2nd & 3rd July 2022

10.30am - 6pm daily

Join us in our second year of this highly popular family event where the House and Grounds will be thrown open to the public and visitors can enjoy a range of entertainment whilst being immersed in the History of the Estate.


Visitors will be treated to a wealth of historic interest and activities with displays that reveal the colourful history of the Estate and the Ponsonby family including the sword that General Sir William Ponsonby used at the Battle of Waterloo.   Outside in the Park, the Waterloo theme will continue with Reenactors from the Napoleonic period showing off their Cavalry and Musketry skills and demonstrating what it was like to live in a military camp on the eve of the battle.

Sporting entertainment over this exciting weekend includes cricket matches featuring the Royal Lancers, I Zingari and Stansted Park’s very own team. 

All of this interspersed with fun activities for the whole family make Stansted Summer Jamboree a must for the locals this summer. For a full list of what's on offer continue reading below.

Other attractions include:


Hot Air Balloon Rides (weather permitting) - charged at £10 per person on the day. 

Sadly, the Hot Air Balloon won't be flying today (Sunday 3rd July) at the Jamboree due to the high wind gusts. A Hot Air Balloon needs good calm conditions for inflation and take off from the ground and the wind speed needs to be lower than 10 knots to keep everyone safe.

Thank you for your understanding.


The Mansion, with its extensive Edwardian servants' quarters and artefacts of national significance from the Battle of Waterloo. Reduced entry to all Jamboree patrons at £5 per person.
