Hotham Park Heritage Trust (HPHT), currently a registered charity, is in the process of being closed with the intention of becoming a charitable organisation to be known as Friends of Hotham Park (FoHP).

All events listed on this website have always been organised and run entirely by a small group of unpaid Trustees, Members and Volunteers of Hotham Park Heritage Trust. In the Autumn of 2019 the decision was made to close the Trust because of a lack of people willing to volunteer their time.
The new charitable group, Friends of Hotham Park, hope to continue the legacy of HPHT by organising various activities in the future but they need your help. For more information please email email@example.com or click here.
The following is an archive of an event organised and run by Hotham Park Heritage Trust in 2017.
Hotham Park Heritage Trust Country Fair 2017
The Hotham Park Heritage Trust Country Fair was, yet again, a fantastic success in 2017. We are particularly grateful to everyone who supported us directly, either by giving a donation in exchange for an event programme and/or by putting a donation into one of our collection buckets. It is your direct support and enjoyment of the event that makes the hard work of the unpaid Members and Volunteers who organise it all worthwhile.
Thanks also to Butlin’s Careers for sponsoring the event, to Bob May for being our Bandstand Compere and to all the traders and stallholders who ensured there was plenty to see and do.
Funds raised allowed us to continue improving the Park for the benefit of the public. Profits from our 2016 Country Fair enabled us to embark on our project of creating a Mad Hatter’s Copse within the Park. After yet another successful Country Fair in 2017, we were delighted to add Alice, the White Rabbit and Queen of Hearts as part of our Alice in Wonderland Trail. The grand unveiling was on Sunday 27 May 2018. Make sure you follow the trail next time you are in the Park!
A massive THANK YOU to all our wonderful unpaid Members and Volunteers who helped organise and run the event and without whom it would not have gone ahead. They did an amazing job and we thank them sincerely.
We hope you enjoyed the 2017 Country Fair. For a reminder of the event (or to see what you missed!) a video is available below.
Many thanks to Neil Cooper of Shepherd Media for filming and donating this video to Hotham Park Heritage Trust. We hope you enjoy the show!
