Hall Place Christmas Craft Fair

Due to the current Covid situation we are sorry to advise that Hall Place will not be running its popular annual indoor Christmas Craft Fair this year. This is a sad decision, as this is a popular annual event and the usual start to our Christmas calendar. However, we need to continue to do all we can to keep Hall Place & Gardens a Covid secure environment for our visitors. We look forward to inviting all our stall holders back next year.

We are planning to hold two additional Farmers Markets running on Saturday 21 November  and Saturday 19 December 10 – 2pm where you can stock up on your favourite treats in readiness for the festive season .
