After a hugely successful launch, Park Fair will return to the Oxfordshire countryside for its second year in 2023.
Designed for the new generation of rural tastemakers, Park Fair will host a collection of stylish modern brands across the weekend festival, including the global cosmetics powerhouse Bobbi Brown, iconic fashion capsule, Jigsaw, artisanal womenswear collection, Pink City Prints, and British lifestyle label, Seraphina London. The fair will welcome visitors to Great Tew Estate on Friday, 30 June, Saturday, 01 July, and Sunday, 02 July.
Charlie Root, Marketing Manager at Bobbi Brown, said: “We’re thrilled to announce our participation in this year’s Park Fair. Our PRO Makeup Artists will be on hand to offer free 15-Minute Makeovers and Mini Masterclasses, sharing expert tips & tricks for all things beauty. We can’t wait to welcome visitors!”
Live music, workshops, and unlimited fairground rides will create a festival atmosphere to complement the curated shopping experience. The whole family is invited thanks to a childrens’ activity schedule by TARKA London and doggy daycare from Wag Works.
“2022 was a mammoth year for us. It was a dream come true to bring so many of our favourite British brands to the Cotswolds countryside and host almost 3,000 people over the weekend for the very first Park Fair,” said Lucy Drinkwater, Founder of Park Fair.
“We have even bigger ambitions for this year. Expect to enjoy more entertainment, explore even more tempting brands, and sample some of the finest flavours in the UK. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests for our opening on Friday, 30 June!”
Guests will have unprecedented access to the rolling parkland at the Great Tew Estate for the weekend, including a curated wellness area offering a range of complimentary treatments and a stylish lounge space presented in partnership with Savills, renowned for its real estate expertise.
Charles Elsmore-Wickens, Head of Savills Residential Team in the Cotswolds, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Park Fair for 2023 and thoroughly looking forward to welcoming guests to the Savills lounge, which will be an opportunity to relax in comfortable and stylish surroundings.
“Our local teams have lived and worked in the area for many years, and it is a real pleasure to be a part of this new and exciting addition to the Cotswold social scene.”
An impressive culinary lineup will see Farang London bring their award-winning Thai flavours to Oxfordshire and Pizza Boys Bicester share their passion for the classic Neapolitan style pizza.
“We’re really excited to be part of Park Fair 2023. Oxfordshire is where it all started for us, and we love coming back to share our fiery flavours with old and new friends,” said Sebby Holmes, Head Chef at Farang London. “Expect some of the favourites from our restaurant in Highbury as well as some special additions.”
Montrose Group, the brilliant design and construction team behind the latest Daylesford development, will be on hand to share their expertise on recreating a modern Cotswolds aesthetic.
“We are thrilled to have been invited to partner with the fantastic team at Park Fair for their second year hosting this wonderful family event,” said Emily Tarbox, Director of Montrose Group. “We are so excited to be part of this new and unique type of festival and to contribute to building on the huge success of their inaugural event back in 2022.”
