This year, our popular event is expanding to offer a Family Fun Day at which participants will find live music, craft stalls, games and even more brilliant Suffolk food suppliers.

We’re offering two ways for you to enjoy Suffolk’s favourite foodie event:

Option 1: Walk and Event Village

Lady Tollemache, President of Ormiston Families, is welcoming guests back to the beautiful Helmingham Hall estate for our famous event’s walk through the 400-acre park where herds of red and fallow deer roam. Stands offering light refreshments will keep you hydrated along your ramble.

Towards the end of the near-six-mile walk, you will enter our Event Village. Head into the estate barn for a drink from Fishers Gin bar and James White Juices, with snacks from local suppliers to hand.

In the Event Village, you can try your hand at archery, geo-tagging and axe-throwing with East Coast Adventures, or simply sit back and enjoy the live music of local bands. Guests will find a selection of craft and food stands from some of Suffolk’s finest independent suppliers.

Ticket holders of this option will also have access to the famous Helmingham Hall gardens, where they can explore the herbaceous borders, walled kitchen garden, herb, knot, rose and wild gardens.

Option 2: Event Village Only

We want Walk With a Fork to be more family-friendly than ever this year, so we have included a second option to purchase tickets for direct entry to our Event Village, saving little legs the effort of the six-mile ramble.

Open from 12pm, families will have access to:

  • Live music from local bands on the Fishers Stage, sponsored by Fishers Gin
  • A chance to explore the range of independent craft stalls
  • Food and drink stalls from local producers
  • Archery, axe-throwing, geo-tagging and other lawn games

We are excited to be developing an already-established and popular fundraising event in 2023. We look forward to welcoming families to an enjoyable day while raising money for Ormiston Families’ support services across the East of England.
