Since the first fair in June 2007, venues in Kent have been chosen to reflect the magazine’s values: iconic Sissinghurst Castle Garden, bucolic Brick House Farm, gracious Hole Park Estate and the walled garden at Bedgebury Pinetum, have all played the part of backdrops for Wealden Times’ Fairs and proved to be idyllic settings.
Over 150 hand-picked exhibitors are featured selling contemporary and vintage home wares, garden accessories, fabulous fashion and jewellery as well as artisan produced food and drink. The popularity of the events means that the fairs are massively oversubscribed with companies wanting to sell their wares and the entry standards have been set very high. Exceptional quality, good craftsmanship, originality and fine design are all essential qualities of products sold at the fairs.
Our next Midsummer Fair is on 9th, 10th & 11th June 2016 at Hole Park, Rolvenden, Kent.
In October 2012 Wealdenfairs.com was launched to sell some of the products that are available at the Wealden Times Midsummer and Midwinter Fairs online so that shoppers can enjoy the experience of visiting the fairs 365 days a year. Search for products on the site under category headings or by visiting the 'shop fronts' of their favourite exhibitors using the exhibitor A-Z.
