So what happened last year?
FESTIVE GIFT FAYRE OPENED AT 11am
We had a FABULOUS Gift Fayre this year - with exhibitors coming from right across the counties! They brought an amazing array of products to choose from
- most of which were handmade by themselves - and very talented they were too!
The ladies from ZUMBA GOLD treated everyone to a display of dance under the big marquee that was situated outside Occasions Card Shop (thank you Occasions for allowing us the use of your forecourt!)
Soon after, SWING UNLIMITED COMMUNITY BIG BAND kicked off the live music and got everyone into the swing of
Our very own local female duo, the lovely SONGBIRDS brought us lots of seasonal classics as well as their fabulous contemporary repertoire - thank you so much girls for giving your time for free - everyone really enjoyed your set!
Last, but not least HIGHCLIFFE ST MARK'S PRIMARY SCHOOL put on a lovely performance of traditional Christmas songs and
was thoroughly enjoyed by all - a huge thank you to them (and their parents!) for braving the cold!
HIGHCLIFFE COMMUNITY CARS very kindly provided FREE transport from their outlet in Lymington Road (opposite the Gift Fayre) to the Children's Quarter - just to save those little legs!
First class PUNCH & JUDY SHOWS! were available throughout the afternoon - good family fun for all
The award-winning CREATION STATION provided some creative fun where children could "make & take" and have lots of fun
in the process!
DR BALLOONMAN provided some stunning balloon creations and hilarious comedy magic!
Fairground rides were also available for a period of time for children to enjoy.
If anyone took some photographs of the procession, we'd like to hear from you!
Please use the "Contact us" page to get in touch, so that we can arrange to get them uploaded onto the website for all to see!
