A POPULAR festive fair is returning to Tenbury as the countdown to Christmas continues.

Following the success of last year, the Christmas fair will be held at the Frank P Matthews tree shop on Saturday, December 9.

The event will be free to enter and there will be free mulled wine and cider provided.

Over 25 local stallholders will be there selling locally-made produce, handicrafts, and gifts. All trees in the tree shop will be discounted by 10 per cent on the day, and children will have the opportunity to take photos with and receive gifts from Father Christmas.

The Beefy Boys will be serving their award-winning burgers, and the bar and kitchen will be serving refreshments throughout the day.

Each stallholder will donate an item as part of a Christmas hamper, which will be distributed via a free raffle to one attendee.

A spokesperson said: “With the cost of living still a concern for many people, this hamper will help provide the lucky winner with a fabulous treat for Christmas Day.”
