ABF The Soldiers' Charity Michaelmas Fair 2023

Thursday 2nd November 2023 10am-3pm

The Michaelmas Fair in aid of ABF the Soldiers' Charity is the perfect occasion to start your Christmas preparations. Brimming with superb stalls from throughout the South West with items not usually found on the High Street in the stunning setting of Powderham Castle! The Earl and Countess of Devon's beautiful home will be filled with an array of stalls selling a wide variety of food, gifts and stocking fillers. This is a chance to do some early Christmas shopping whilst enjoying the inside of the castle!

There will also be stallholders in the castle courtyard to tempt you!

Our sponsors, Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood auctioneers and valuers, will be on hand providing free valuations on your jewellery, watches, militaria and silver so dig through your attic and bring along your hidden treasures.

Powderham's other attractions such as the Country Store and the Powderham Farm Shop will be open, along with the Orangery Restaurant and Courtenay Cafe. 

Early Bird tickets are £3.50 or £5 on the door. 

The Fair is open from 10am-3pm

Parking is free

We regret no dogs inside the castle except assistance dogs.

There is limited disabled parking in the castle courtyard for blue badge holders.
