Details

Aberglasney’s Winter Fair ~ one of Wales’ biggest festive events. A must-do of the Christmas season!

Get into the festive spirit with a warm mulled wine or spiced apple juice and a mince pie for each visitor, served by our dedicated volunteers.

In the Mansion and Craft Marquee - over sixty stalls offering a wide range of Christmas gifts and lovely things including decorations, ceramics, glass art, fine art, photography, floristry, jewellery, leather goods, knitwear, woodcraft, birdboxes, homeware and toiletries. You’ll be sure to find something for you and yours!

In the Food Marquee - thirty stalls of delicious artisan food and drink, and sweet treats from fudge to Christmas essentials like smoked salmon gin and coffee.

Outdoors - warm up with a hog roast or beef burger. Enjoy these under the cloisters, where there’ll be tables and benches, and a wood fire to evoke a little medieval ambiance. Also look out for seasonal plants and wreaths.

Tea Rooms in the Pool Garden - sit down and relax in the Tearooms, where there’ll be plenty of seasonal home-made savoury options. Emma’s sweet offerings will include mince pies with cream, shortbread and spiced apple Bakewell.

Music and dance performances - feel festive with music and dance performances across the three days.
