Belton Autumn Fayre

A celebration of autumn comes to Belton House on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 October, as it celebrates its annual Autumn Fayre.

Stalls at the Christmas fair

Seasonal activities and outdoor entertainment will be on offer over the weekend, as well as a chance to explore the Belton’s history and 1300 acres of deer park.

The two day Autumn Fayre offers families the chance to immerse themselves in all things autumnal, from learning forest skills with Silverback Bushcraft, and having-a-go at den building in Lincolnshire’s largest outdoor adventure playground, to exploring autumn with the RSPB’s Nature’s Colour trail.

Browse a selection of handmade arts, crafts and foods that celebrate the best of regional produce. With local traders selling a variety of foods, vintage linens, handmade jewellery, artisan crafts, leather bags, garden items, home décor and more, the fayre promises there will be a treat to be found by all.

Plus, four-legged friends needn’t miss out on the fun, with Lincolnshire Greyhound Trust’s annual greyhound walk around the parkland taking place on Sunday, starting at 11 am.
