activities to delight children and entertain all the family and the main theme will be wildflowers.

The weekend will include workshops teaching children how to make fairy crowns, fairy gardens and magic wings.

For the first time, a team of wildflower fairies will be on hand to help children make their own wearable fairy wildflower.

Children can also tend cuddly British wildlife and other magical creatures in the fairyland wildlife hospital, or visit the fairy queen and king.

The king and queen will be residing in the woods, telling children about trees and all their magic.

Budding fairies and elves can take part in elf and/or fairy training.

Pirates will run games and visitors can make magic animal shields and elf sticks as well as explore secret dens and a woodland trail.

Adults will be able to enjoy live music and performances and quench their thirst in The Good Elf pub.

Other drop-in activities include building your own fairy house in the woods, sending a postcard from the pixie post office and using the fairyland photobooth.

Sarah Wise, who created the Fairy Fair, said: 'Folklore tells us that fairies like wildflowers, while natural history and science show that wildflowers are also best for bees and other wildlife. If you come to the Fairy Fair you'll discover which the fairies' favourites are – and which ones are easy to grow in your garden.'

Tickets go on sale on Monday March 16 and cost 10 for adults, £8.50 for children. The Fairy Fair is free for children aged three and under.

To book visit www.fairylandtrust.org and a proportion of each ticket sale goes to support the charity's Fairy Meadow Fund, which aims to create new wildflower meadows.
