Winter Fair success at Ardingly

161203 SNAP Winter Fair 06

A record-breaking 11,500 people visited the South of England Event Centre’s Winter Fair at Ardingly to enjoy the festive fun and shopping this weekend on 3 and 4 December 2016.

Visitors were welcomed by Christmas choirs and a magical Snow Queen on stilts accompanied by her Elf helper, before entering two large shopping courts where over 120 stall holders offered inspirational and original Christmas gifts.

The Winter Fair offered something for all the family to enjoy with some great local produce, live music, real reindeer, a fabulous Santa’s Grotto, fantastic street entertainment, dodgem cars and a sumptuous food court.

Live bands played throughout both days from the fantastic Harry’s Tricks with their blend of 20’, 30’s and 40’s music and exciting acoustic singer/songwriter Fred Clark, who performed some great Christmas classics alongside his own compositions.
