The Christmas Gift and Food Fair at Ripon Cathedral will return this month.

The popular event is usually staged annually but could covid restrictions meant it did not happen in 2020.

This year it will take place for the first time over two days, on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 November from 9.30am to 4.30pm on both days.

There will be 95 stalls offering a wide selection of unusual gifts, crafts and local food.

A pop-up café will serve hot turkey sandwiches, mulled wine, hot drinks and homemade cakes.

Live Christmas music will be provided by local choirs over lunchtime on both days in the ornate setting of the cathedral’s quire.

The fair is popular with families and although Santa will not be attending this year, there will be craft activities for children, who will be able to decorate a Christmas bauble to take home and hang on their tree.

Harrogate solicitors Raworths and Leeds wealth management firm Brewin Dolphin are supporting the event as part of their business partnership with the cathedral.

Zoe Robinson, managing partner at Raworths said:

As a business partner, Raworths is delighted to play a part in the preservation and development of the Cathedral and to support local community-based events organised by Ripon Cathedral’s team, such as the wonderful annual Christmas Fair.”

Entry is £5 payable on the door by card or cash or online. Entry for accompanied children is free.
