Our Christmas Fair is open from 11am to 7pm on each event day. Stalls located in the large marquee selling a range of exciting products will be open during these hours. There will also be a selection of hot and cold food available. Visit the Dragonfly Café (open from  8.30am to 7pm) for breakfast, sandwiches, jacket potatoes and winter specials, along with hot and cold drinks. Evening service will include the full range of hot/cold drinks, confectionery, hot sausage rolls, paninis and cakes. Bespoke caterers selling festive hot food, drinks & treats as well as mulled wine, gins and beers for the adults will be open throughout. 


There will be an Information Tent in the main car park for purchasing tokens for the Fairground Rides and booking your sessions on the climbing tower. Here you will also find missing person, lost & found and First Aid points.

Note on car parking:

We are expecting the Country Park to be extremely busy across this weekend. We kindly ask that you make use of all car parks around the Country Park, including at Dinton Activity Centre, Sandford Lane RG10 0SU, Lavells car park (opposite the activity centre car park), as well as the Anglers car park and overflow car parks via the main entrance off Davies Street RG10 0TH. 


All car parking will be clearly signposted, and marshals will be situated in the main and overflow car parks to assist you.  All car park charges will be applicable as normal. 


For your safety, if you are planning on attending the Fair late afternoon/evening, we would suggest that you bring a torch with you as not all paths leading to all car parks are lit.
