The Walled Garden Nottingham Spring Fair

April 28th, 2014 § 0

What a gorgeous day! I absolutely loved running the Spring Fair at The Walled Garden in Beeston, Nottingham.  A hidden gem of a venue which seemed to be a very unexpected surprise to the visitors who joined us throughout the day.

The gardens were being enjoyed by families, friends enjoying a bite to eat with a glass of prosecco and we were event joined by two miniature ponies!  The exhibitors offered an array of gorgeous products and a delicious selection of food and drink.

A big thank you  to all the exhibitors who made the event look amazing.  If you visited the event I hope you had a fabulous time!

I am delighted to be working with The Walled Garden in Beeston again.  A stunning venue located in Nottinghamshire just down the A52 from Derby.  Following a successful Winter Fair, the venue would like to open their doors again for a Spring themed event with lots of exhibitors selling gorgeous products.  Here’s a teaser of what you’ll find at the Spring Fair… each exhibitor has been carefully selected ensuring you’ll be spoilt for choice:

Gift exhibitors including home accessories, plants, flowers, jewellery, gardenware, interiors and much more.  Food exhibitors offering cheeses, cakes, chocolates, artisan bread, chutneys, jams, patisserie products, hot meat rolls, home made lemonade, ice cream, wood fired pizzas, fresh coffee & tea.

There will also be a Prosecco Bar run by the fabulous Falcon Food & Spirits offering you the opportunity to enjoy a glass of Prosecco or Champagne during your visit.

The event is free to visit and there’s plenty of free parking too!  I hope to see you there on the 27th April, doors open at 10am.  Here is a link over to the Walled Garden’s website giving full directions to help you find it with ease.

Summer Market

April 12th, 2014 § 0

The Summer Market will be back for a 4th year at The Roundhouse, where has the time gone?!

I’ve been looking back through photos from past events and stumbled across some from 2009 when I held my first summer event, a Summer Fete at Blackbrook House.  It’s great to see the journey the events have taken and I can honestly say it’s been a fun packed, totally enjoyable experience for me.  Now it’s time to look forward to the 5th and 6th July when I’ll be opening the doors to The Roundhouse for another fabulous Summer Market.  Plans are well underway and I am already excited for the event!  The event will be run over two days this year, providing you with the choice of which day you would like to visit.

Here are a reminder of this year’s events presented by Fabulous Places.
