Christmas Fairs are being advertised up and down the country of all sizes. From Christmas themed farmers markets to large scale craft and gift events, now is the perfect time to buy some extra special Christmas gifts and to stock up on decorations, table settings and foodie treats.
Being as the Lake District is home to some exceptionally talented crafts people and artists so too excellent food producers, it is no wonder this region is the ideal place for a Christmas fair. Being an exceptionally pleasant place to visit is the icing on the Christmas cake.
Hawkshead, a delightful village in the heart of the Lake District and a great place for a Christmas fair. The Hawkshead Christmas Fair will be taking place on the weekend of Saturday December 3rd 10am-5pm and Sunday the 4th 10am-4pm. The Market House on two floors and the Beatrix Potter Gallery will house the indoor craft and gift stalls as well as outside stalls including food and beverages. There will be over 50 of these in total to peruse during the two day fair.
But really, the Christmas fair is also a festival as live entertainment will be ringing around the village throughout the weekend. There will be choirs, jugglers, stilt walkers and live music that are all sure to get everyone well and truly in the Christmas spirit and create a great weekend for the whole family.
