Westonbirt Charities Fair, Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st October, 10.30-4.30
The Westonbirt Shopping Fair is a great annual event. There will be 125 stalls exhibiting gifts, clothing and homewares in the wonderful historic setting of the school and in a magnificent marquee, featuring a collection of stall holders that will sell a fabulous range of eclectic and classic products to tempt every taste - you'll be able to find something for everyone on your Christmas list. This year the Café and Restaurant are larger and will serve delicious snacks and hot meals throughout the day.
The Westonbirt Shopping Fair is one of the largest charity fairs in the West Country. It is a not-for-profit annual event organised by the Home-Start Stroud District charity supporting both Home-Start and other local charities. Last year's Fair raised £35,000 - all this money went to these charities.
During the Fair, why not make use of the school’s Holiday Club for children aged 4 - 14. Leave the kids to swim in the pool, have fun on the quad bikes, or immerse themselves in arts and crafts.
