Dare we say it…Christmas is coming, and it’s set to come early to Durham, thanks to St Cuthbert’s Hospice, as they host their annual Christmas Fair on Saturday, November 18th at Framwellgate School from 11am to 2pm.
The popular fair will be bigger and better as it heads to the new venue and hospice staff, volunteers and even some of Santa’s elves are busy transforming the fabulous venue into a winter wonderland.
Highlights will include stalls selling an array of unique Christmas gifts, as well as a chocolate and bottle tombola, a raffle and lots of tasty treats, fun and games. Ice Princesses and Father Christmas will make an extra special appearance, with good boys and girls able to visit Father Christmas in his Grotto. Music will be provided by a community choir and Durham Miners Brass Band.
Helen Smurthwaite, Community and Events Fundraiser at St Cuthbert’s Hospice, said: “The Christmas Fair is a much loved event at St Cuthbert’s and it’s always a pleasure to welcome people to celebrate the festive season with us. We’re excited to be heading to a new venue. This has allowed us to invite even more stallholders and bring even more festive fun.”
“With so much on offer it’s a great chance to get a head start on your Christmas shopping, whilst supporting St Cuthbert’s Hospice. All monies raised will go directly towards providing outstanding care free of charge to people in County Durham affected by life limiting illnesses.”
Admission to the Christmas Fair is via a charity donation.
