Wolverton Manor Garden Fair 2019
Dates & Prices
It’s a special fair this year, celebrating its’ 20th anniversary, Wolverton Manor Garden Fair will take place on the 31st August and 1st September and we are already gearing up for what is set to be a memorable weekend.
Funds raised over the last 2 decades by the volunteers exceed £200.000 and have benefited Age UK (IoW) and numerous other smaller local Island charities. Last year we raised a record £22,000 for Age UK(IoW) and gave £800 each to Island charities: The Foodbank, Cowes Sea Scouts, Wight Brainy Bunch, Care in the Garden and The Salvation Army. Visitor numbers over the weekend exceeded 6000 !!
We will also be saying goodbye to Roger Phillips – our stalwart who has been an invaluable lynchpin, organising the fair since the very beginning. He will be sorely missed and a farewell party is being organised at the manor on the Saturday – all exhibitors are invited.
This traditional garden fair is still the most popular of its’ kind on the Island. Packed full of fun and entertainment for all the family, it really is not to be missed.
You will be stunned by the variety of specialist Island and Mainland garden nursery stalls, displaying a diverse and inspiring range of plants, flowers and gardenalia.
You will be kept busy exploring over 100 Arts & Craft stalls exhibiting an eclectic selection of wonderful items from some very skilled crafters.
You can relax and enjoy choosing from a wide range of refreshment foods and drinks.
You will be entertained by Elizabethan “re-enactors” who bring dancing, cooking and crafts from the past back to life. There will be dog shows, wildlife/conservation experts, alpacas and donkeys, poultry exhibits, wood carving, traditional wool spinning, archery, falconry displays, kayaking on the moat, tree/wall climbing, vintage and military vehicles, vintage fairground amusements, magic shows, live music and lots more.
We do hope you come along to support us again this year – both exhibitors and visitors can be assured they will have a great time.
