Pilgrims Victorian Christmas Fayre

Saturday 19 November 2022 - Sunday 20 November 2022

Join Pilgrims Hospices for a fabulous Victorian Christmas Fayre on 19 and 20 November 2022 at the beautiful and historic Kennington Hall.

Come and join us this weekend at our all-new Victorian Christmas Fayre. Celebrate the countdown to Christmas with Pilgrims Hospices; all for a good 'claus'.

With indoor and external stalls brimming with seasonal crafts, gifts, delicious refreshments, entertainment and games for all the family. Whether you’re looking for the perfect present or simply want to get in the Christmas spirit by soaking up live festive music, there’s something for everyone.

Wrap up warm and potentially bring waterproof jackets (Sunday may be showery). The event takes place within the historic Kennington Hall (Canterbury Road) and is both an indoor and outdoor event, with stalls and games inside and outside in the beautiful grounds. Both card payments and cash will be accepted, although cash is preferable.

There will be lots to keep children entertained in the craft corner, including decorating a gingerbread man or painting a plate. You can also have fun trying one of our new games:

  • Snowballs in a Bucket
  • Pick a Candy Cane
  • Snowman Hoopla

And there is a lot of fun to be had on the 70ft inflatable Gauntlet Run, which may test your stamina (subject to the wonderful Kent weather)! 

There will be gifts galore to help with your Christmas shopping, whilst children are entertained by our magician and special guest appearances from Elsa and Anna from Frozen along with Superman and Wonder Woman.

Don't forget to visit the man of the moment – all the way from the North Pole – Santa himself, with his elves in his new grotto!

By attending, you’ll be helping Pilgrims Hospices to support people across east Kent who are living with an incurable illness.
