New to the Fine Food Village will be an all-day programme in the cookery demonstration tent, and among those joining will be Chris Coubrough (from The Crown Hotel, Wells), Eric Snaith (Titchwell Manor), Chris Gates (MasterChef finalist); and Matthew Gudgin of BBC Radio Norfolk will be doing a slot as a sous chef.

Organiser Christopher Lloyd Owen said: “As usual Holkham will have something for everybody, and we're delighted that so many top people are coming to cook for us in our bespoke demo tent: the Country Fair will be two days of fun in a rather gloomy year.”

Over 200 Trade Stands, a children's fairground, plenty of showground events - including a top clay pigeon shoot, fishing, dog events and more complete the line-up.

Entry for adults is £13 on both days: accompanied children 14 and under enter free. Car parking is free and dogs are welcome on leads. Gates open at 9am.
