Upwell Playing Field


Our Car Boots have now started and take place every Thursday. Don't forget we have a special boot fair scheduled for June 2, when Upwell also holds its Village Mega Sale, with sellers across the village pitching stalls on their front-yards.

Details of our 2023 Horse & Pony Shows are on the Upwell Playing Field Horse & Pony Club Facebook page


This year's Party In The Park and Summer Fair will be held over the long Bank Holiday Weekend of 4/5 June to celebrate Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee. We look forward to seeing you there! More details will be shared soon. If you would like to display your vehicle or engine, please download and complete the PDF form below.

Upwell Playing Field is a registered charity, run by the Upwell Playing Field Committee.
Our aims are simple: to provide and maintain 2.5 acres of open space for use by all ages and abilities in our community.


We are almost totally reliant on community support/funding for all financial aspects of running the field, our new sports pavilion, which can be hired for private events here, and the children’s play area.


All funds raised from our events go towards the constant upkeep of the field and facilities.

  • From April to mid-October, we run a weekly Thursday-morning  Car Boot

  • Across the summer, we have Horse & Pony shows, inhand and ridden showing, with end-of-season presentation

  • Each year, in early July, we host Party in the Park with live music from local bands, a BBQ and bar, and the following day we put on the Summer Fair with stalls, games, displays, BBQ, bar, refreshments, rides, a dog show and a great display of classic and vintage vehicles of all types.


Upwell Playing Field was registered as a charity on 11th July 1962, but it began life as Upwell Parish Rooms. The parish rooms are long gone, but the original conveyance document for the playing field is dated 8th May 1957. The then ‘guardians’ (it wasn’t registered as a charity right at the beginning) of the parish rooms invested money raised by the sale of the rooms and gave the playing field to the community. Today’s Upwell Playing Field Committee still receives an income and interest generated by the parish rooms investment and the Upwell Playing Field Committee placed the parish rooms as an associated charity with the Charity Commission so that both are linked.


You can find out more details about the Upwell Playing Field Committee here. We are always looking for more volunteers and meet on the second Tuesday of every month!


There are a few rules that we need to enforce to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment of this precious open space. You can read more about them here.


We look forward to seeing you at Upwell Playing Field, New Road, Upwell, Norfolk PE14 9AB. You can contact us by emailing here (rosdshorting@talktalk.net) or by calling 01945 773604
