Here’s a few reasons why we think you should head to the Fair tomorrow!

1. A boozy Christmas cocktail masterclass with a renowned mixologist

As far as Christmas parties go, a good tipple is a pretty key component. Book into this masterclass with Dom Jacobs, famous mixologist and owner of the Running Horse Cocktail bar in London’s Mayfair and impress your guests with your new skills.

Following closely after drinks, food is probably the next most important element of any Christmas celebration. Pick up top tips from top chefs and go home fully equipped with this professional training to whip up a feast for all your friends and family.

3. Over 85 Stallholders selling artisan food

If you’d rather spend your Christmas on the sofa in your new pyjamas instead of in the kitchen, we’ll have over 85 stallholders at the ready. You’ll be able to buy plenty of delicious produce, ready to take home, serve and eat immediately.

4. An opportunity to buy thoughtful gifts away from the high street

Not only will there be stallholders selling food and drink but also lots of handmade artisan gifts. Perfect for those wanting to avoid the hectic high street and pick up something thoughtful for a loved one.
