Christmas themed food event at Holkham

Christmas at Holkham

Festive Food Fair

Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th December, 10am–4pm

Feast your senses in The Lady Elizabeth Wing this festive season. Following the success of our inaugural Festive Food Fair, a delicious collection of food and drink from the best of local and regional producers will be back for 2018, offering a truly magical Christmas food event. Stock up on ingredients for your own Christmas feast, or find plenty of treats for the food lovers on your gift list from the many stalls and chalets. Our cookery theatre with a difference, hosted by Charlie Hodson of Charlie’s Norfolk Food Heroes, features demonstrations from local chefs. You can also relax in the bar in The Lady Elizabeth Wing which will be open for drinks both days, as well as our courtyard café.

Our charity partner for the Festive Food Fair is Heritage House, a day care centre for the elderly in nearby Wells-next-the-Sea. Make sure you visit the Heritage House stand, where you’ll have the chance to wine some truly amazing prizes in their Christmas raffle.

If you are interested in holding a stall at the Festive Food Fair, please contact Shirley Browell telephone: 01328 713104 or email:
