Friday 1st December 6.00pm to 9.00pm, Saturday & Sunday 2nd & 3rd 10.00am to 4.00pm
The delightful Larmer Tree Christmas Fair will take place during the first weekend of December. Larmer Tree offers an opportunity for a selection of talented local companies to highlight their products in the most unique location.
The Christmas Fair takes place within the Victorian Jubilee Hall and Pavilion but visitors also have the chance to walk through the beautiful gardens that were laid out by General Augustus Pitt Rivers back in 1880.
Entry charges are Adults £4.00, Seniors £3.00, and Children under 16 free of charge. The fee includes a warming welcome drink of mulled wine, mulled cider, or spiced apple juice.
Larmer Tree’s fabulous in-house caterers will be providing delicious festive fayre throughout the event. Grab a mince pie, a slice of stollen or delicious sausage roll to eat on the move or sit down for a mouth-watering snack or lunch.
On Friday evening the adorable Abbey Primary School Choir opens the fair, entertaining visitors with charming renditions of modern and classic festive songs and carols. Over the course of the weekend, musicians, choirs, and entertainers drop in to spread festive cheer.
To keep the children entertained, Mr Merlin and Okey Dokey the Dragon will be performing magical shows on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets for these performances need to be booked in advance and can be purchased at a cost of £3 per child. Book tickets for Saturday here and Sunday here.
We’ll also be joined by Alpaca Adventures and you can meet the birds of prey from Hawks in the Forest – vouchers for these exciting experiences make a brilliant Christmas gift.
As a tradition, we always like to support a charity at Christmas and this year it is the turn of SERVE Wessex, the volunteer blood bikers for Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire. They provide an amazing service delivering urgently needed blood and medical essentials to hospitals. Any help you can give at Christmas or throughout the year, would be most appreciated.
This is an exceptionally festive and jolly event that gains in popularity each year and we would love to welcome you to Larmer Tree this Christmas.
