Advent Fayre

Posted: Thu, 23 Sep 2021 16:14 by Janet Taylor

New Braunston Advent Fayre launched - virtual and physical -Take Part!

Last year covid forced us to hold a very successful "virtual" Advent Fayre. We missed kicking off the Christmas season in person, but were able to supply lots of Christmas goods to everyone, and raised a good sum for maintaining our ancient church building. More »

This year the Advent Fayre invites you, our local crafts people, artists and artisans to exhibit and sell your products as part of the Advent Fayre, in the village hall, on Saturday 27th November. We expect to have an exciting range of crafts, arts, jewellery, gifts and produce to buy and look at, along with the usual fabulous Christmas goodies the Advent Fayre is famous for.

We will also hold the draw for the festive Advent Fayre Raffle on the day in the hall. Stalls will be free for exhibitors but we ask stall holders for a modest donation based on any sales made. We will publicise stall holders in advance along with links to their websites and product lists. Christmas puddings, Christmas cakes, yule logs, jams, marmalades, chutneys will be available to buy on the day and to order in advance for delivery to your home or to collect at the Fayre.

If you would like to take a stall, large or small please contact Rob or Pat on 07900535250 or email robander961@hotmail.co.uk as soon as possible as space is limited. » Less
