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 the biggest event organised and run by Hotham Park Heritage Trust in 2019.
Hotham Park Heritage Trust Country Fair 2019
Saturday 3 August and Sunday 4 August 2019. Open from 11:00am to 5:00pm each day.
Wow, we did it again. Probably our best Country Fair ever. If you were able to come and join us we hope you had a wonderful time. If you were not able to be there, take a look at what you could have seen!

We were delighted that our Special Guest Star, Bobby Davro, was able to open Hotham Park Country Fair for us.
Bobby will also star in Live at the Regis from 21st-25th August 2019. Tickets are now on sale. Don’t miss it!
The Country Fair was held in the lovely surroundings of Hotham Park in Bognor Regis. It was a great day out for all the family and had become a major event for the Bognor Regis Summer Season Calendar. It was open from 11pm to 5pm each day with FREE entry.
There was something for everyone to enjoy the whole weekend. You could browse around the craft stalls, enjoy the live entertainment at the Bandstand, watch the children’s entertainer, join in with circus skills, ride on a horse-drawn wagon, eat and drink at a variety of outlets, see animal displays, have fun on bouncy castles and much, much more.
The funds raised allowed us to continue improving the Park for the benefit of the public. Profits from our previous Country Fairs also enabled us to embark on our project of creating a Mad Hatter’s Copse within the Park which proved to be a welcome addition, especially after adding 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 helped organise and run our events and without whom they would not have gone ahead. They did an amazing job and we thank them sincerely.
