The annual Hatfield House Frost Fair returns next week.

Christmas is little over a month away and where better to pick up an early gift than Hatfield House’s annual Frost Fair?

This exciting and vibrant festive event takes place at the stately home from Friday, November 21 to Sunday, November 23.

Held in The Old Palace, the Riding School and heated marquees on the Palace Green, there will be up to 200 stands of gift ideas, as well as craftsmen and women showing off their skills.

Shoppers can also taste a mouth-watering array of food and drink, and be entertained by choirs, dancers and street entertainers throughout the fair.

Father Christmas will be in attendance on all three days, courtesy of Hatfield Rotary Club.

There will also be drop-in workshops, including creative Christmas decorating using fresh flowers and greenery.
