Fairytale Festival 2022

Fairytale Festival

Fairytale Festival 2022 has started at Fairytale Farm near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, and will run every day until 4th September 2022.

The event is the first that has been held since 2019, explains Farm owner Nick Laister: "We ran our first ever Fairytale Festival in 2018. It was such a big success for us that we did it again in 2019. We were all set for our third Fairytale Festival in 2020 when it had to be cancelled due to Covid. We didn't feel that we could operate it safely in 2021 either, but we are now happy that we can finally go ahead with our third Fairytale Festival for 2022. And it will be very different to previous years, with a whole range of new activities."

Nick continues: "It is an almost entirely outdoor event, and has a packed and varying programme of games, shows and activities running all day long, all designed for families to join in with. It's going to be great fun and there won't be a dull moment!

With interactive fairy tale storytelling, a puppet show, crafts and summer games, there will be something for everyone, with activities running all day. Activities include:

  • Hansel & Gretel’s Cottage Crafts
  • Canal Boat Challenge
  • Giant Skittles It’s a Knockout Challenge
  • Fairy Tale Interactive Storytelling
  • Fairy Tale Puppet Show Workshop & Show
  • Ugly Duck Race Knockout
  • Fairy Tale Sandcastle Competition
  • Rabbit & Guinea Pig Petting sessions

Nick continues: "Our Fairytale Festival hosts are friendly and waiting to meet you, and will ensure that you have a non-stop action-packed day. And the event will run every day from 22nd July to 4th September 2022."

No special tickets are needed for the Fairytale Festival; just buy standard admission tickets online.

If you visit Fairytale Festival on a weekday, when you buy your ticket you will also be given an opportunity to buy tickets for Walking with Alpacas (Tuesdays and Thursdays) or Pony Pampering (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays). These are at an additional charge and are optional, with limited tickets available.
