Quorn Events and Leisure
Like most active villages, Quorn has always
loved fetes and carnivals. We include information and photographs
recalling village events, often taking place in the Stafford Orchard
park. These include Jubilees, celebratory occasions, and the many
festivals which have occurred over the years.
