Aardvark Christmas Fair

Come and round off your Christmas shopping with unusual and original gifts from the Aardvark Christmas Fair! Lots of local stalls of vintage, crafts and more, with live music, delicious mince pies and mulled wine, and festive treats in the café. Plus an opportunity to support local charitable cause #BeMoreFrank !

Back by popular demand, the Aardvark Christmas Fair returns again on Sunday 3rd December, 10am-3pm with a special selection of stalls of Christmas gifts and original crafts, and ideas for that hard-to-find Christmas present. 

There will be live music by The Dutch Lewis Trio, playing from his Christmas Songbook. Wrap up warm and come shopping at Aardvark for a unique festive experience!



This year we are delighted to team up with local charity Be More Frank, which is a special named fund of the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust, (charity number 1167783) and was set up in honour of Frank Cleal who died from a rare bone cancer in 2021, aged 13. The fund has raised £140k so far, solely from community support and provides non-means-tested grants to the families of every child with cancer in Herefordshire and the surrounding counties, and recently began providing funding for a Herefordshire childhood cancer Family Support Worker for three months.  At the Aardvark Christmas Fair you will be able to talk to a representative of this excellent cause, donate and find out more about their work.

Café refreshments will include hot food and Christmas mince pies and we also offer a complimentary glass of warming mulled wine. Also on order are jollity, and a definitely festive atmosphere.

Look out, too for the wonderful Open Studios event Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd December in Brampton Bryan, when you can visit  and buy a wide range of wonderful gifts direct from the artists and craftspeople working in in the village.

Bookshop and Cafe will be open 10am-4pm both days. Park at Aardvark and take a look round the village!
