Hand-crafted gifts on sale at Museum’s free festive fair

Visitors to one of Birmingham’s oldest buildings can bag hand-crafted bespoke Christmas gifts at a free craft fair taking place this month.

Selly Manor Museum in Bournville, which is managed by Bournville Village Trust, will host the Christmas Craft Fair on Saturday 28 November from 11am to 4pm.

There will be 14 stalls to browse, selling a host of handmade and locally-produced gifts, including jewellery, decorations, candles, textiles, stained glass, natural soaps, cards, cushions, pottery and art.

Santa will also be making an appearance, meeting children in a magical grotto and handing out gifts for children to take away with them.

Daniel Callicott, Museum Manager, said: “The fair is free to enter and is a great opportunity to buy some unique Christmas gifts from talented local vendors.

“Children will be able to meet Father Christmas for a small price, take a look around the Museum and delve into its fascinating Tudor history which, thanks to new research, we now know even more about.

“The Craft Fair and Grotto were both very popular last year, so we’re encouraging families to book early to see Santa to avoid any disappointment.”

A visit to Santa’s Grotto is £5 per child and booking is essential. To book, call Selly Manor Museum on 0121 472 0199 or email sellymanor@bvt.org.uk

Selly Manor Museum is in the heart of Bournville and includes two fantastic historical buildings – Selly Manor and Minworth Greaves medieval hall house.

It regularly hosts exhibitions, educational tours, events and workshops and aims to transport visitors back in time to explore how people lived over 500 years ago.

Bournville Village Trust is a housing association and charity which manages 8,000 homes and provides services to around 25,000 people across Birmingham and Shropshire.
