The Angel Fair 2017
Note to all stallholders at the Angel Fair 29/30 November
Thank you so much for your applications for the Angel Fair. We are delighted with the enthusiastic response and are certain this will be a beautiful and successful event.
We do have however, some news about our accommodation which as you know was to be at Peterborough Showground in a building offered to us free of charge by the Agricultural Society.
Due to commercial pressures, this building is no longer available to us.
We are now moving the Fair into a large marquee erected by very kind permission of Sir William and Lady Proby at Elton Hall, about twelve miles out of Peterborough, ten minutes from the A1, on the A 605 towards Northampton. The company responsible for the marquee erected the tentage at Irnham Hall which many of you will have occupied over the years. Parking is adjacent in the grass park.
We feel that this setting in the environs of a stately home, is much more congenial than the previous arrangement and we feel sure that it will have a positive impact on our footfall.
Please email me if you have any concerns, but rest assured you will receive the same amount of space previously booked.
Within the village of Elton itself, is a well regarded pub called the Crown which has a few en suite rooms in which to stay. At Fotheringhay, approximately four miles away, there is a very good B and B... at Oundle, eight miles away is the Talbot Hôtel. Oundle has good options for evening meals.
We much look forward to being in touch nearer the event and hope you have a good summer.
Victoria Leatham, Vicky Whiter, Nigel Cole.
