What's on next ...

Saturday 25 May 9am-3pm

Chichele College, Higham Ferrers

A unique and beautiful setting in which garden lovers can indulge. Not quite Chelsea but homespun and community minded.

Our annual fair is held in the ancient walled medieval styled garden of Chichele College and the adjoining Duchy Barn Garden. A variety of stalls will be selling plants, garden related fare and offering horticultural advice.

This year our theme is wildflowers and pollinators with an exhibition of local school children’s art in the Chichele College building celebrating their importance. With entertainment, refreshments from the NAAFI van and willow weaving demonstrations, there is much to enjoy whatever your age. It's a Farmer’s Market morning, so the church bells will ringing too.

The Blue Plaque Trail

We were delighted to launch our new Blue Plaque Trail at the Mayor's Market for the Coronation weekend in 2023. Thank you to everyone who came to chat and pick up a copy of the Blue Plaque Trail leaflet.

Two years in the making, this trail is another way to find out more about the history of our beautiful medieval town.

WALK around the town centre with your leaflet. It highlights the blue plaques that tell the story of the people and places that shaped its history. 

DISCOVER the fascinating stories, hidden behind the snippets on the blue plaques, about the people and places in Higham's past on our Blue Plaque Trail website 

More copies of the leaflet are available from the Town Hall and at our events. Or you can print one from the Blue Plaque Trail website
