After the success of our Easter fair, we’re pleased to announce we will be returning to Worthing Charmandean for Christmas 2022. These fairs will be held in aid of St Barnabas House and we’re so pleased to be able to continue our fundraising efforts for them.
This venue is a large venue with plenty of spacing and high ceilings to allow for lots of air flow. We’ll be monitoring the crowd levels and the layout will be more spaced out than previous years. There is also a cafe/bar, plus special guests including Sussex Ghostbusters. Worthing Town Crier will open the events.
Save the dates –
Christmas Fair – Sunday 4th December, Worthing Charmandean.
We hope to also be able to announce a Brighton Christmas fair later this year.
Applications for our Christmas fair will open 1st September.
2020 was our first year in 8 years that we didn’t hold any in person events. Although this was a very sad decision the safety of our stall holders and visitors has to be a priority and with a proportion of these and our helpers falling into the vulnerable category we feel we couldn’t hold the fairs without them. Additionally with local sponsors not in a position to support us during this time and us not being able to have face painting, singers and many of our magical extras we decided not to hold any markets.
However, we didn’t let that stop us – we held 8 online fairs with thousands of visitors at each, had 10,000 Christmas brochures delivered and shared online and expanded our online Creatives Directory to bigger than ever before.
In 2021 we once again held online fairs at Spring, Summer, Halloween and Christmas and excitingly returned for our first in person fair in 2 years at Worthing Charmandean in aid of St Barnabas house – which raised over £3,000 for them.
We appreciate your support more than ever. See some throwback photos from 2019 on the left.
