Brighton’s Fairy Tale Fair to Move Online

On Sunday 7 June, from 11 am to 2 pm, the award-winning craft and design fair is to be held.

But, owing to the coronavirus pandemic, the Brighton-based fair has been forced to move online.

The virtual fair will occur on their Facebook event page as well as on their Instagram page with a wide variety of items from their regular designers and craft creators.

Unique deals will be made available on the day of the show, new product releases, and special editions.

The product lines will have a summer theme, there are gifts for Father’s Day, along with motivational and self-care products and rainbow-themed items!

Then if you’d like a gift for your father, beloved ones, birthday mates, or even something to motivate you along, don’t skip this online fair.

In addition to this online event, performances and a summer compilation to dance from home, the fair will also present some special guests to entertain everyone.

Launched in 2012 in a modest local village hall, the fair has already grown across several festivals across Sussex and went on to win the UK’s best market and community event two times.

Claire Montgomery, the founding member of the fair, said, “The fair that had been postponed was Worthing based, but we have people from all across Sussex.

“This year’s event will feature over 20 of our skilled independent designers with innovative products plus special offers. We also have guest artists and musical acts and even some giveaways. The concepts will include Dad’s Day Gifts, Summer Love, Self-Care, Motivation, and Rainbows.”

She added, “We were somewhat sad at the beginning of the year in canceling our Easter Fair, which would have helped the St. Barnabas House Cancer Hospice.

“Since 2015, we’ve raised more than £ 20,000 for the charity, and hope to be back at Christmas in continuing our fundraising campaign. We’ve been very grateful to have recently received support from The Arts Council England to allow us to keep operating throughout these difficult periods and bring back our family craft fairs whenever it’s safe to do so.”

The craft designers and makers all run small businesses, and perhaps now, more than ever, they would appreciate the support of the community.
