Festive fun will be on offer when St Giles Hospice hosts its annual Christmas Fair.

Taking place on 16th November at the charity’s Whittington HQ, the event will give visitors a chance to browse stalls, enjoy Christmas carols and meet Santa in his grotto.

There will also be vintage cars and a fire engine on display.Santa is coming and families can enjoy a day of festive fun on Saturday 16th November when St Giles Hospice holds its annual Christmas Fair.

The event runs from 12pm to 4pm, and Sally Insley, community and corporate fundraising manager at St Giles Hospice, said she hoped it would be the perfect way to kickstart the festive period.

“It’s a wonderful chance to stock up on your Christmas gifts, cards and decorations in good time and really start to get into the Christmas spirit,” she said.

“There will be face painting and glitter tattoos for everyone who wants to add a bit of sparkle to their festive preparations.

“We’ll have games and tombolas, festive food and drink and Star Wars stormtroopers from the UK garrison will be on patrol.

“Our day hospice patients have been busy creating keepsakes and gifts for sale on the day and we will also be welcoming the Tuneless Choir, from Sutton Coldfield, who will be singing traditional carols.

“It truly does take a community to make a hospice, and with your support we can raise much-needed funds enabling us to continue to care for local people living with a potentially-incurable illness and their families.”

Entry to the fair costs £2 for adults and £1 for children. Under-fives go free.
