It's the first of November and that means it's finally the month of our Christmas Fayre!

You can find all of the event details right here.

It really is our favourite event of the year, getting to fill our shop with gifts handmade by talented local craftspeople, and opening our doors to plenty of new and old visitors feels like such a treat.


As we love it so much, we've gone all out on this year's plans. We're even hearing rumours of a surprise visit from the man himself, if he's able to get the time off from preparations at the North Pole.

As we're busy making like elves and getting things ready in time for our big day, we thought we'd share with you a couple of updates ahead of the fayre.

First off, we want to announce a storytelling session! We know events like this can get a little boring for little ones, so we'll be having a special festive story time at 4pm in our Children's area.

Next, there are just two stalls left! If you run a small business, or you'd just like the opportunity to sell your creations or promote what you do, get in touch by giving us a call on 01761 451777 or sending an email to

Finally, we'd like to remind you that The Full Stop Cafe will be serving takeaway food only on the 23rd of November. This includes the time before the fayre begins. This is so that the Events team can get to work on setting up the stalls right away.

Keep an eye on our social media pages for updates leading up to the event, we'll make sure to keep you all as informed as we can on what's in store!
