Inaugural Bressingham Christmas Craft Fair hailed as a success as it brings in the crowds
After decking the hall with stalls of goodies, an inaugural Christmas craft fair has been hailed a success, after droves of visitors perused more than 50 stalls on each of the two days.
The Bressingham Hall and High Barn event was focused on local crafters, with stalls for jewellery, candle making, soap making, cake, chutney, gin, textiles, stationery, art and more, in addition to seasonal offerings, such as mulled wine and mince pies.
Venue director Samantha Clifford, from Rushall, spoke of the positive feedback from stallholders and visitors – and plans to bring the event back next year.
“We tried to cram a real variety of local crafters and vendors in to support and celebrate the work they do,” she said.
“We are definitely looking to make it an annual event and, given its success, we hope to expand on that with various other events through the year, in addition to the weddings and functions we already hold regularly.
“The Bloom family who own the estate were there helping to make the event a success, and it was real team effort.”
