Bask in the sunshine as you explore the marquees and outdoor markets filled with handmade jewellery, homewares, clothing and more – all lovingly created by over 200 UK Craftspeople to complement a vintage loving, natural, rustic home. Throughout the day chose from a wide selection of artisan food and drink providers, and relax in the striking landscape and listen to live music, including sets from The Haywood Sisters and Crooked Style.

Dogs are welcome at our outdoor shows, but cannot enter the Food Hall or children’s play areas (with the exception of service animals).
