Christmas Fair at The Donkey Sanctuary

About

Kick-start your Christmas shopping or simply treat yourself at The Donkey Sanctuary's fabulously festive fair in Sidmouth, Devon.

The sanctuary's indoor arena will be packed full of talented local traders selling wonderfully unique items, from beautiful gifts and Christmas crafts to delicious edible treats.

Santa will also pay a special visit to the sanctuary, and taking residence in his Grotto, will provide little ones with a magical Christmas experience to remember (including a small gift).

Winter-warming refreshments will be available at the Fair and from The Kitchen restaurant from 9am - 4pm.

Santa tickets will be available to purchase each day on a first come, first served basis.

Entry and parking at the sanctuary is free. Dogs on leads welcome.
