Park Fair 2023


Last year we were invited to the inaugural Park Fair at the Great Tew Estate. Designed to attract ‘rural tastemakers’ (aka The Chipping Norton Set) we arrived to find a huge field crested by a vintage helter-skelter, dotted with foodie stalls and too-tempting cocktail pitstops.

In large white marquees we found fabulous and unusual homewares, fashion, beauty and wellbeing brands, all brought together in one bucolic setting. Imagine being at your most stylish friend’s house and wondering how she sourced all her beautiful, striking and unique pieces. She probably picked them up last year at Park Fair.

In all, nearly 3,000 visitors were hosted over the weekend and 2023’s installation promises to be even bigger and better. After all, at what other country show might you find makeup artists from Bobbi Brown offering free mini-makeovers and masterclasses in all things beauty? Or Michelin-awarded Thai food from Farang London on offer alongside local favourites, Pizza Boys Bicester? So far, organisers have revealed there will be interiors inspiration from Montrose Group, sharing their ‘how-to’s on creating the modern Cotswold aesthetic; fashion from Pink City Prints, Jigsaw and Seraphina London; and music, family entertainment and activities, with more to be announced in the coming months.

Expect a luxe-chill atmosphere as the ultimate in curated shopping meets family-friendly festival. Kids – and adults, too – will love the unlimited fairground rides, there’s doggy day care on hand and plenty of spaces to relax and enjoy the vibes, the music and the general sense of fun.

Park Fair will be taking place at the Great Tew Estate 30 June – 2 July
