Victorian Christmas Fair
Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 November 2017
Come along and soak up the wonderful Christmas atmosphere at our Victorian Christmas Fair
As the days grow shorter and scarves grow longer, Christmas shoppers begin to count the hours until the big day, ticking off and adding to their lists alternately and wondering where best to go to make some headway. It isn’t necessary to travel to Prague or Munich to find a great Christmas market, and high street hassles can be totally avoided by checking out one of Pembrokeshire’s best and most extensive Christmas markets offering a truly fantastic festive shopping experience.
Each year Picton Castle is transformed into a magical Christmas shopper’s paradise, as over 60 stalls packed full of gorgeous gifts line the corridors and staterooms of its 13th Century Castle and surrounding buildings within its Courtyard, not to mention the Food Hall and Maria’s Cooking Demonstrations in the Courtyard where this year she will be demonstrating how to cook Paella.
With its wealth of history, Picton Castle provides the perfect setting for the traditional Victorian Christmas decorations adorning its wonderful staterooms, providing a warm atmosphere and the perfect backdrop for the visitor to soak up the sights and sounds as they wander around the market. With the aroma of warming spices and freshly baked mince pies infusing the air, enjoyed with a generous sprinkling of festive music, this event gets even the biggest of humbugs into the Christmas spirit.
Picton is proud not just to be a distinctively British Christmas market, but a very local one, as most of its stallholders are businesses, food producers and craft makers from Pembrokeshire with each one carefully selected to give the best shopping choices possible. From beautifully handmade wooden toys and crafted candles, to tasty cheeses, funky jewellery and ceramics you’ll be able to find something for everyone on your Christmas gift list. They are very much a part of what makes the Picton Christmas Fair so special.
Stalls will be both inside the Castle, so you can enjoy the magnificent staterooms. There will be more outside in the Courtyard and Gallery areas – so whatever the weather, you can browse at your leisure!
