Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic last year’s Christmas Fayre was cancelled. It is hoped the 2021 Christmas Fayre will be able to go ahead, once arrangements have been made this page will be updated and the event will be advertised on the Ferryhill Town Council’s Facebook Page.
The Christmas Fayre is held annually on the last Friday in November. In the past the event has included a procession, involving children from local primary schools, the procession is led by festive donkeys from St Lukes Church at 4pm to the Town Hall gardens for carol singing at 4.15pm. All adults and children wishing to take part in the procession and carol singing are asked to meet at St. Luke’s Church at 3.45pm.
The official switch on of the Town’s Christmas lights follows at 4.30pm. The honour of switching on the Town’s lights falls to a pupil from a local Primary School accompanied by the Mayor of Ferryhill. .
The event also includes a Craft Fayre in St Luke’s Church, show rides and stalls in the Market Place Car Park, festive donkey rides in Chapel Terrace, Santa’s Grotto in the outbuilding at the side of the Town Hall, and a children’s craft competition, face painting and refreshments upstairs in the Town Hall. The Methodist Church is usually open too so that residents can pop along and view the Festival of Trees, organised by ApproachToo.
