Stourton Estates to host a Woodland Celebration!

For a normally private estate on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds home to Red Deer, overlooking stunning parkland and lakes – the weekend of 16th September promises to be a fantastic event with something for everyone!

By day there will be plenty to keep the whole family entertained: deer safaris, heaps of locally sourced food, businesses showcasing their products, craft stalls, demonstrations from skilled craftsman such as ironmongery, wood carvings, large kit showcasing timber converters, a great range of activities for children to enjoy plus live music in a wonderful setting of the arboretum.

Come the evening within a marquee positioned on the Old Hall Lawn the venue will host a Party in the Park with the amazing live band ‘The Baltic Donkeys’ there to entertain you with classic hits from the 60’s to the present day along with a fully licensed bar, BBQ with the estates very own venison burgers & a bonfire to top it off!

Not only are there a great range of fantastic value camping package options available, from £65 per pitch for the whole weekend (limited in number & selling fast so book soon!) but tickets are available online separately for the individual elements at www.stourtonestates.co.uk .  In addition if you’d like a bit of glamping luxury for the weekend then there are even bell tents available sleeping 4 or 6 people – fully furnished with beds, duvets, and pillows and bunting!

If you are interested in bringing your business or stall to this event please get in touch via contact@stourtons.co.uk or phone 01507 578236.
