Dickensian Theme for Lavenham Christmas Fair 2019

Lavenham Christmas Fair takes place this weekend (Dec 6-8) and this year the village will be all dressed up - Dickensian style!

You will find stalls in the Market Place as well as in Lavenham Guildhall; Little Hall plays host to gorgeous arts and crafts by the Potters and Friends Group, and of course all of the shops, galleries, boutiques, cafes and restaurants will be open. Plus there's free parking and free entry!

What a wonderful way to kickstart the festive season against a backdrop of beautiful buildings, log fires, twinkly lights, hot chocolate, plenty of mulled wine and the Big Man himself!

There will be 50 stalls in Market Place, Lavenham Guildhall and Little Hall selling gifts, crafts, food, wine, toys, jewellery, Christmas wreaths and more plus late night shopping on Friday.
