Now in its seventh year, the Fair will house over 600 companies and exhibitors this year, all selling unique products ranging from chocolates, wine and cheese to beautiful handcrafted gifts.

As well as a great day for shopping and getting ready for Christmas, the Fair also offers a great day out with families and friends. There will be festive talks and demonstrations throughout the whole event.
