Welcome to the new 2018 Great Ellingham Teddy Bear Festival site.
Since 2004, a committed group of volunteers has raised in excess of £57,000 for local charities, organisation and groups, but the main focus has always been about bringing the community together for a fortnight of events centering around our Teddy Bear Trail.
Join us in 2018 for what we hope is our biggest trail yet!
TEDDY BEAR TRAIL 2018
With more that 60 bears along the trail last year, we are excited to get to increase our numbers in 2018. The trail runs from 30 June through 15 July. Register your bear early!
LEARN TO BUILD A BEAR
We know this bear building workshop will give you all the tools you need to create magical bears along the trail. Get tips, meet your neighbours and have a cuppa.
SELL OR BUY
Opening day is always exciting. The whole Teddy Team will be on hand to help your find you way to new treasures. Meet us at the Tea Tent for a little cake, too!
Since 2011, the Teddy Bear Festival has been raising funds for groups and organizations as part of our ongoing commitment to support our local community. More than £57,000 has been donated over the years and you can find out the 2017 recipients and find out how you can be involved by clicking here:
