Jesmond Pool’s Christmas Craft Fair will take place on Sunday 11 December, with Santa himself as VIP guest for the day.

This is the second year Jesmond Pool has hosted a large-scale Christmas Fair, and organisers hope to attract members of the wider public as well as regular customers who enjoy a broad range of activities at the community managed building on St George’s Terrace.

Over 20 stall holders will be shaking out their tinsel and setting up shop on the day, offering a wide range of Christmas gift ideas. From candles to cushions, baby wear, toys, jewellery, children’s books and even a cake stall – shoppers will be able to pick up a few thoughtful handmade gifts, support local businesses and have the satisfaction of ticking a few names off the festive shopping list!

Santa’s Grotto will be in operation from 2 – 4pm, only £3 entry which includes a gift for every young visitor.

Donna Rumney, Duty Manager at Jesmond Pool, and event organiser, said:

“Following the success of last year’s event, we’re looking forward to another fun-filled afternoon! As well as great gift ideas, there’s the chance to sit and enjoy some tasty treats, and we’ll have lots of fun for kids with glitter tattoos, carols and colouring. We know Santa is gearing up for a very busy festive season, and he’s planning to enjoy some down time in the pool and sauna at Jesmond Pool, after the event!”
