All the fun of the winter fair at Lydford Gorge

The annual winter fair for 2018 will be held over two days, Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December, 11am to 3pm. It is a great chance to purchase some unique gifts and decorations ready for Christmas. There will be a campfire to warm your hands and ranger activities for the children.

There will be a range of local craft and food producers showing off their wares. With stalls to tempt you selling honey, textiles, woollens, glassware, jewellery and more.

Vintage Silver Workshop will be visiting the Lydford Gorge winter fair again this year, with unique jewellery from vintage silver - all pieces are made using a mix of antique and new silver, often incorporating old ‘things’ found in antiques fairs. Rarely do two pieces ever turn out exactly the same and the larger repurposed pieces are all sold with their ‘Repurposing Certificate’ from Goldsmiths in London, where Julie is registered as a Silversmith.
