Christmas Crafts at Thainstone

Inverurie’s Thainstone Centre is once again playing host to the ever-popular annual Christmas craft fair next Friday (November 4) between 3pm and 9pm and Saturday (November 5) between 10am and 5pm.

The Christmas Craft Fair is thought of as the most accessible craft fair in the North-east with provision of free parking for more than 1000 cars and only a 15-minute drive from Aberdeen.

Laura Poppe, events manager at Thainstone, commented: “Our Christmas fair has always been very popular with shoppers due to the ease of parking here and its being so close to Aberdeen.

“We will have more than 50 stalls from all over the country offering a huge range of gifts and all under one roof.”

Admission to the fair is £2 and the stalls include Christmas cards, jewellery, ceramics, photography, decorations and crafts.

A bonfire and fireworks Display will follow on Saturday. Gates open at 5.30pm, Bonfire lit at 6.30pm and Fireworks at 7pm. The cost is £5 per car or £1 per pedestrian.
