Christmas Gift Fair

Written by Laura Foster on

Christmas table with presents

Looking to get ahead on your Christmas shopping? Then why not head to Creake Abbey this Saturday (8th November) as they are holding a Christmas Gift Fair.

The many and varied stalls will offer a wide range of local gifts from Norfolk baskets and handmade soaps to fine jewellery, wooden bowls, paintings, textiles, drawings and ceramics. There will be demonstrations along with some of the farmers’ market regulars.
The fair is running between 11am -3pm and benefits from free admission & parking. Also whilst there, why not visit the superb café, which will be open from 8.30am serving breakfast, lunch and afternoon teas.

The Creake Abbey shops will also be full of beautiful winter goodies including stylish and practical coats at Christopher William Country, antiques and homewares by Home by Annie Lambert and art & jewellery at Fineline Frames.  Not forgetting the Food Hall, this will be bursting with festive cheeses, hams and other foodie treats!
