THE FESTIVE FOOD & GIFT FAIR – Sadly this event has to fallen victim of Covid-19 as well and whilst we were desperately trying to put the event on we felt that with cases increasing the responsible thing to do was cancel it. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that we can start getting back to normal sometime next year.

on Wednesday 25th November, 4pm – 8pm

and Thursday 26th November, 10am – 4pm

Tickets will be £5 and will be on sale through a link on this site soon. Advanced tickets only. Tickets will be limited so social distancing guidelines can be followed, half an hour arrival slots will be allocated and all visitors will follow a one way system.

The Fair is committed to creating a safe shopping environment to ensure an enjoyable and successful visit and, in line with government and local authority guidance, a variety of measures will be introduced.  These include:

★ Staggered half an hour arrival time slots
