The popular Christmas event in Bude has expanded over the past nine years and is staged in the Parkhouse Centre and The Castle. The focus this year is on children and families with Santa putting in an appearance in his Grotto in the Castle. He will be giving out wooden Christmas decorations for children to decorate in the Christmas arts and crafts room to take away. Alongside the stalls there will be live music with Christmas songs and carols, and refreshments in the form of mulled wine, mince pies, roasted horse chestnuts, and even stone baked pizzas. The fair is open 11am–4pm.
