Business as Usual...

With only three days to go before the Vintage & Handmade Christmas Fair in Chipping Sodbury there is a flurry of activity going on across the land as our merry band of members prepare themselves for our Christmas bonanza. That is not the only flurry that is happening around the land and if the weather reports are correct.. a flurry of snow could land anywhere over the weekend. We would just like to reassure our visitors and fair members that it will be business as usual and it will take a lot more than a few icy flakes to keep us away from this long awaited date on the calendar. May we also remind anyone who plans to come along.. that the fair is on a SUNDAY this time so please don't turn up on Saturday .. because you'll have a long wait ahead of you until the doors open at 10.00 a.m on Sunday unless you bring a sleeping bag!
So.. with true British grit and determination.. we'll be there come what may.. come rain, shine or just a little flurry!

On the map

Greetings folks and fellow fair dwellers.. it is only three weeks now before our 6th Original Vintage & Handmade Fair and you may have thought we had nodded off, but actually we have been rather busy drawing up plans for our next bonanza and welcoming many new members to our Christmas Fair, including the logistics of working out how to accommodate everyone! This year we will have 40 stalls of vintage and handmade finery on offer and a wonderful diverse collection of quality items to offer the discerning folk who flock to our fairs.

Here we have the final floor plans which includes a new room for us this year.. the elegant Charter Suite upstairs.

This room has enabled us to move our tea room and facilities upstairs so to provide more room in the main hall downstairs and provide a more practical area for serving teas. We will also have 7 new stalls upstairs as well as several in the main hall and lounge area and the stage area will also be utilised.

The upstairs can be accessed by two staircases, one at the entrance and another in the lounge, with a lift to help whisk visitors and members up the the first floor!

We can't wait to welcome old friends and new to our cracking Christmas fair at Chipping Sodbury Town Hall 10 - 4 p.m Sunday 28th November and look forward to seeing you all soon!
