Frost Fair at Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge

Dec 16th to Dec 17th Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge

The View (reduced) There will be local craft stalls to browse, providing the perfect antidote to online shopping and busy high streets. The Epping Forest setting will become a traditional festive scene with seasonal refreshments available at the pop-up après-ski terrace, and there will be seasonal songs, storytelling, a woodland trail and a visit from the Frost Queen on her woodland sleigh. Children can have plenty of fun with the ‘activi-ski pass’, a £4 ticket providing 5 seasonal craft activities. Otherwise, admission is free.
