Not enough Christmas spirit at market

Share this article

We decided to do some quality Christmas shopping at the Newstead Abbey Christmas Fayre.

There were at most 50 stalls, most of them selling sweets, designer drinks or jewellery. Very few with crafted products or Christmas specialities. In 15 minutes we has seen all there was to see, were totally unimpressed, hadn’t spent a penny and decided to leave. Thank goodness Chad had printed a voucher for half price entry so we only felt we had been ripped off once. Several other people say that they feel the same way. Will we be at Newstead Abbey next Christmas Fayre? Not on your nelly!
