Brought to you by The Fairy Tale Fair and the Northbrook Friends of St Barnabas fundraising group ‘So This is Christmas’ is a festive craft and design fair that will feature over 70 high quality craft and design stalls plus lots of magical extras. The fair is in aid of St Barnabas Hospice which is a local independent charitable hospice located in Worthing, Sussex.

There will be many performances during the day including a live choir, Patcham Youth Silver band and a visit from Santa himself! Don’t miss Elsa and Tinkerbell between 10.30am and 1pm. Please see our blog post here for full details of all performances and entertainment through the day. Also stop and relax in the cafe and keep the kids amused with face painting too! Magic Martin and his assistant Nicky will also be joining us for a touch of magic and balloon modelling.
Our fair is a real community event, we welcome families and all ages to come along and enjoy the crafty creations and treats! The majority of our stall holders are local makers and we hope that you can come along to support and meet them and their wonderful creations. It is also a unique chance to purchase handmade, one off gifts that you certainly won’t find on the high street!
Over 70 craft, design and vintage stalls selling handmade or hand designed gifts and festive creations. Jewellery, prints, cards, knitted items, felted items, chocolates, decorations, children’s items, baby clothes, art, vintage accessories… we’ll have it all covered! Along with other magical extras on the day too!
