About The Country Living Christmas Fairs...



Celebrate a Country Living Christmas and enjoy the perfect festive day out in style at the must-attend event of the season. The Christmas Fair is returning once again to its three beautiful locations in London, Glasgow and Harrogate – the perfect outing to kick-start the season’s festivities!

You’ll find unique gifts for friends and family, home styling advice, beautiful handmade decorations and tempting food and drink made by small artisan producers – and it’s all under one roof.

Discover a selection of inspiring food demonstrations in the CL Kitchen from a line-up of celebrity chefs, workshop sessions hosted by our expert crafters as well as entertaining talks by members of the Country Living editorial team on everything from decorating to being greener and more sustainable.

Head over to the Country Living Christmas table where you can create delicious cocktails, canapes, as well as perfecting your table scaping skills just in time for the festivities! The joyous live music will keep you entertained throughout the Fair and once you have ticked off your gift list, complete your day out with a well deserved tipple at The Festive Bar.

So, come and enjoy a magical and memorable family get-together and celebrate the start of the season with Country Living.
