Just gathering together the last remaining items for the Wealden Mid Winter Fair... it's set up day tomorrow, which I really enjoy, although looking at my Studio at the moment it is full of crates and boxes and the prospect of loading them all in the car tomorrow morning is daunting, but luckily this time I have my hubby on hand to help with the heavy stuff.
The Fair is held at Bedgebury Pinetum, in the grounds of Bedgebury Forest, which boasts the most complete collection of conifers in the World, so as you can imagine it's a wonderful place to hold a Christmas Fair. There are over one hundred stall holders selling quality, unusual items from home decor, to gifts, decorations and food, it's a real feast for the eyes.
There are also workshops going on throughout the three days when you can make a pretty vintage brooch or learn to make your own confectionery to give as gifts this Christmas. Chefs from the team at Kent Cookery School will be demonstrating making sweet treats. When you are ready to take a break from the pleasures of shopping there will be an array of foods on offer from Afternoon tea, to a pop up Gastro Pub and a Cafe Marquee with up market street type vendors from the Wild Food Catering Company, Spade & Spoon and Coffee Real.
And to add to the festive feel there will be lots of twinkly lights and of course the wonderful Carol Singers that wander through the Fair to entertain you. So if you are able to make it please pop by the Maygreen Fairies stand to say hello, we'd love to see you!
