A Christmas Craft Fair is taking place at The Beachy Head Story this weekend for people to pick up festive crafts, perfect presents and enjoy live music and carol singing.

The fair is on Saturday and Sunday 10 – 11 December, from 10am to 4pm on both days.

Each day will have a different selection of sellers. On Saturday stall holders will be selling woodcrafts, dog accessories, Christmas wreaths and shadowboxes, handmade fibre art pieces, pebble art, decorations and baubles, and artwork and crafts.

At 1pm on Saturday, Eastbourne Community Choir will sing Christmas carols.

On Sunday there will be stalls offering stained glass pieces, wool accessories and gifts, artwork and cards, handmade gifts, embroidered gifts, and handmade resin gifts.

Festive folk music will be performed throughout the day by Liz Pearson.

The Beachy Head Story gift shop will also be open with its wide range of local gifts including jams and chutneys from Eastbourne’s Wild Preserves, award-winning, eco-friendly playsets from Sussex based PlayPress Toys and cards and prints by Seaford based designer and illustrator Onneke.

The shop also stocks a range of gifts inspired by the exhibition and Beachy Head. There is an exclusive exhibition selection of gemstones and fossils and all gifts are ethically and environmentally sourced.

Councillor Margaret Bannister, Eastbourne Borough Council’s Lead Member for Tourism & Culture said, “With Christmas only weeks away, the Christmas Craft Fair will give people the perfect opportunity to stock up on gifts and especially more unusual items handmade by local creatives.”

The Beachy Head Story – an exhibition that allows visitors to discover the beautiful landscape of Beachy Head and the South Downs – will be open and there will be a Festive Trail for children to search for festive folklore around the exhibition. Completed trails will be entered into a prize draw.
