Are you getting excited for the return of the St Bons Christmas Fair?? Well we wanted to share with you a snippet of what to expect! Come along and kick off the Christmas season in style, can't wait to see you there! P.S. Volunteer to man a stall if you haven't already, its great fun and will help us run this fair!
P.P.S Don't forget your masks! P.P.P.S. We are operating a cashless fair, so please bring card for contactless payments and purchase as many tokens as you can in advance!
Start your visit with a warming drink at the pop up outdoor bar 'The Spirit of St Bons' (I will keep referring to it as this until it catches on...) We have a large variety of soft drinks, beer, tea, coffee, mulled wine (of course!) and hot chocolate - feeling indulgent? Of course you are! Add cream and marshmallows, who's counting calories at this time of year?? And why not spoil yourself by opting for a splash of baileys...ohhhh lovely!
If that wasn't enough there will be another bar indoors - we have you covered!
Once you have completed your time at the fair indoors via the one way system, feel free to re-vist our outdoor bar for a social one before heading home!
It would hardly be Christmas without a visit to the main man himself! Santa will be ready and waiting with his helper Elves to greet boys and girls (all of whom will be on the Nice list, right?!)
