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.

Alice – The Grand Unveiling

Sunday 27 May 2018 from 2:15pm.

As a result of funds raised at the 2016 and 2017 Country Fairs we have been able to pay for the wood carvings in The Mad Hatter’s Copse and are very excited to announce the unveiling of more Alice in Wonderland sculptures on Sunday 27 May 2018, details as shown on the poster below. Hotham Park Heritage Trust are thrilled that we have been able to get the Bard and the Troubadour to perform their Alice in Wonderland Theatre production, this will be the first live performance of a play in the Park. Children should find this show very engaging. Also the Suzanne Hill School of Dance will perform song and dance routines to entertain us.

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.

The Country Fair 2018 organising team are pleased to announce that the 17th Annual Country Fair will take place in Hotham Park on Saturday 4 August and Sunday 5 August 2018. Bookings are now being taken via this website for traders using their own gazebos. Please complete and submit the application form on our Exhibit at an Event page promptly as pitches are likely to be sold quickly. More information about this great Event will follow but please save the days.

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 this has proved to be a welcome addition. To further our aims we are now delighted to announce the addition of 3 more Alice in Wonderland figures, which has been made possible with the funds raised from the 2017 Country Fair. The unveiling date is scheduled for Sunday 27 May 2018 and you are all invited.

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!

Music in the Park 2018

Selected Sundays from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

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

We are currently organising musical entertainment for 4 dates in 2018, 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.
