The Christmas Cotswold Fair is back in support of WellChild

By Charlotte Edwards · September 13, 2021

The Christmas Cotswold Fair is back, spreading fun and festive cheer and raising much needed funds for WellChild, returning to Daylesford Organic Farm from November 8th to 11th.

Organiser Lucy Greaves and her committee are thrilled to welcome over 200 bespoke and exclusive brands to the 2021 Christmas Cotswold Fair; the true beginning of a Cotswold Christmas. The fair went online last year due to COVID but this year it is home again in three magnificent marquees – a splendid place to reunite with your friends, in a safe and considered environment, with delicious culinary treats from The Potted Goose at your fingertips.

In a special addition to the usual timetable, alongside the bonanza of independent brands, the 2021 Christmas Cotswold Fair will give guests the opportunity to meet some of the UK’s best-known wellness experts. In a series of talks and workshops over the three days, these experts will be sharing their knowledge, from food tips to decluttering your home and preparing for your best ever Christmas. Traditional wreath making and cookery demonstrations, led in the specially built Hunt Bespoke Kitchen, will also be taking place.

Monday 8th November will see the preview evening, complete with cocktail reception courtesy of Brilliant Gin, as well as an exclusive Cotswold Grey VIP area, fit to bursting with gorgeous soft furnishings and Christmas trinkets. Enjoy a canape or two from the delicious Potted Goose catering. It will be a perfect place to reunite and share stories from the past 12 months.

Lucy Greaves said: “As we look forward to the end of another challenging, yet rewarding year, there is only one exciting way to really herald the beginning of the festive season, bringing joy and cheer to our area of outstanding natural beauty. The Christmas Cotswold Fair at Daylesford Organic Farm Shop, in support of the national children’s charity WellChild, will once again bring yuletide pleasure to the region this November, full to bursting with exceptional brands and events, ready to make Christmas 2021 the best, and most memorable, yet.”

“It’s fantastic to welcome back the Christmas Cotswold Fair, it is such an important and well-loved part of the area’s Christmas time and it brings in much needed funds for WellChild’s work with seriously ill children and their families all across the UK. The Fair is a huge success, thanks to Lucy and her committee, but also all the stallholders and every one of the customers who turn up and make it such a brilliant event each year.”

The 2021 Fair will be specially organised, taking into account all government COVID guidance, with socially distanced stalls, wider access areas, sanitizer and wash basins available, as well as staff on hand for those with any concerns. Each stall will have a clearly marked zone for customers, making shopping a safe experience. Each customer will be greeted on arrival with a map of stalls, a list of Fair protocols and clear guide to social practices whilst on site, as well as the opportunity to use cleaning facilities prior to getting stuck into some serious Christmas shopping!

As always, The Christmas Cotswold Fair will be the home to unique gifts which will leave your friends and family in awe, with inspiring products, from luxury fashion brands to home accessories, children’s toys to delicious cuisine. Regional producers and artisan manufacturers will also be championed once again, bringing their Christmas selection to the fore.

Tickets are available now from £15, with a variety of packages on offer. For more information or to contact The Christmas Cotswold Fair regarding your individual needs, please visit the website www.cotswoldfair.com
