Shopping delights and festive fun at the South of England Showground’s Winter Fair this November

The South of England Agricultural Society is delighted to announce that its Winter Fair weekend will return to the South of England Showground in Ardingly, West Sussex, this November.
Running from 9am – 5pm on Saturday 23rd and 9am – 4pm on Sunday 24th November, the Winter Fair will be a shoppers’ paradise providing the perfect opportunity to get the Christmas preparations sorted whilst enjoying a festive family day out.
Visitors can shop till they drop with a plethora of artisan goodies all from local, independent traders across the south of England. For food and drink lovers there’s mouth-watering gin liqueurs, homemade chilli jams, gourmet pork pies, truckle cheeses, handcrafted macaroons and chocolate wine. For those looking for unique gifts and stocking fillers there’s everything from wooden toys, artwork, jewellery, lovingly produced leather and cashmere fashion, natural soap and grooming gift sets, stunning home accessories, Christmas decorations and more.
It’s not just about the shopping though. The Winter Fair provides the perfect day out to keep the whole family entertained. Featuring a variety of feel-good Christmassy entertainment and activities, families are sure to enjoy the giant snow globe that they can step inside to capture the perfect Christmas-card-worthy family picture. There are also the thrilling delights of the traditional carousel, meet and greets with the Ice Queen and her elf, and of course the opportunity to meet the big man himself inside Santa’s grotto.
If that weren’t enough, there’s even the chance for both adult and child visitors to take part in chocolate-making workshops so they can wow their friends and family over the festive period with their very own handmade truffles or chocolate decorations.
With the Winter Fair taking place inside and undercover or in heated marquees, there’s no need to be worried about the unpredictable British weather.
