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 or click here.

The following is an archive of an event organised and run by Hotham Park Heritage Trust in 2015.

Hotham Park Heritage Trust Country Fair 2015

Sponsored by: Richmond Hyundai

HOTHAM PARK HERITAGE TRUST VOLUNTEERS once again delivered a week-end of family fun and activity with their 14th Country Fair on the 1st & 2nd August 2015.

Visitors enjoyed the enormous variety of Craft Stalls and entertainment that the Trust lined up for their enjoyment at this traditional annual event.

Throughout the Park there were local Crafts, animal displays and children’s activities, a Tea Tent, Beer Tent, Hog Roast, Thai food, and savouries. Crazee Hazee provided fun and laughter at the Mary Macfie Pavilion, and everyone could listen to, watch or join in the live entertainment at the bandstand, travel on a horse- drawn wagon or ride a donkey.

The piebald horses Magpie and Billy, otherwise known as ‘Big and Little’, appeared on both Saturday and Sunday and the crowd were enthralled by the tricks  that were performed for them.  There was also a petting arena where children of all ages could enjoy themselves in the company of meerkats, snakes, spiders and the like!

Hotham Park Heritage Trust is a Registered Charity and the work was undertaken by a group of unpaid Members and Volunteers.  This means that funds raised at the event were spent on improving the amenities in Hotham Park, for the benefit of the public.
