Save the Children Christmas Fair reaches its 10th birthday

Save the Children Christmas Fair reaches its 10th birthday

The very popular Save the Children Christmas Fair reaches its 10th birthday this year and promises to be bigger and better than ever.

The Fair will be staged on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd December at Leamington Town Hall and has attracted exhibitors from near and far.  Over 60 exhibitors have booked space, many of them for the first time.   Although many are local craftsmen and women, others are travelling from as far afield as Rutland, Suffolk and Surrey – an indication of the growing stature and popularity of the event.

They will be selling a wide range of unique gifts including hand-crafted wooden pens and pencils, glove puppets, stained glass sun catchers, bowties, Christmas wreaths, bespoke stitched pictures from children’s drawings, African jewellery, skin care products, home décor products, homemade fudge, nappy cakes, blown glass pieces and paper flowers.

There will be a giant tombola, a raffle (with a first prize of a three night weekend break for six in a beautiful Cotswold cottage) and refreshments will be available throughout both days.  On Saturday here will be live music on stage and Harbury’s Hereburgh Morris will dance outside in Livery Street.

The Fair is open from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 2nd and 11am to 5pm on Sunday 3rd December, when an added attraction will be the Yuletide Market and Lantern Parade on the Parade.   Admission to the Fair is free although donations are welcome. 

Coventry and Warwickshire law firm Alsters Kelley LLP is again supporting the Fair, something they have done for four years.  Graphic design services has also been donated by Identity Studio.

Cathy Wahlberg, Operations and Finance Member at Alsters Kelley LLP said:  “We are delighted to be supporting this event once again and are pleased to see it reach its 10th birthday.  Save the Children is a well respected charity supporting some of the most deprived and disposed of the world’s children and the local branch do a great job in raising funds to support this vital work”.

Ann Bailey, Secretary of the Leamington, Warwick & Kenilworth branch of Save the Children, who is organising the Fair, said: “We are delighted to be working with Alsters Kelley again and their support, and that of Identity Studio, is very much appreciated.  The Fair has grown from a modest one-day event in 2008 to a bustling two day Fair this year and we have again had to turn away potential exhibitors due to its popularity.  It has become a firm fixture in Leamington’s Christmas preparations and we look forward to bumper crowds this year.”
