Fair Features

The Fair is about simple pleasures: things to make, cakes to bake, talents to nurture and gifts to give. We've created the Christmas Theatre to help you do just that. Click here to discover it!

This year’s Fair will bring the pages of the magazine to life at Islington’s BDC from 11 – 15 November. Come along to meet makers, designers, artisans and growers and discover unique gifts to delight your loved ones, as well as inspired ideas and decorations to bring that magical Christmas sparkle to your home.

And if, like us, you think that handmade and homespun are the most important ingredients for creating a magical Christmas, the Fair’s lively programme of talks and demonstrations will prove to be a great source of practical inspiration
