Christmas Gift Fair at Chelmsford City Racecourse organised by Helen Rollason Cancer Charity

On Sunday 26th November, Helen Rollason Cancer Charity will again be hosting the Christmas Gift Fair at Chelmsford City Racecourse. One of the best in the area. 

Visitors can get into the Christmas spirit, start shopping early and enjoy a wonderful day out with family or friends.  There will be over 100 stalls selling a wide range of unique gifts, jewellery, homeware, toys and cards, as well as food and drink to impress guests over the festive season or to give away as gifts.  Most of the stallholders are local artisans from Essex and Suffolk.  There will be live music and family entertainment and, when visitors want a break, they can choose from a selection of food and drink vendors.   

As well as enjoying a great day soaking up the festive atmosphere, visitors will be helping to raise funds to support local people living with cancer. 

The Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Head of Fundraising and Marketing Zoe Jay 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. 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”. 

The fair will be open from 10am until 4pm.  There will be plenty of free parking at the main entrance, which is located off the A131 at Great Leighs.  Entrance fees are £6 for adults, £5 for concessions, £1 for children.  But visitors can save £2 per adult ticket and children are free for online bookings made before October 31st at Christmas Gift Fair Tickets
