The Canterbury Tales is seeking stall-holders for a special festive market with a medieval twist, as the attraction's popular Christmas Artisan Gift Fair returns for a second year.
On Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 November, the award-winning attraction will throw open its doors to festive shoppers from across the UK, and organisers are keen to hear from local designers and artisans interested in selling quality craft and gifts.
Visitors will be able to enter the attraction free of charge and try some traditional mead and a mince pie at the famous Tabard Inn. They can then step back in time to the streets of 14th century England and purchase gifts from a host of stalls set among the attraction's vibrant tableaux, which depict five of Chaucer's best-loved stories.
Entrance to the fair will be free and visitors will be given discount vouchers for a future visit to the attraction, so they can return with family and friends and experience The Canterbury Tales over Christmas and the New Year.
The attraction's general manager, Lyndsay Ridley, says: "We want to build on the success of last year's event to make this year's Christmas Artisan Gift Fair even bigger and better. The aim is to showcase the best of local craft and design, so we are looking for local artisans who have something special to offer our guests – whether its pottery, calligraphy or other specialised artisan crafts."
Traders interested in attending the fair should contact the attraction on 01227 784600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 9th October for more information and to request an application form.
The Canterbury Tales' Christmas Artisan Gift Fair is taking place between 10am and 4.30pm on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 November 2015. There is no charge for pitches but a 20% commission will be charged on takings over the two days.
The Canterbury Tales provides a great introduction to the cathedral city and its famous literary connection as well as being a hugely entertaining day out for the whole family. The Canterbury Tales remains one of Kent's 'must see' attractions.
The Canterbury Tales is a Continuum Heritage Attraction. Discover the hidden stories within famous historic cities at Continuum Heritage Attractions.
