Calling all families! Couples – young and old! Dogs, grandparents, aunties, uncles, brothers and sisters too! Get your diaries open and ‘pen in’ the date.
Join us in our second year of this highly popular family event where the House and Grounds will be thrown open to the public and visitors can enjoy a range of entertainment whilst being immersed in the History of the Estate.
Visitors to this year’s Jamboree will be treated to a host of family fun and festivities. Something for everyone, young or old. Explore the House and discover Stansted’s family history through Napoleonic re-enactments and links to the Battle of Waterloo.
The weekend features cricket matches between the Royal Lancers, I Zingari and Stansted Park’s very own team. Grab some lunch, and perhaps a glass of Pimms, from our wonderful vendors, pull up a deck chair, sit back and watch the game unfold.
