Vicki Usher Founder and Owner of Humble Country Events comments: “I am so excited to be launching Buckinghamshire’s first destination shopping event at the beautiful Claydon Estate. After a tough 12 months for us all, this COVID-safe outdoor event will provide visitors with the chance to get together with family and friends for a relaxing and fun day in the fresh air and to purchase some unusual and beautiful gifts and homewares.”
“My team has carefully curated over 50 independent boutique style businesses – many of whom are based locally, are experts in their field and who are also passionate about making sustainable and environmentally friendly products. We are also keen to encourage people to ‘shop small, support small’ – particularly important after this last year.”
Alexandra Verney, of Claydon Estate comments: “We are delighted to welcome visitors back to Claydon Estate this summer. We look forward to re-launching our programme of events here, starting with Humble Country Fayre in June, and once again seeing the estate abuzz with people enjoying a great day out.”
