Our first fair at this lovely venue in the heart of Nottinghamshire was a brilliant success in 2021 and we're really pleased to be back in 2022

The park landscape dates from the 17th Century with later improvements by Humphrey Repton and William Nesfield, who were responsible for most of the mature landscape on the estate today.

The thriving Courtyard is home to the cafe, workshops, shops, and military museum.

We are really looking forward to our first visits to the beautiful venue this summer. We hope you will join us there.
