A major Christmas event is set to open its doors again for the 30th time next month.

The Blackthorpe Barn Christmas festival on the Rougham Estate showcases some of the country's most talented artists and craft-makers, while featuring everything from decorations, wreaths, aromatics and wraps to gift ideas in its Country Christmas shop.

George Agnew, joint owner of Blackthorpe Barn and Rougham Estate said: “I am so pleased that we are getting back to a face-to-face event again, it’s going to be fantastic.

"I can’t believe how quickly 30 years have flown by.

"There has been a lot of changes, we always try to evolve things and this year we have created more space for the crafts, to allow everyone to feel comfortable, and we have extended the Courtyard Café with more covered areas for all to enjoy.
