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 firstname.lastname@example.org or click here.
The following is an archive of an event organised and run by Hotham Park Heritage Trust in 2018.
Hotham Park Heritage Trust Country Fair 2018
Saturday 4 August and Sunday 5 August 2018. Open from 11:00am to 5:00pm each day. FREE entry.
2018 was yet another brilliant Country Fair (even if we say so ourselves!). We are delighted that so many people had such a great time and we thank everyone who came along and supported us. There was loads to see and do, including hearing exciting tales from the Yarnsmith of Norwich, horse and wagon rides, local artisan products, arts and craft, music and dancing at the bandstand, hot and cold food and drinks, children’s entertainment, bouncy castle, archery, owls, alpacas, reptiles, Punch and Judy, pony rides and so much more.
The funds raised allowed us to continue improving the Park for the benefit of the public. Profits from our previous Country Fairs enabled us to embark on our project of creating a Mad Hatter’s Copse within the Park and this has proved to be a welcome addition, especially now that we have added 3 more fantastic Alice in Wonderland figures – ie: Alice, the Queen of Hearts and the White Rabbit. These were unveiled on Sunday 27 May 2018 and there is more information here.
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.
As they say, a picture paints a thousand words so please click here for loads of fantastic pictures of the event.
We also have a great video, followed by loads more pictures, all of which have been kindly donated to us by Neil Cooper of Shepherd Media.
Hotham Park Heritage Trust relied on the goodwill of it’s unpaid Members and Volunteers to help with the organising and running of events, both leading up to and around the events themselves. Funds raised were spent on improving the amenities in Hotham Park for the benefit of the public.
