Thank you all so much for making The Early Early Christmas Fair 2021 such a huge success!

It was great to see so many of you again coming through the door – smiling faces full of excitement at being out and about and doing what we always do! The atmosphere was incredible – the energy and enthusiasm as fantastic and wow did you shop!

To see the fabulous marquees being put on the beautiful polo fields at Tedworth Park in the sunshine was exciting. Then seeing the whole event transform with all the stalls and various parts of the Early Early Christmas Fair is an extraordinarily feat – when all you start with is a piece of grass and no running water!

Meeting friends, shopping together at all the wonderful stalls was so much fun and we cannot thank you enough for supporting this iconic flagship fundraising event for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

I would like to thank all of you who came and supported us…. all our stallholders who have generously donated Tombola & Raffle Prizes and are giving 10% of their takings to the ABF – The Soldiers’ Charity.

I would also like to thank Maggie Elliott and her team for her hard work on the Tombola, Katie Boswell and her team on the Raffle and Emma Harrison for the delicious curry supper on Tuesday evening plus all the team that come together to make this such a success. Olivia Barrington, Andrea Benford, Tessa Bott, Ally Cardozo, Alicia Green, Francesca Green, Ian Holmes, Linda Higton, Steve Hollis, Tamsin Hollis, Sarah Pittman, Caroline Rawlins, Jenny Snowball and Alma Young for all their help, both before and during this event.

We have now taken this event #virtaul with over 120 stallholders many of whom were at the Early Early Christmas Fair but also many others – our first hybrid with amazing offers from our stallholders and every purchase you make online 10% goes to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

We work hard to deliver this event and it was tricker than ever this year after 2 years break, and despite petrol shortages and some quite impressive rain you all flocked in and supported us and we cannot thank you enough and hope you will join us online to continue to shop
