Craft Fair 2018

Red image with details of the Craft Fair, November 30, 4pm - 8.30pm at Waltham Forest Town Hall

Waltham Forest Town Hall will once again be throwing its doors open for a very special festive evening that all residents are invited to.

Back by popular demand following their roof-raising performance last year, East 17 will be coming home to perform their greatest hits and make sure the festive season starts with a bang (you do not need to book to see East 17, just turn up on the day!).

The event is free and includes family entertainment, a makers and creators indoor market, ideal for Christmas shopping with an array of beautifully made gifts from local people. There will also be craft activities and face painting for children, roaming Father Christmas ready for your ‘selfie with Santa’, food and beauty demonstrations from Waltham Forest College students, food and drink stalls, covered bar area, music and carol singers, guided tours of the beautiful Town Hall building and a Christmas light switch-on.

Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service students will have stalls in the Town Hall reception. Be inspired by local creativity with our free taster sessions, these will book out quickly so make sure you get in quick! Show someone how much you care for them with an exclusive handmade Christmas card and present for a truly original one-of-a-kind gift.
