An annual country fair in the grounds of a stately home is being held this weekend

The Sotterley Country Fair is set to return on Sunday, June 23 starting at 10am.

It began in 2015 and was initiated by the Barne family of Sotterley in support of a fundraising effort in memory of Sally Bunn, the mother of the event’s organiser, Rachel Bunn.

Over the years, the fair has grown tremendously, raising over £115,000 for local charities.

Rachel Bunn said: “The show has family and charity at its heart every year, we aim to ensure a day of fun and the making of memories.

"This year's fair promises to continue in previous success, featuring over 50 craft stalls, a large collection of vintage cars, tractors, and stationary engines.

"Attendees can also enjoy main ring displays, two live music areas, and have a go at archery and clay shooting.

"The fair’s primary goal is to offer a fun-filled day for families while supporting local charities. 

"Beneficiaries include the Chedgrave Oxygen Centre, The Pear Tree Fund, and the Sandra Chapman Ward at James Paget Hospital.
