Join us for the Fayre

Join us for a weekend of fun for all the family with live entertainment, shopping, children's games & activities and demonstrations of countryside skills.

Ickworth has a rich history of traditional country skills and estate traditions and we are looking to celebrate this with our annual 'Country Estate Fayre' taking place on Saturday 29 June and Sunday 30 July.

Browse wool and craft stalls from home made jewellery to wool products and grab a delicious bite to eat from one of our street stalls.

There will be lots for families to do at the Fayre with a kids zone with storytelling, games and felting workshops. As well as an animal corner, where you can meet a Suffolk Punch Horse, go on a Donkey ride and have a go at some agility with your four legged friends.

Stories to spark imaginations can be heard for all to hear at the Country Estate Fayre

Meet the Ickworth team to explore the role of bee keeping, nettle fertilisation, what Walled garden produce will be grown, and how we care for our House and it's collection.   

Meet a horse just like 'Kitty' who lived and worked at Ickworth in the 1930s
