More than 40 stallholders gathered in Riddlesworth Hall on Friday and Saturday.

The traders were taking part in the Riddlesworth Hall Autumn Gift and Food Fair, with everything from art and crafts to gin and vintage clothing on offer.

Hundreds of visitors poured in for a spot of early Christmas shopping and to enjoy the ambience at the majestic hall on the Riddlesworth Estate.

A former country house, Riddlesworth Hall now serves as a boarding school.

It was designed by architect Thomas Leverton as a Georgian-style three-storey manor house in 1792 and is surrounded by 12 hectares of parkland. It was listed by English Heritage as a Grade II building on July 21, 1951.

Locally-produced food and drink was also on offer during the two-day event, with the entry fee of £3 in aid of Musical Keys Charity, a Norwich-based charity which helps people of all ages with disabilities and additional needs across Norfolk and the surrounding region.

Proceeds also went to the school association, the RHSA, which is open to all parents and guardians of pupils in the school, as well as current teachers, support staff and former pupils.

The Riddlesworth Hall Autumn Gift Fair is well established, having been started by the RHSA in the mid-1990s.

Riddlesworth Hall is a beautiful setting, with welcoming organisers and a stunning array of gifts to purchase.
