Hello everybody, and welcome to this weeks blog, which features news of our Christmas Fayre on December 1st.
The Fayre is our contribution to the Bolsover Christmas Festival & Lantern Parade, and will take place in Old Bolsover Yard from 10am to 5pm - or possibly even later.
We will be featuring 5 craft small businesses as well as our own Gallery, and there is a special 6th stall which I will tell you about later on.
So let me introduce you to the stall holders -
- J&S Crafts - knitted toys, fairy door & bags
- Handmade by Helen - handmade crochet cowls, hats, blankets & bunting
- Ann Gray - traditional hand made adult & childrens aprons, Japanese type aprons, Swedish peg bags, Christmas stockings & a few tote bags
- Dragonfly Cottage Crafts - hand painted plaques set on reclaimed wood
- Ka'vana Emporium - handmade bags, clothing accessories
In addition we will have with us - Brimming With Beer, from Brimington, with their craft beers, providing you with the opportunity to purchase a bottle or two.
And if all of that wasn't enough, then we also have Creswell Colliery Brass Band with us during the day, with a programme of Festive music & Christmas Carols to join in with.
Hopefully, we might have some of our new tenants in residence by then, but our Gallery will be open all day with a wide selection of crafts that would make ideal Christmas presents.
I can confidently predict that we will be visited by the Bolsover Town Crier during the day, and then there is the Lantern Parade to round off the day.
So what could be more exciting than that to 'kick off' your Christmas celebrations?
More details in the weeks to come, but make sure that your plans for the day include time to visit Old Bolsover Yard & support our crafts people, and enjoy a quiet drink. whilst 'foot tapping' to the brass band.
Don't forget as well that the Beehive Cafe will be open on the day serving teas, coffees & lots of goodies.
