The return of our Christmas Gift and Food Fair at Chelmsford City Racecourse!

Pre-booking has now closed but you can still purchase your tickets on the day; £6 adults, £5 concessions 65+, under 16’s £1!

Shoppers are due to descend on Chelmsford City Racecourse for the return of Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Christmas Gift and Food Fair on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th November!

The Fair is one of the region’s biggest and best Christmas shopping events in Essex, showcasing over 100 small local businesses, with the majority from Essex and Suffolk. There will be an exciting variety of high-quality, unique gifts, decorations, crafts and festive foods to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Community Fundraiser Karen Mitchell said “We always ensure a wide variety of different stalls, from homemade crafts, food stalls, Christmas gifts, toys, unique gifts for men, women and children, personalised items from local designers, boutiques and bespoke craftsmen. We always limit the number of stalls selling items of similar genres to ensure happy shoppers and successful sellers.

Alongside the shopping stands, there will be a range of popular food and drink stalls, serving up alcoholic beverages including festive hot drinks and mulled wine. On the Sunday, children will get the chance to meet Santa in his grotto (independent stall, additional fees apply).

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity are also hosting their very first Christmas Market at Trinity Park, Ipswich on Saturday 4th December 2021 – click here for more information. 

Tickets for either event are priced at £6 adults, £5 concessions, under 16’s £1! Please be rest assured that should the event be unable to take place due to further Covid-19 restrictions all ticket costs will be refunded.

Keeping with the Christmas spirit, Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Christmas cards are on sale now! Available in their Charity Shops, Support Centres and over the phone. With lots of festive designs to choose from there is something to suit all tastes and at £3.95 for a pack of 10 they’re a bargain too!
