Hotham Park Heritage Trust Country Fair 2019

Saturday 3 August and Sunday 4 August 2019. Open from 11:00am to 5:00pm each day. FREE entry.

Don’t miss this opportunity!




The Hotham Park Heritage Trust Events Team is busy planning the 18th Hotham Park Country Fair which will be held on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th of August 2019 between 11am and 5pm each day with FREE entry.

The event is held in the lovely surroundings of Hotham Park in Bognor Regis. There will be around 50 different craft stalls, a wide range of hot and cold refreshments including a licenced alcohol area, great family entertainment throughout the weekend and a range of attractions to entice the public into the park. Around 10,000 people visit the Country Fair over the weekend so, if you would like to take part in the Event as a stallholder, a sponsor or as a volunteer, please click on the relevant link/s below.

The funds raised will allow us to continue improving the Park for the benefit of the public. Profits from our previous Country Fairs have 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 Members and Volunteers who have helped organise and run our events and without whom they would not go ahead. They do an amazing job and we thank them sincerely.

Herewith the history of these events and details of performances that have been enjoyed in previous years

Hotham Park Heritage Trust entered new territory in 2016 by offering even more FREE entertainment during the summer in Hotham Park.

In 2018 we presented musical entertainment on 4 occasions, as shown on the poster on the right.

In 2017 we hosted 3 events featuring Coustics Ukulele Band, The Bognor Regis Concert Band and Beaten Tracks Instrumental Band. All were well attended and went down well with the public who were able to relax and enjoy the entertainment.

In 2016 we were entertained by Elliott Herrington (pianist and songwriter with his own spin on well known songs), Geoff Valenti (solo trumpet player) and Tom Janes (classical guitarist) so there have been a wide range of musical styles to enjoy.

Hotham Park Heritage Trust is a Registered Charity and all work is undertaken by a group of unpaid volunteers. The funds raised are spent on improving the amenities in Hotham Park for the benefit of the public so, if you would like to get involved, please contact us via our membership or volunteer pages. We would love to hear from you.

In case you cannot wait until our next event, here is a video of Beaten Tracks Instrumental Band in action.

As you can see, we have many exciting events and, if you would like to get involved in any aspects of Hotham Park Heritage Trust we would love to hear from you. Your support and help with the work we do will help to ensure that Hotham Park goes from strength to strength.
