The National Botanic Garden’s Christmas Craft Fair is going to be a real cracker. It takes place in the stunning surrounds of the Great Glasshouse next weekend (Dec 8-9) and is brimming with brilliant, locally-made craft. From Welsh wool knitwear and kiln-fired copper enamelling, to jewellery, lovespoons, teddy bears, pictures and prints; there’s something for everyone.
Perfect for that difficult-to-buy-for relative or friend, the Christmas Craft Fair is open from 10am-4.30pm on both days. Normal Garden admission applies.
Craft fair organiser Dawn Crisp said: ‘We have a marvellous mix of the traditional and the modern with lots of stalls offering plenty of choice for people of all ages. So, come along and get your gifts. Why not bring the children to see Santa – and make a real festive family fun day of it.’
Then on the following weekend (Dec 15-16) the Christmas Food Fair will be held. Oh the treats to be sampled, the delicious temptations from an array of local suppliers.
There’s whiskey, chocolate, hampers, cakes, delicious cheese, pastries, meat, fresh artisan bread, beer and lots more besides. It all happens amid the Mediterranean plantings of the Great Glasshouse – the largest single-span glasshouse on the planet. 10am-4.30pm both days.
Not only will you be spoilt for choice at these wonderful markets but you will also be supporting local businesses and buying unique, original produce from West Wales.
