Burton Agnes Hall, Yorkshire hosts bustling, seasonal street fair



At the end of October, Burton Agnes Hall will host its annual Michaelmas Fair, which celebrates the traditional feast of St. Michael, and marks the end of the farming year.
 
During the weekend of the 28th and 29th October, the bustling street fair offers stunning, hand crafted gifts and delicious local produce in the impressive grounds of this Elizabethan family home.
 
A huge variety of quality stalls will offer something for everyone, providing fairgoers with a wonderful opportunity to make an early start with Christmas shopping!  A traditional fair organ will billow out tunes to entertain browsing visitors, traditional street performances include sword dancing and Morris dancing, and fairground rides will run throughout the weekend.
 
Set amongst the stalls, visitors will find Burton Agnes Hall’s courtyard shops. The Garden Shop and the Gift Shop will offer tempting and unusual gifts, souvenirs and seasonal produce. Delicious treats await visitors in the cafe, where freshly prepared meals, warming drinks and soups and home baked cakes will be served throughout the weekend.
 
During the half-term break, Burton Agnes Hall will also be daring visitors of all ages to take part in a spooky woodland trail. Clues will be hidden in the Hall’s woodland, where dramatic and imaginative Halloween scenes will hide among the creaking trees and rustling bushes!
