It’s back - and it promises to be bigger and better than before.
The Winter Fair at Aberglasney House and Gardens is billed as ‘the best traditional winter fair in South West Wales’, offering something for everyone in the run-up to Christmas.
Last year’s fair fell victim to the heavy snow, but the promise is that the event will be back, bigger and better than before.
Fair organiser and Aberglasney administrative manager Patricia Turner said: “There’s a huge buzz about the fair this year, especially after the snow and ice put paid to all the hard work last December.
“The idyllic setting of Aberglasney House and Gardens in the Tywi Valley is ideal for a winter fair and we’ll have plenty on offer this year, from Christmas gifts, crafts, decorations, Welsh food and drink.
“There will be entertainment from Welsh and choirs, bell-ringers and bands – and there’s a free mince pie and a glass of mulled wine for all visitors.
“As a finishing touch to really put you in the Christmas spirit, all the staff will be dressed in period costume to give you that extra-special sense of a winter fair.
“It really is the season to be jolly at Aberglasney and we are looking forward to welcoming visitors old and new.
“For our regular visitors, it is a great social event and a chance to catch up with old friends in the run-up to Christmas. For new visitors, it gives a great opportunity to sample one of the great heritage gardens of Wales - a garden once ‘lost in time’ but now open for everyone to enjoy.”
The fair will be held on Saturday, December 3rd, and Sunday, December 4th, with the gates open between 10.30am and 4pm. Normal garden admission prices apply.
