Got something MAGICAL planned this weekend?

How about something with magicians, fairies, wizards, mystics, magic menders, water bubble fun, fairy-tale cottage, unicorn, Mad Hatters, gnomes, witches, Santa Claus & family on holiday, and more…

Interactive magical family fun at Kentwell Hall

From sorcery and trickery to alchemy and fairies, a wonderful day of magic lies in wait. The House and grounds will be open, with magic spread across 30 acres of enchanting gardens, with a surprise around every corner.

So much to do

Have your fortune read by Gnostic Gned; join the Princesses Union; discuss government at the Gods and Goddesses Conference; help Alice in Wonderland find the Cheshire Cat and we have heard tell that Mr and Mrs Christmas fancy holidaying at Kentwell this summer...

Why not add to the fun and dress your little (and big) witches, wizards, elves, pixies, and fairies up for their visit?

Explore the gardens — and keep a look out for gnomes and fairies!

The gnomes can talk for hours about mini beasts and worms, and have a great Nine Gnomes Morris floor game. The spider fairies are on a mission to catch spiders that the naughty pixies released, help them out and your little one may even be able to make a spider to take home!

Wand decorating

Bring your little wizards and witches to meet our big ones… and decorate your own wand to help you weave some wonderous spells.
