Floral fringe fair at Knepp Castle

Last weekend I headed to the wonderful Floral fringe fair at Knepp Castle, a celebration of all things vintage, floral and food. It was packed with stalls and was much bigger than both myself and my fair exploring companion (my Mum) expected. There were vintage caravans to look inside, vintage stalls, vintage cars, plant and flower stalls, cake and food stalls, craft stalls, morris dancers, a singing quartet and even a tree house to explore. As well as a bit of shopping, I sampled a delicious marshmallow filled with raspberry (wish I’d taken down the stall name) and had a go at weaving on one of the craft stalls.

And if the fair wasn’t enough, the setting was just beautiful too. Knepp Castle itself is privately lived in so you can't go inside but the exterior with its turrets, towers and climbing roses made the perfect backdrop. Then there was the huge lake, also gorgeous and its banks made a great place to eat our picnic and enjoy the sunshine. We made sure to wash down our lunch with a chocolate brownie from one of the cake stalls too! Bliss.








We’ll definitely be back next year.

  1. This looks so charming - I love the chicken wire geese and all the bright decorations. Not quite so sure about the Morris dancers, but it's definitely a look! xxx

    1. I think they were some sort of pagan morris dancers, but we missed the beginning where they probably explained who they were. Tempted to try making a chicken wire goose when we finally have somewhere with a garden :) xx
