The Convent will once again host its Christmas Fair in the historical setting of the Convent to raise money for locally registered charities.

It will be held on Thursday 24th November 2016, between Midday and 7pm. 

Entrance is £2 for adults and children 12 years and under will get in free.

This year’s support will go to The Calpe House Charitable Trust, a charity that impacts on such a wide cross section of the community.

The doors open at 12 noon, and once inside you will find 40 seasonal stalls. Many are run by local charities as a part of their own fund raising effort, offering an array of crafts, gifts, Christmas cards and decorations.

In the Cloister you will find a café offering refreshments throughout the afternoon.

Jazz Friends will be playing Festive music throughout the afternoon, culminating in St. Paul's School Choir singing Christmas carols at 6 pm.

Mulled wine and mince pies will be provided by the Red Cross Committee for you to enjoy whilst you listen to the singing.

Santa will also be in his Grotto from 2pm offering gifts for the children.

The fair will host two great raffles. The first, a Honda PCX 125cc motorcycle kindly donated once again by Bassadone Motors; Tickets cost £2 each and will be available at the Fair, and also at The Piazza on Thursday 10th November. The second, on the day will offer many prizes donated by local businesses. Both raffles will be drawn at 6.30 pm on the day.

There is something for everyone, so come along and join the Christmas Spirit whilst supporting local charities.
