Celebrate harvest at Canons Ashby

Beautiful fruit, vegetables and flowers decorating the church

Join us as we celebrate the beautiful harvest season with traditional natural harvest decorations in the church and in the house, family activities and a small selection of stall holders over the weekend of 25-26 September

Enjoy the sights and smells of a traditional harvest celebration. This year it will be a slightly different event to normal, there is still plenty of fun for our visitors, young and young at heart. Sights and activities include decorations in the church, harvest touches in the house, craft activities, simple games, and a selection of local stall holders.

In the house, look out for some little harvest mice who have crept into the house this season. There are seven to spot as you explore the fascinating house.

Whilst you're here, try the Autumn Owl Trail, with your little owlets. It'll be a Hoot! Just ask at visitor reception on entrance.

Visit the fascinating house and historic church - they're decorated for harvest but interesting at any time of year.

Stroll around the beautiful garden, it may be autumn but there are plenty of beautiful blooms to enjoy.

What to do you need to know?

Normal admission prices apply (so it's free to come in for National Trust supporters), although there are some small charges for some activities.

Parking is included in your ticket, and there's no need to book.

Parts of this event takes place outdoors, so please dress up for the weather and join us whatever this autumn brings.

If you want to do some shopping with our stallholders, please bring some cash. There is bad phone reception here so cash is more reliable than the portable card readers used by stallholders.
