A fairy good time at family fun weekend in Stradsett




Magical family fun was enjoyed by thousands who attended the Fairy Fair at Stradsett Estate at the weekend.

The event, organised by the Fairyland Trust, saw about 2,500 people discover more about nature at Primrose Woods on Saturday and Sunday.

Abbie Panks, of conservation charity the Fairyland Trust who helped organise the event, said: "It was amazing, we had lots of happy children."

Fairy workshops, live music and storytelling were all part of the weekend, which aimed to "spark the imagination" of children and their families.

"It's all about having fun and learning along the way," Mrs Panks added.

The event marked the Fairyland Trust's 17th Fairy Fair, but the first at Stradsett, as the charity has been touring the fair since it was first started in 2001.

Mrs Panks said the Fairy Fair aims to teach visitors about the "magic of nature".

"It teaches them a lot about wild flowers, birds and wildlife," she added.

"It's not only a great family activity, but everyone learns something."

The fair also raised funds for the Fairyland Trust.

The charity's next event will be its Real Halloween weekend on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, 28 at Bradmoor Woods in West Acre.

Mrs Panks said: "It's nothing to do with anything scary or horror, but it's about wildlife and the changing of the seasons."

Visitors can expect workshops, the Halloween games, a fire show, witch and wizard training, and more.
