Blenheim Palace - Tattoo and Country Fair

In 2005, Blenheim Palace played host to a spectacular annual tattoo and country fair in the grounds of this most magnificent of country estates.

Set in the heart of Oxfordshire next to the beautiful village of Woodstock and with the beating drums of the first Duke of Marlborough echoing around its magnificent façade, Blenheim Palace was the perfect setting for this rural and military extravaganza.

The Blenheim Palace Tattoo and Country Fair took place over three days, Friday 15th – Sunday 17th July, and is believed to have attracted over 30,000 visitors.

The Country Fair had a main arena (The Churchill Arena); a Market Square, offering the very best in traditional country produce and crafts; and five outlying areas which were strongly themed for those interested in classic vehicles, country living, horticulture, field sports, animals and, of course, shopping.

When this event was announced His Grace The Duke of Marlborough said “With the outstanding success of the CLA Game Fair here at Blenheim last summer, it was evident to us that there is a huge demand for just such an event to be held on an annual basis at Blenheim. Our celebrations surrounding the 300th anniversary of the Battle of Blenheim proved equally successful and it made sense to combine these two highly successful events into the new Blenheim Palace Tattoo and Country Fair. We look forward to the launch of this event in July and to creating a wonderful opportunity for everyone to enjoy the powerful combination of country and military life”
