Our craft fairs have proved extremely popular with thousands flocking to support our lovely local crafters. On Sunday 5th December we will be holding our biggest craft fair yet! More stalls than ever before will be selling the perfect gifts for Christmas alongside the usual array of yummy hot food with a seasonal twist.

For the children, the big man in red, Santa, will be in residence in our grotto with pre-bookable 5 minute slots available throughout the day (booking opening soon, watch this space). Each paying child will receive a gift at the end of their visit.
