Sandon Spring Fair Review *

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.

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.

Sandon Spring Fair was a fabulous fair to go to, if you have missed it this year, don’t worry, there will be another one next year. Although some of the food items were expensive such as a Thai curry and rice cost about £6, and a Crepe with filling cost about £4 but you  also had a choice of getting cheaper food at such as an equally yummy specialty hot dog roll for £3. I would totally recommend attending the Sandon Spring Fair as a family fun day out with lots of entertainment.
Sandon Hall is a beautiful Country House built in 1854 and a favourite for wedding couples to have their weddings here. It houses some fabulous paintings and has over 50-acres of garden space. So if you have time on your hands after the fair, I would recommend getting tickets to view Sandon Hall and enjoy all it has to offer.
