For those of you watching the weather, you will have noticed that the classic British Summer has arrived! Just in time for our Summer Festival…
We have been monitoring the weather for Saturday extremely closely with the aim of continuing with the Festival but with some adjustments, including moving many of the activities indoors. The Festival will still be a safe and enjoyable event for all those dedicated supporters who will be coming for some fun this Saturday.
Whilst some outdoor activities will be curtailed on Saturday, there is a great deal of entertainment that will now be taking place in secure spaces such as the House, Chapel and our safe marquees.
As the weather improves the Festival will be restored to its full glory on Sunday!
On Saturday, Festival Ticket Holders will now get FREE entry to the Mansion where you will find a range of stalls, music and activities.
Speakers Corner has been moved into the Chapel, where you will hear a range of distinguished speakers. The music planned for Saturday will be held within a secured marquee on the South Lawn and within the House.
Activities that will be going ahead as planned (as long as deemed safe at the time), are the Stansted Safari, Archery, the Napoleonic Living History Camp in East Park, the Woods & Parkland Display in the Orange Grove and the T34 Tank will be on display as your come through the entrance gate.
We have had to cancel the following due to safety reasons: Laser Clay Shooting, Mini Golf, Stansted Maze, Yoga, Light Railway and Forest School. We plan for them all to go ahead as planned on Sunday.
Although it is not quite the full Saturday experience we had put together for you, we are pleased to be able to open the doors to Stansted House to festival ticket holders for free as an added bonus to make up for our glorious British weather!
