Win panto tickets as Frost Fair opens at Hatfield House

VISIT the Frost Fair at Hatfield House, which opens today (Friday), for truly sparkling gifts, goodies and the chance to bag family tickets to see Cinderella at Campus West, WGC.

Held in a magical setting in front of the Old Palace, childhood home of Elizabeth I, the event provides an atmospheric start to Christmas.

Browse the heated marquees for a wide range of unusual gifts. The event continues in the Riding School conference centre where there are yet more tempting items.

Lunches, coffees and teas are available in the Old Palace itself, and at the coffee cart in the Stable Yard.

Stable Yard retailers are becoming really popular with Hatfield visitors. Choose beautiful jewellery and craft items, antiques and curios together with delightful vintage gifts from The Oak Room.
