Roll up, roll up! It's almost time...

....for the best Christmas Fair in the area....yes folks, in just a few weeks time the Original Vintage & Handmade Christmas Fair will be rolling into good old Chipping Sodbury town once again.

This popular event is always a joy to attend with over 40 stalls brimming with scrumptious ideas for Christmas gifts (or a treat for yourself!).
Showcasing some of the best vintage dealers, artists & creative designer-makers from the South-West & beyond, it is a day not to be missed.

With everything from vintage china & glass, toys & games, books & ephemera, fabrics & haberdashery, home wares & more, plus handmade hats, quilts, notebooks, cards, purses, bags, soaps, ceramics, dolls, heritage plant seeds & even Christmas cakes, you should be able to find a unique gift for everyone on your Christmas list in a friendly & relaxed atmosphere.
So much better than the same old high street commercial gifts & at affordable prices too!

Entrance is just £1.00 (children free) & there will be free Christmassy goody bags for the first 100 visitors of the day.

There is plenty of free parking all around the town which has a fabulous High Street filled with independent shops, so make a day of it!

What would a day out be without a refreshing cup of tea or coffee with a slice of delicious home made cake all served on vintage china in our traditional tearoom in aid of charity by The Ladies of Rangeworthy.

We hope to see you there for an enjoyable start to the festive season.
