A FAVOURITE weekend for all the family is to return in Bognor Regis this year.
Hotham Park Country Fair, pictured, will be back on August 3 and 4 for the 18th year.
Organisers at the Hotham Park Heritage Trust – with help from Bognor Regis Rotary Club – have been busy putting together a packed programme of activities and attractions to ensure the Saturday and Sunday continue to attract thousands of visitors.
Trust chairman Anne Cranham said: “The fair offers the chance to enjoy a fun and relaxing day, with something to keep all members of the family entertained from music and singers on the bandstand to Punch and Judy by the pavilion – and everything in between.
“The traditional marquee will be back on the lawn, filled with friendly stallholders selling their arts and crafts.
“As people walk through the park, they will see lots more stalls, offering a wide variety of goods, activities and information.”
Rides will be available in a wagon pulled by magnificent Suffolk Punch horses and will also be available on donkeys.
Children’s rides and bouncy castles will be present for more energetic fun. A challenge to hit the bell will provide a test of strength and a vintage tractor will be a new to this year’s fair.
“Bandstand entertainment will be professionally arranged so you can be assured of a variety of high-quality entertainment throughout the day,” said Anne.
A huge choice of hot and cold food will be available for anyone who is feeling peckish.
It will include hog roast, burgers, Thai food, cheese on toast, paella and sausages, alongside a great variety of hot and cold drinks.
The town’s Lions club will sell tea, beer and mouth-watering homemade cakes.
