What's On

Throughout the year Stamford provides a great range of events to suit every taste.

Burghley Park hosts numerous specialist fairs and exhibitions, open-air music concerts and a film festival. Autumn brings the largest and most famous event, The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, four days of exciting, international eventing plus a huge and world famous shopping village, guaranteeing a fantastic day out for the whole family.

And for those who enjoy all the fun of the fair, the period leading up to Easter sees the annual Lenten Street Fair, when the whole of the centre of town is given over to the lights, music, thrills and spills of a proper old-fashioned fair. A huge number of rides provide fun for all; from the tiniest tots to extremely brave adults! So roll up, roll up, all the fun is here!

In between these major events the town hosts numerous smaller exhibitions, antiques and craft fairs, art and sculpture shows, French markets and beer festivals. No matter when you visit, there's sure to be something to keep you entertained.
