I am so excited to be involved with the Fairyland Trust’s fairy fair this year. This year’s fundraising Fairy Fair (29th and 30th May) looks set to be the biggest and best ever. Set in the beautiful grounds of Holt Hall, Norfolk, this magical family day out is not to be missed.
First the very first time I will be bringing my fairy tutus to the fairy fair and selling my new range of Eco tutus at this event. These tutus fit in with the conservation ideas that the Fairyland Trust promotes, and will be great for the children (and parents!) to run around in! I’ll be making tutus for children but also some for adults too, no need for the grown-ups to be left out of all the fairy fun!! I will of course be wearing one of my fairy tutus and can’t wait to get out my wings and glitter for a weekend of magical fun!
What is a Fairy Fair?
A Fairy Fair is a family day out where entertainment meets nature, magic and folklore. It is held on two days from 10am – 5pm, with a central activity and entertainment area of tents and marquees, and other attractions spread throughout acres of surrounding woodland, rich in wildlife.
Attracting all ages but designed especially for families with 3 – 8 year olds, Fairy Fairs create a unique atmosphere described by one dad as ‘An Organic Disney’. The Fairyland Trust runs 45 minute bookable workshops such as creating a magic wand with wood from a native tree, or magic potions, led by trained leaders and including elements of performance and storytelling. There are wandering musicians, a Pirate Fete, stalls selling food and crafts, drop-in workshops such as Bug Bling and Dens in the Woods, a woodland trail, Walkabouts and a Performance Tent, as well as tea, coffee, cakes and beer.
See the Fairyland Trust website for more information and I hope to see you there!
