We were invited to Sandon Spring Fair which was held over the Bank Holiday Weekend at Sandon Hall in Stafford, Staffordshire for a fun, family day out at the Fair. There were lots of stalls there selling craft items, food stalls, fine cheese, drinks, food, live music, kids fairground rides as well as craft and cookery demonstrations. We headed there on Sunday morning and it was a lovely day to begin with with fabulous weather. It was not as crowded when we arrived, hence parking was ample and there was no jam getting into the Hall. We were guided onto a gravel track to the parking spot which seemed like a long and bumpy ride. And upon arrival at the carpark, we were greeted with this lovely view.
There were lots of antique cars as well as collector’s cars which was so beautiful to look. The owners were very chatty and very keen to explain about the cars as well as answer any of your questions.
Here’s some close-up photos of a Daimler
There were lots of food stalls selling various types of food, licensed drink bars as well as dessert stalls for those who are hungry.

There was a section dedicated to kid’s area with fairground rides, kid’s craft activity, face painting as well as petting the farm animal section. This was a great idea especially to keep the kids entertained. On a downside, there was nothing free for the kids except for petting the animal and everything from the fair ground rides to the craft activity as well as face painting cost between £2.50 – £3 each.
There were plenty of live entertainment throughout the day from singing, dancing, cooking demonstrations, tips as well as craft demonstrations. This kept the audiences entertained throughout their stay or while they were sitting down enjoying their meal and ice-creams.
Here’s a short hi-def video of the dancers doing one of their dance routines. Everyone enjoyed watching their performance.
Here’s a photo of my daughter getting some glitter into her hair, she loved it.
