Athelhampton House & Gardens

Get into the Festive Spirit early this year with Dorset Food and Drink’s Christmas Fair. Taking place on Saturday 25th November and Sunday 26th November 2017, from 10am at the beautiful Athelhampton House and Gardens, this is a unique opportunity to sample the wide selection of delicious produce the county has to offer.

Following the spectacular turn out of last year’s event, this year our festival is going to be over 2 days – both the Saturday and the Sunday. Whether you’re a savoury person or prefer sweet treats, spend the day sampling from the stalls of over 50 local merchants. From scrumptious homemade pastries to unusual meats and vegetarian and vegan delicacies, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

As in previous years, there will be a FREE park & ride. The Park & ride will start at Dorset County Council, County Hall, eliminating the need for you to queue in traffic through the narrow roads of the nearby villages. Buses leave on the hour from 10am and return on the half hour from 11:30.

Entry is also only £2.50 per person, making for a fantastically good value day out which is open to all.

On Sunday 26th, Father Christmas will be joining us at the Food Fair! All proceeds collected from visiting Santa will be donated to Weldmar Hospice Trust.

The £2.50 Entry also includes access to our stunning House and Gardens – take some time out from the food tents and soak up the views of our wonderfully historic Tudor House and beautifully landscaped topiary gardens. We are proud to be hosting the Dorset Food and Drink Christmas Fair and welcoming you all through our gates!
