In a city which has a different festival every few days, it’s difficult to choose which events should qualify as unmissable.
One event which deserves this description however is the annual LOCAL Food & Craft and Gift Fair, held over 2 days in the Black Box Theatre.
It’s now less than two weeks to go until the fair, and with over 60 producers and makers who will descend on the venue to showcase their products, it truly is unmissable.
The annual fair is now on its fifth year, and it will take place this year on Saturday and Sunday, 25 and 26 November.
Admission is free, and food lovers are welcome to browse through the stands sampling products and getting invaluable ideas for unique, locally-made gifts.
