Wrexham Christmas fair

It’s easy to get carried away at the Wrexham Christmas fair

‘Tis the season to be jolly! It’s now just over a month until Christmas and discounting the madness that is Black Friday, many of us are starting to enjoy the more traditional seasonal activities that North Wales has to offer.

One of my favourite festive attractions is to visit a Christmas Fair. Hot chocolate, handcrafted gifts and delicious food; is there a better way to get yourself into the Christmas spirit?

If you are looking for a local fair with ‘wow factor’ the annual Christmas Fair, held at the Catrin Finch Centre in Glyndwr University, on Saturday 12th November, could be just what need.

Like all of the Christmas events we’ve featured on this blog, the Christmas Fair is another perfect example of communities and families getting together in the spirit of the season.

Orgainised by Nightingale House, the fair is a glittering paradise of quaint stalls, musical entertainment and delicious refreshments including homemade mince pies, cakes and sandwiches all freshly prepared by the Hospice’s Cafe Cwtch.

The wintery effects perfectly capture the seasonal vibe but for me, the main attraction has to be the arrival of Santa himself. On horseback.

Yes, you did read that correctly. The most famous man of the festive season will also be dropping in to meet younger visitors, hand out gifts and accept Christmas lists.

The Christmas Fair is open from 11am to 2pm and considering that the entrance fee is just 50p, you really have got a perfect festive day out!

I hope to see you all there.
