Wenlock’s magical Fayre

For many people, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a visit to Much Wenlock Christmas Fayre, which this year takes place on Saturday 4 December.

Organisers are delighted to be back with this much-loved event which offers something for eve-ryone

The little market town is beautiful at any time of year, but it really comes alive during the fes-tivities of the Fayre, as the streets are packed with eager shoppers, excited children, street en-tertainers, and creative stallholders offering a wide range of goodies.

Shopping can be a tiring business, so visitors can also enjoy a variety of fortifying snacks and beverages on the Church Green and around the town, as well as at the inns and cafes who help to create a festive buzz.

The event is traditionally opened by a special guest, whose identity is being kept under wraps at the moment, to be revealed nearer the time.

Throughout the day there will be choirs, children’s activities and rides, brass bands and a wide range of other entertainment.  The day ends with a glittering candlelit procession and the har-monious sound of the community and visitors joining together to sing carols in The Square.

The Fayre officially starts at 10am, but many of Wenlock’s friendly shopkeepers will open their doors before then for those who want to get a head start on choosing the ideal gift.

Fayre chair Lesley Ingram adds, “All the events and stalls are outside this year as, with Covid still a factor, we thought it best to err on the side of caution. It means everyone can feel comforta-ble while they enjoy this wonderful traditional event”

The special park and ride service is a hassle-free way to travel to the Fayre, as many of the roads are closed to traffic – for full details about what to look forward to, visit www.wenlockchristmasfayre.org.uk
