Christmas at the Castle

Christmas at the Castle – Saturday 18th November 2023 – 10am-4pm

Applications are now closed for our Christmas at the Castle event 2023.

Our shopping fair is back with over 50 local businesses selling a huge range of beautiful products to get your Christmas shopping off to a flying start as you wander round our beautiful castle! We are thrilled that Lynwood & Co will be running their pop-up café again, serving their signature hot drinks, snacks and light lunches. Entry is £5 per person (children free) and everyone is welcome.

Follow us on Instagram @christmasatthecastlefair where we will be showcasing all of our fabulous stallholders.

All proceeds are shared between Yellow Submarine, an Oxfordshire charity that believes people with learning disabilities and autism deserve to live life to the full, and Hatherop Castle School Parents’ Association. We are very grateful to Jackson Stops for sponsoring our fair this year.

Messages from our stallholders

Dear Hatherop,

Thank you so much for having us on Saturday, what a lovely fair, magical setting and happy day. The children were all absolutely delightful and a credit to you all and the school.

Dear Hatherop,

I just wanted to thank you for your warm welcome, kind words and for looking after me so well yesterday at your Christmas at the Castle. 

I had a great day, met some lovely people, stallholders and customers alike, and thoroughly enjoyed myself!

It was very obvious how much hard work by you and your team, had gone into making the event a success.

Thoughts from our visitors

“What a magnificent Fair, there is such a wide variety of things to buy and certainly something for everyone. I will certainly be returning next year and bringing some friends with me!”

“Gosh, I cannot believe how good this Fair was after a break of 5 years, it has been such a fun day with a lovely atmosphere and really good quality stalls.”

“The standard of the fair was just fabulous this year, something for everyone and some really lovely, unique items for sale that I would not have found on the high street. I will definitely be coming back next year!”
