Saturday 11 November 11am — 3pm, free entry, Curry Rivel Village Hall

The United Reformed Church in Curry Rivel is once more hosting their successful Christmas Craft Fair — back by popular demand from stall holders and villagers alike.

With a Dickensian theme the Fair welcomes all visitors from far and wide to come along, enjoy the festive atmosphere with costumed stall holders and musical accompaniment; browse the quality locally handcrafted goods for sale — start (or finish!) your Christmas shopping — why not even treat yourself?.

Refreshments all day served by the 1 st Curry Rivel & Drayton Guides; bacon butties, tea & cakes
Plus a raffle and tombola.

New to the Fair this year is Mimsical Studio — beautiful objects in clay and stained glass; the unique
and original artwork of Kate Norton (recently exhibited at Bow Wharf, Langport); decorative wreaths created with natural materials; examples of Christmas table decorations & garlands — commission orders taken for Christmas; 'All things Elephant' raising funds for the Guides trip to Sri Lanka.

Returning stallholders include pottery from Ellis Pottery of High Ham; beautifully turned wood; jewellery and handbags from Gemasis of Low Ham; small scale wrought iron pieces made by Emma Logan in Stoke-sub- Hamdon; cards; cakes & preserves; painted glass, ceramics and butterflies; fabric gifts from Heart & Home of Curry Rivel, Christmas cakes (made in Curry Rivel), fabric covered boxes, Christmas decorations and novelties for children; kitchen textiles; sculpted crochet work; handpainted gifts and pictures; lots of ideas for gifts for friends and family this Christmas.

There is good disabled access, free parking in the village car park a few metres away. A
warm, friendly atmosphere in which to do your Christmas shopping with refreshments and entertainment too!
*there will not be a fair in 2018 so we advise you buy next year's gifts in advance!
