Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd 10am-5pm
This coming weekend sees the first Spring Fayre in the park, hosted by Battenburg Events. This two day event features quality specialist nurseries, furniture and accessories, crafts, gifts and plenty of fine food and drink such as popular restaurant quality street food, Provenance Kitchen and travelling bar, the Banquet Inn. For children there will be hands-on pottery, R.E.A.L fitness taster sessions, Green Leaf forest school craft and an exciting reptile experience!
The weather's looking good and it should be a lovely event to celebrate the start of spring.
Advance tickets cost £4.50. Children and parking are FREE.
Tickets on the day will be £5 for adults.
For more information and to purchase tickets please visit the Spring Fayre website.
Can I still visit the park as usual this weekend?
While the Spring Fayre is running there will be some restricted access to the park. The area north of the 13th drain (off-lead dog area - please see the park map (Adobe/PDF, 85KB)) will be open as usual. Anyone coming in through the main entrance who doesn't want to be part of the event can also get to this area. The areas south of the drain will have restricted access and be for ticket holders only.
Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are welcome in all areas of the park as long as they are under control. The event area is also the on-lead dog area so please keep your dog on lead anywhere in the park which is south of the 13th public drain.
Will there be parking on site?
There is parking on site and overflow parking for events. However, parking capacity is limited and we recommend that you travel on foot, bike or bus if at all possible for this event. The Milton Park & Ride is a 0.5 mile walk away and the number 9 bus runs from Drummer Street in Cambridge and stops at Tesco, just a short walk from the park.
Why ticket this event?
The country park is run by a charity and its costs are covered in a variety of ways. A large proportion of the park's revenue comes from the car park and we are fortunate that the majority of our visitors understand and support this car park fee. Without this the park would not be able to sustain the free open access it provides its many visitors every day of the year! By occasionally hosting a ticketed event (whether externally run or organised by staff and volunteers) we are able to raise funds in a way which doesn't rely so heavily on the car parking charge, meaning visitors can contribute equally and we can also encourage other methods of transport.
Thank you for supporting Milton Country Park and we look forward to welcoming our visitors to this event!
