Lots to share on Ye Olde upcoming Christmas Fayre, coming to a Plaza near you on Saturday 13 Dec from around about 11:30 until 4 pm (note earlier start time than previously announced). We have news of the line-up, an exciting competition for stallholders, and a last call for the chance to book a stall.
A big hello to the dozens of you who have recently signed up as subscribers to this website after meeting panel members at the recent Buy it Local event: thanks for your interest, and feel free to say hi to us on Facebook and twitter!
A festive mix of new and old awaits you. We are very pleased to introduce local Walthamstow DJ team Exstage, who will be providing musical cheer throughout the afternoon. We are also pleased that creative outfit Drawabout will be unleashing some storytelling art adventures amongst the crowds during the event.
Here’s how the rest of the running order is shaping up (please bear in mind that times are approximate, and may change):
St. Gabriel’s Church carol singers: Singing around the Plaza Christmas tree
Father Christmas and his elf open the event
Ukulele Players Band: Joyful Christmas songs and music
Punch N Judy Show: Geoff Felix Puppeteer
The Clean Peas: Celtic traditional folk music
Punch N Judy Show (repeat performance)
Wood Street Christ Chapel Choir: Christmas carols
Wood Street Christ Chapel Dancers: Dance display in front of the stage
Christ Chapel Choir & Dancers & St. Gabriel’s Carol Singers: Carol singing around the Christmas tree
4.00 pm Close
Also, some exciting news of a competition for those running table-top stalls: we are offering a luxurious Christmas hamper to the best festive looking stall at the Fayre. So dress your stall to impress, and you could win this.
If that has whetted your appetite, we can confirm that we have a few places left to fill. And you have a few days to fill them (until 30 Nov to be exact). So if you want your business or charity to be there on the day, see this post for all the details (including links to download the paperwork).
