This event has been something of an epic in the area in the past. It went somewhat downhill for a few years but is back, smaller but with restored quality. There are 7 or 8 large marquees with arts and crafts, many of them local but not all; fashion - some of it new designer start-up and so well worth a look; food (cheeses, pickles, honey and the like) and what you might call 'stocking fillers'. There's entertainment of various sorts - a band, puppets, glass-blowing, weaving and spinning - and various little food outlets around the site. This isn't a circus or a fayre and at times I do wonder about its identity. It could do with a little more marketing savvy, some on-site attraction that keeps the tradition but bumps up the attraction. Dogs, dancing, dancing dogs maybe! I like it, I'll be there again this year. It's a good afternoon out and you could come home with some of the oddest Christmas presents imaginable!
