Christmas is coming to Lavenham when a popular annual three-day festive fair returns today. A wide range of craft, food and seasonal stalls will be running throughout the village, alongside a host of attractions for all the family. The fair begins this evening, from 5.30pm to 8.30pm, with stalls in and around the Market Place, as well as late-night shopping. The fair continues on Saturday, between 11am and 5pm, and on Sunday, between 11am and 4pm. Both days will feature a wide range of stalls, food and drink, live music, traditional fairground rides and, of course, an appearance by Father Christmas himself. A spokesman for the fair organisers said: “Lavenham Christmas Fair is the perfect place to celebrate the festivities while showcasing all that our beautiful village has to offer. “You can shop for some unique gifts, both among our stalls and shops, and enjoy our famous restaurants, cafés, pubs, galleries and museums.” To find out more about this year’s Christmas fair, go online to www.facebook.com/lavenhamchristmasfair.
