Our annual Woodcock Craft Fayre will be taking place in the church on 18th November, between 10am and 4pm. Join us in the beautiful surroundings of our ancient church where you can purchase an array of products directly from independent crafters.
Why not shop sustainably for your Christmas gifts? You’ll also have a chance to try your luck on the Bottle Tombola and the Raffle.
We will be serving tea and coffee with cake throughout the day or why not come at lunchtime and enjoy some delicious home-made soup.
This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we would love to see you there. We are always grateful for your support.
Why do we call it the Woodcock Craft Fayre?
During the Middle Ages, the Woodcock Fayre was a hiring fair held in November in Pembridge Market Hall and was an important place for agricultural labourers across the county to seek work from landowners. This practice carried on through the 19th and into the 20th century and only ceased after the First World War
Our modern day Woodcock Fayre was reintroduced in 2016 and has grown since then. It is an opportunity to showcase the amazing wealth of crafts and crafts people in our local area, together with the opportunity to trade – the foundation of our village of Pembridge
