Visitors invited to snap up handmade gifts at festive fair

Visitors to Selly Manor Museum, one of Birmingham’s oldest buildings, will be able to snap up some unique Christmas gifts at a craft fair taking place next weekend.

The historic building, which is managed by Bournville Village Trust, will host the festive fair on Saturday 22 November from 11am to 4pm.

Talented people from Bournville and beyond will be selling a host of locally produced handmade gifts, including pottery, stained glass, jewellery and decorations.

Father Christmas will also be making an appearance, meeting children in his special grotto and handing out gifts for children to take away with them.

Daniel Callicott, Museum Manager at Bournville Village Trust, said: “The craft fair is free to enter and will have lots of unique and locally produced Christmas gifts to buy. For a small price, children can also meet Father Christmas.

“All in all, it’s an event that is sure to get visitors in the festive mood.”

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 was saved from demolition by the chocolate manufacturer George Cadbury almost a hundred years ago.

Originally a mile from its present site, it was dismantled then moved to the heart of Bournville and opened as a museum in 1917.

The museum offers visitors the chance to delve into Tudor history and it houses the Laurence Cadbury collection of furniture.

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.
