Wedding Fairs

The Holt hotel hosts a number of wedding fairs throughout the year. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet all of our recommended local suppliers and learn more about flexible wedding packages which will suit most budgets. There are usually special offers and discounts on the day with the venue and suppliers, too.

Antiques Fairs

Widely respected by dealers and collectors alike, the fair had humble beginnings. Spurred on by the closure of a regular fair in nearby Woodstock, a small group of local antiques dealers decided that, if nobody else was prepared to give them a platform for selling their wares, they’d do it themselves! Since then the fair has grown, not only in size, but also reputation.

Support from popular TV antiques personalities, including Oxfordshire’s Charlie Ross (Antiques Road Trip, Flog it! and Bargain Hunt) has helped raise the event’s profile, but much of the credit must go to the dealers, who consistently bring such high-quality, affordable antiques to The Holt, as well as the many visitors who spread the word about what’s become known as “the best little fair in the country”.

The passing years have cemented Antiques@TheHolt into the annual calendar, and such is the appeal of the event that dedicated collectors now make the trip from across the country, and even from over the Channel, to see what the fair’s dealers have to offer . There are specialists in early English porcelain, furniture, studio and art glass, silver, period jewellery, ceramics and, this November, one of the world’s leading experts in portrait miniatures will be attending. Some dealers hold back choice pieces, just for The Holt, but there’s still plenty of very affordable antiques and collectables on offer.

Woodstock Christmas Market

Join us at The Holt Hotel for the famous Woodstock Christmas Market! Start your Christmas shopping early this year at Oxfordshire’s favourite and possibly largest one day market. Delight in artisan food producers, crafts, and gifts from across the country and further, and buy a host of gifts which you wont find on the high street!

Dates of the 2019 Christmas market will be announced soon.

Murder Mystery Events

The Holt hotel runs several murder mystery events throughout the year. Details of upcoming events will be released shortly.

A Murder at The Holt!

Saturday 11th May 2019

You’re cordially invited to the opening night of Vince Petrocelli’s brand new speakeasy – The Hullabaloo. You don’t want to miss out on this decadent, hedonistic evening packed full of dancing, drinking and socialising, but shhh don’t tell anyone – we’re in the midst of the prohibition!

As the moonshine flows and the evening unfolds, not everything is as it seems. There’s a lover tiff, suspicious guests and rumour has it there’s an FBI agent in the crowd. When a guest goes missing, it up to you to solve the mystery of where Vince gets his moonshine from before somebody dies!

£55 per person for the evening including a three course meal.
£100 per person including dinner, bed and breakfast
