Chawton House Christmas Fayre


Chawton House Christmas Fayre

Saturday 1st December, 11:00-16:30

Free Entry


Enjoy this unique chance to do a spot of Christmas shopping and soak up the festive atmosphere of Chawton House: browse the stalls selling handmade and local produce, enjoy a mince pie or three in the Old Kitchen Tearoom and meet Father Christmas in his grotto. Whilst browsing for stocking fillers and gifts, why not explore the rest of the house and grounds? See the table where Jane Austen enjoyed meals with her family and stroll through the Walled Garden mentioned in her letters. There will be plenty of Yuletide activities to keep the family entertained: decorate shortbread with your favourite festive scene; take part in traditional parlour games, and enjoy carol singing by the children from Anstey Junior School.
