All proceeds and profits from Heveningham Hall Country Fair go into a charitable trust which not only funds many and various cases of need locally, but also funds a local dementia unit as well as contributing substantially towards building a new centre for a Community Care Nursing Fund where the local hospital has been closed. It also supports local schools with equipment.
Heveningham Hall was first built in 1658. Between 1778 and 1781 it was substantially rebuilt, by architects Sir Robert Taylor and James Wyatt, resulting in the strikingly wide exterior and the interior’s astonishing neoclassical rooms. The landscape was designed by Capability Brown in 1782, with ground-works also beginning in that year, but with his death in 1783 the landscape project soon faded. In 1995 the project to complete these plans began and renowned landscape architect Kim Wilkie was brought in to help accomplish this. Kim went on to help create many other landscape projects on the estate with the lake to the north of the Hall being a notable example.
