We need more Members and Volunteers to help us organise and run our Country Fair and other events in 2018. Please join us to ensure we can repeat our previous successes. All profits will be spent to improve Hotham Park.
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 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.
All funds raised will allow us to continue improving the park for the benefit of the public. The profits from our 2016 Country Fair enabled us to embark on our project of creating a Mad Hatter’s Copse within the Park and we are hoping to add 3 more Alice in Wonderland figures to this with the funds raised from the 2017 Country Fair. The unveiling date is scheduled for Sunday 27 May 2018 so keep checking this page for more exciting details.
A massive THANK YOU to all our wonderful Members and Volunteers who have helped organise and run the event in previous years and without whom it would not go ahead. They do an amazing job and we thank them sincerely.
We need even MORE people to help us ensure the event goes ahead in 2018 so please get involved by visiting our Membership page for a paper application form or our Volunteer page to complete and submit our on-line form. The planning and preparation will start again soon so please don’t delay!
We hope you enjoyed the 2017 Country Fair. For a reminder of the event (or to see what you missed!) a video and pictures are available below.

All events organised by Hotham Park Heritage Trust are to raise funds to improve the park for all. In 2016 we raised funds to create the Mad Hatter’s Copse. Please visit our dedicated page for more information.
