Halloween has been and gone, mischievous elves are appearing on shelves in shops everywhere and Mariah Carey has announced ‘It’s Time’ in emphatic fashion.

Ok, we guess the run up to Christmas has started.

And to celebrate, Victoria Baths will host a Festive Winter Fair, featuring seasonal tradition with 50 shopping stalls, mulled wine, mince pies and Christmas carols.

Indie makers, crafters and local businesses will be filling their stalls with gorgeous products and original ideas that will give your Christmas gift buying an injection of the wow factor. The Tea Room will be open serving sweet and savoury snacks, local choirs will be getting you in the festive mood with renditions of your favourite carols and there will be a Kids Festive Trail for some Family Friendly fun. The three pool halls mean there is plenty of space and no need to the battle the elements, with the vaulted glass roofs keeping everyone nice and dry (though do wrap up warm!)

Stalls at Victoria Baths Festive Winter Fair include home and jewellery products crafted in macrame and crochet from Knots and Kissesxxx; textiles from Gingham Flamingo, artists Tiger Design, Mooky Doodle and Mint To Be as well as Debbie Hill and Laura Kate Draws; and more jewellery from The Magpie’s Daughter, Joolzery, Odile and the Bijou Box, Susan Smit Venning, Sulie Bear Silver, The Mountain and Me and Aisling Chou Studio.
