Summer is definitely in the air, and Christmas markets are coming out of the woodworks at great speed. I’ll be putting together a list of festive-focused markets as quickly as I can, but for now, here’s news of one coming up this weekend in Somerset West:
The Festive Fair at Hathersage is a 3-day exhibition of specialised gifts, décor items, clothing and accessories, jewellery and all things gorgeous! Around 80 exhibitors will showcase their wares to the local and surrounding communities on the stunning Hathersage Farm in Somerset West. Some of the goods on offer include edible treats, art, stationery, linens, décor items, ceramics, furniture, toys, plants & flowers and more!
Hathersage House – exclusive wedding and function venue and home to Hathersage wines – will be hosting an exhibition including one select company in each field related to the hospitality industry. A jeweller, events coordinator, florist, make-up artist, dress-maker, photographer and stationer will showcase their services and offer direct advice for anyone planning an important event.
Attractions at this year’s event include Nia and interactive demonstrations, a small vintage car display, live late-afternoon music, wine tastings, crafts and pony rides for the kiddies.
Entry is FREE!
