Fayre Details

The Christmas Shopping Fayre is one of the UK’s biggest festive shopping shows and attracts a constant flow of shoppers with money in their pockets each year.

Little wonder too, with the show featuring over 250 very diverse stallholders offering their Christmas lines each year, low admission prices, a free Santa’s Grotto and plenty of free parking. Exhibitors are a tough bunch to please, but the show has earned the support of many of the country’s top traders who all rate the Shopping Fayre as one of the very best organised events they attend.

Exhibitors flock from all parts of the UK to be part of it, and such is the appeal of the Fayre that most of the traders automatically re-book their stalls a whole year in advance. A good number of them have attended for 20+ years!

Everybody looks forward to it… visitors, traders and so too the skilled teams of stand-builders, electricians and stewards who all enjoy their annual stint at the Shopping Fayre – long may it continue!!

Opening Times:

Friday 25th November & Saturday November 26th 9am - 5pm

Sunday 27th November 9am - 4pm

Hale Events has recently completed on the transfer of Christmas Shopping Fayre to leading Southwest events company Appletree Exhibitions  who are adding this incredibly popular event to its busy show calendar.

Southwest based Hale Event’s Managing Director, Mike Anderson commented. “We’re happy to pass the stewardship of this important event to Paul & Sara Atkins, and their team at Appletree Exhibitions. We will be focussing on delivering our trade shows, and Appletree already run many successful public events across the country, so we know that this event is in safe hands for the future.”

The next Christmas Shopping Fayre takes place from 25th – 27th November 2022,

Appletree Exhibitions has been organising shows in the Southwest for over 20 years and Managing Director, Paul Atkins commented: “We are delighted to add this popular and very successful Fayre to our SW show portfolio. This show compliments the range of consumer shows that Appletree currently organise across the UK and we are very much looking forward to this new and exciting opportunity.”

Most importantly for exhibitors and shoppers alike is that there will be no noticeable changes to the way the event has been run for so many years. The 2022 Christmas Shopping Fayre is already filling with a mix of new traders with completely different lines joining the many popular regular stallholders.
