Clare Christmas fair

Friday 30 November 2018, 5.00pm-8.00pm

Saturday 1 December 2018, 10am-7.00pm

The fabulous Clare Christmas Fair will take place this year in St Peter and St Paul’s Church and NOW ALSO in the Old School Community Centre, both in the heart of Clare.

With over 60 exhibitors selling festive food, drinks and a great selection of gifts this is the Christmas event in Clare and not to be missed!

There will be lots of things for everyone to do and see: lots of music and carols, amazing stilt walkers, Hells Bells Alternative Morris Dancers, a raffle, waffles, chestnuts, mulled wine and Prosecco, Punch and Judy, face painting, magic, the Snow Queen, a fairground ride, a Salvation Army brass band and Father Christmas and his reindeer!

We are delighted to say that the fair will be opened in the atmospheric candlelit church on Friday evening by Terry Waite CBE and, on Saturday evening, the Christmas Lights Switch-On will take place, a fitting finale.

This event is organised by St Peter and St Paul’s Church with the help of Clare Community Association.

A wonderful way to kickstart the festive season with a backdrop of beautiful buildings, log fires, twinkly lights, hot chocolate and plenty of mulled wine!
