Christmas Craft Fayre at Peterborough Museum

About

Families can get into the festive spirit with a free craft fayre at Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery in November.

The event on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November will feature a wide variety of gifts from local producers, artists and craft makers, with stalls spread throughout the museum’s historic Georgian building. It’s the first time Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery has hosted a Christmas Craft Fayre of this kind, which will support local businesses in the run up to Christmas.

Visitors can shop for stocking fillers and unique presents for loved ones, such as handmade jewellery. Festive treats on offer will include a vegan bakery, a free mince pie when you buy a hot drink at The Georgian Kitchen, and reindeer food for children to leave out on Christmas Eve.

Over the weekend youngsters can also make their own tree decorations in the children’s craft area.

People who don’t enjoy wrapping presents can take advantage of the gift-wrapping service at the event.

Once families have stocked up on festive gifts and food, they can enjoy the museum’s historical highlights across its eight permanent galleries, such as the Victorian operating theatre and Jurassic collection, which will be open to explore during the fayre.

 Councillor Steve Allen, cabinet member for culture and recreation at Peterborough City Council, said: “Festive season at the museum is always full of cheer and I encourage everyone to visit this year’s Christmas Fayre, where there’ll be something for all the family.

“The majority of stalls are locally owned and supporting our doorstep businesses at this time of year provides them with a welcome boost. There’s lots of exciting things happening at the museum - especially with the forthcoming street arts Urban exhibition - and both these events will no doubt reintroduce the museum to lots of people who haven’t visited for a while.”

Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery’s Christmas Craft Fayre will be open from 10am to 4pm on both days. Entry is free.
