Fairy Fair returns this weekend with its award-winning event. 

The magical festivities raise funds for the Fairyland Trust, a Norfolk-based charity for introducing families to flowers, wildlife and trees.

It will be held at the new venue of Primrose Woods, Stradsett Hall, Stradsett, tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday from 10am to 5pm.

The family event has a range of magical activities for all ages. These include workshops such as fairy gardens, crowns, elf and fairy training and drop-in workshops including bouncing bees, which will show how to identify bees by making a model British bee.

There will be pirate games, magical creatures in the fairyland wildlife hospital and a chance to send postcards to family and friends from the pixie post office.

Visitors can have their pictures taken in a fairyland photo booth and this year, you can also visit a troll’s beauty parlour.

Event organiser Abbie Panks said: “Fairy Fair was designed to spark the imagination of children and their families.

“This year sees our 17th Fairy Fair and to date, we have helped thousands of children and their families discover the magic of nature which is no mean feat.

“We are really looking forward to heading to Stradsett Estate for the late May Bank Holiday weekend and welcoming lots of children and families to the fair.”

Cheeky bees, beautiful wildflower fairies and a Fairy King and Queen will be some of the characters to meet, plus a host of other special guests.

There will also be Maypole dancing, storytelling, live music, food and refreshments, award-winning ales and ciders and craft stalls.

Tickets cost £10 for adults, £9 for children and free admission for under threes. All profits go to the Fairyland Trust.
