Parham Autumn Fair

22nd and 23rd September 2018
10.30am – 5.00pm

A celebration of autumn and estate life.

Celebrating the abundance of produce and the traditional rituals of harvest time, the Autumn Fair brings together the very best of homemade food, locally grown produce and activities for all ages. From falconry displays and working dog demonstrations to duck herding and guided deer walks (records of Parham’s herd of dark fallow deer date back to 1628), this popular event offers visitors an insight into the diverse range of activities associated with running an historical country estate.

Visitors can enjoy spectacular displays of seasonal homegrown fruit and vegetables, created by Parham’s own expert gardening team, as they also offer advice on growing your own.

As part of the celebration of autumnal produce, we will welcome James Golding, Group Chef Director of THE PIG, a hotel group renowned for its use of homegrown and locally sourced ingredients. James will deliver a cookery demonstration on Saturday 22nd September, while on Sunday guests can look forward to a demonstration from Parham’s own Head Chef, Neil Rusbridger.

With entry to Parham House included in the ticket price, visitors can explore the many enchanting rooms, including The Great Hall and The Long Gallery. There will also be interesting talks about family past times and wartime evacuees taking place throughout the weekend.

In addition to the exciting talks and demonstrations, there will be an array of stalls selling country wares and seasonal, locally produced food and drink including garlic, honey, cider and much more.

The Autumn Fair also offers a unique opportunity to explore the inside of Parham’s 18th-century dovecote and the ice house, both of which are only open for this event.

Parham’s popular storyteller is also set to return this year to regale young guests with a number of local Sussex folktales.

Please be aware that the Velo South cycle ride is taking place on Sunday 23rd September and many of the local roads will be closed.
