Christmas Fair 2018 Cancelled

As many of you know, last winter’s unexpected cancellation of the Christmas Fair dealt the festival a heavy blow. At one point we thought the blow might be fatal to our small organisation. However, months of dedication and hard work from our team – plus great support from Monmouthshire council and many of our festival friends – meant that we were able to keep September’s show on the road. Sadly we have taken the decision not to run the annual Christmas Fair this year, to allow the team some time to secure exciting future plans. 

we’re delighted that Monmouthshire County Council has stepped in to run a Christmas Artisan Market on Sunday 9th December in Abergavenny. Applications can be downloaded here and will need to be returned to Sharon Hutchinson ( When making their selection, priority will be given to local producers.

The festival office will be winding down in the lead up to Christmas, so please don’t send any applications directly to us.

If you have any queries, please contact or call 01873 735811.
