A Conwy Victorian coastal resort will be welcoming locals and guests from the Cae Mor Hotel llandudno in preparation for its annual Christmas Fayre from Thursday 15th November to Sunday 18th November. The Christmas Fayre, formerly known as the Celtic Winter Fayre, has been a key event on the North Wales Christmas calendar for years and attracts visitors from all over the United Kingdom and beyond. The seaside resort is located a few miles short drive along the A55 which gives you another reason to get into the festive spirit and start those Christmas celebrations early.
A Christmas Experience to Suit All Tastes
This year the number of stalls will be increasing to cope with the demand and popularity of the Christmas Fayre. Last year’s event was so popular that 20,000 visitors flocked from all over North Wales to the scenic seaside town, to sample quality local food guaranteed to tickle your taste-buds and give you inspiration for festive dishes and indulgences over the Christmas period. North Wales produces a huge range of quality home grown produce, from Celtic Country Wines, cheese, jams, chutneys and crackers and there will be an outside hog roast to warm you up from the winter weather.
Craft enthusiasts will be able to purchase original handmade and unusual gifts that will serve as memorable stocking fillers for friends and family. To name but a few, craft stall holders include Jasper Sparkle, a jewellery designer who recently exhibited at the Anglesey Show, an artist Charles Bell who produces beautiful marine and landscape watercolour pictures and if you want to give bird watching a go in the new year the well known RSPB Cymru will be looking for new members.
Go Down the Rabbit Hole this Christmas
The Christmas Fayre will take up the whole of Madoc Street and the festive atmosphere will spill into the rest of Llandudno with seasonal cheer. An Alice in Wonderland themed Christmas Grotto will be installed in an empty shop unit in the Victorian Shopping Centre to give festive revellers an unforgettable opportunity to see various scenes from Alice in Wonderland re-enacted by original props from the old Rabbit Hole museum before meeting Father Christmas at the end.
Sample the Dickensian Christmas Atmosphere
All of the shops in the Victorian Centre will also be making an effort to re-create an authentic Dickensian Christmas atmosphere by having members of staff dress up in festive costume and hosting a best dressed window competition. The Mayor of Llandudno will be opening the Christmas Fayre immediately after switching on the Christmas lights on the evening of the 15th in the Victoria Shopping Centre at 4:45pm.
