Shoppers can get into the festive spirit at the Mayor of Bolton’s Charity Christmas Fair on Saturday, November 24.
A large selection of stall holders will have Christmas gifts on offer, including hand-knitted toys, games, hand-crafted cards, decorations, calendars, stationery and cakes.
Children will be able to post a letter to Santa in a special red post box and will then be able to visit Santa in his Winter Wonderland, getting a gift and sticker.
This year will also see a free prize draw for everyone who attends the fair to win a family ticket to this year’s pantomime at the Bolton Albert Halls, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
The fair will be held in Festival Hall and Lancaster Suite, in the Town Hall, from 10am until 12pm and refreshments will be on sale in the Loyals Lounge. Visitors should enter through the Albert Halls entrance.
There will be an entrance fee of 50p for adults and 10p for children and all proceeds from sales will go to a wide range of local and national charities chosen by the stall holders.
Funds from a giant raffle, and a tombola run by former Bolton mayoresses and female councillors will also contribute to the Mayor’s Charity Appeal.
The Mayor of Bolton, Councillor Guy Harkin said: “The fair will be a great occasion to pick up some bargains and contribute to some really worthwhile causes at the same time. It should be an opportunity for all visitors to get into the festive spirit and see what Bolton has to offer, and I hope that everyone who can make it comes along to the town hall to see what is happening.”
