What to expect at Cotswold Fair

November will creep up on us in no time and with it, the earliest highlight in the Christmas season – our Christmas Cotswold Fair at Daylesford.

But what can you expect in 2022? The pandemic is a distant (though vivid) memory, and this year is all about gatherings – gatherings of friends, of family members, of loved ones of all colours, creeds and canine persuasion. So with this in mind, we have highlighted the best elements of our 2022 Fair, fit to bursting with all your Christmas shopping needs.

First things first – our tents!

We may be bias, but they are just FAB! Following entrance through our greeting tent, you’ll find our stallholders spread across three tents, all laid out in an easy to follow format, with our cafe hosted by Potted Goose at the opposite end.

Want a VIP experience?

This year, Cotswold Grey will be once again kindly sponsoring our VIP area, the perfect place to sit with a drink and mull over your thrilling purchases. What’s more, for the full VIP experience, why not join us for our preview Monday evening, with each and every ticket holder offered a delicious cocktail courtesy of Gin in a Tin on arrival, plus a special gift from Woodchester Valley Vineyard for our VIP ticket holders, all accompanied by the luscious tones of Henry Crudge on the decks. VIP-tastic!

Looking for a new skill?

Why not join us for one of our exclusive tutorials with fabulous chefs, interior designers, design specialists and many more. All workshops are complimentary with your tickets. The Christmas Cotswold Fair isn’t just a place for shopping – learn a new skill or take home a new Christmas recipe.

Chien Lunatique – why shouldn’t we cherish and treat our pooch pals at Christmas?! Stop in for a bespoke range of luxury and discerning canine gifts with a twist

Killy & Co – home is where the heart is, and what is a home without the perfect mug. Cue Killy Williams’s vibrant animal-themed collection, with marvellous names like Ernie Dinky and Big Mike.

Plum & Ashby – and now for something completely luxurious. Scents, home and body collections honed from the British landscape, using the finest ingredients. Yes please!

Little shout out to our sponsors

It goes without saying that we couldn’t raise any money at all for the wonderful WellChild without our incredible sponsors – so make sure you pop in and say hello to each and every one of them as you make your way round the Fair!
