Carrdus School, Overthorpe Hall, Banbury OX17 2BS


2020 Carrdus Christmas Fair cancelled:  the committee has had to make the very difficult decision to cancel this year's Carrdus Christmas Fair.  With the space available it would have been impossible to run a safe and successful event. 2020 has proved to be a very challenging year for all of us and we feel very sad that this much loved fixture of our calendar won't be going ahead this year.   We do hope you understand, but the logistics are such that it wouldn't be a successful event for our stallholders, and it wouldn't be the fabulous fun event it always is for our fairgoers either. We have left the decision as late as we could in the hope we could go ahead, but regrettably, there is no way we can make this work in 2020. We do however plan to be back with a Christmastastic bang for our next fair on 20th November 2021.

Carrdus Christmas Fair has been a much loved fixture of the Carrdus School calendar for many years. And to our delight many of our regular visitors tell us that for them our magical Fair marks the start of Christmas. With more than 50 super stalls showcasing a wide selection of goodies (including food stalls), potential Christmas present dilemmas can be solved in an instant.  Mrs Claus's Café serves delicious refreshments and a modest but yummy lunch menu. Our adorable School Choir enchants Fair goers with two mini carol concerts. Little ones visiting the Fair will be delighted by Santa Claus in his festive Grotto supported by his enchanting impish elves. Our tombola has some fabulous prizes a number of which are generously donated by stallholders and we have we have the ever popular and rather tempting bottle tombola. Add to that our Licensed Bar selling our scrumptious mulled wine and it's fair to say our Fair truly is a magical and wonderfully fun start to Christmas.

Parking is free. There is a door entry fee of £3 for adults (children under 12 have free entry) and all door proceeds are donated to our nominated charities.

Open to all, and we would love to see you there in 2021.
