Our event space is best in show
In recent years, the parkland at Ragley has played home to a spectacle of events, ranging from Kirstie Allsopps Handmade Fair and The Midlands Air Festival, to MLE’s Firework Champion Shows and The Game Fair. Each event is a fantastic showcase for hobbyists, enthusiasts, and families to enjoy, with like-minded individuals.
The events spaces on the estate, boast large areas of level land, perfect for event villages, pop-up exhibitions, craft centres, food halls and more.
The largest site, West Park, currently acts as the main event village for The Game Fair’s shopping villages, archery experiences, clay and airgun shooting ranges as well as arenas, kitchen theatres, food halls and demonstration areas. For smaller scale events, Payne’s Close, The Lakeside & Ragley’s Polo Field make for excellent sites and car parking fields. They have also been used on many occasions for aerial displays, parachute landings and firework competitions.
Birmingham, Coventry, Worcester and Nottingham are within a 50 mile drive, as well as hugely populated tourist destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon and Bicester. The estate also has easy access links to London, thanks to our close proximity to the M40.
For daytime shows, the historic Ragley Hall can be opened as an additional element to your event: guests are able to step into the history of the home, lovingly retold by our tour guides. The addition of the house and gardens will give your guests an exclusive opportunity to visit the house, which is no longer open on a regular basis to the public and will add a unique experience for your visitors as they enjoy this unique property.
