The Council's Christmas Craft Fair will be held at St Mary's Guildhall this week.
Like last year’s event, this year’s fair is open to everyone. It will be held on Wednesday (27 November) from 12noon-2pm.
Many of the stallholders from last year have signed up again, and it's a great chance to pick up a unique festive gift and make some money for charity. There will be a Go Cv stand where people can sign up and collect cards.
Stallholders have all paid £10 as usual, which will go towards Lord Mayor Cllr Linda Bigham’s chosen charities of the Mercia MS Therapy Centre, Age UK Coventry and Warwickshire and the Coventry Boot Fund.
Stallholders will keep any proceeds they make.
The fair has proved a popular attraction in recent years and features stalls full of handmade goods – from jewellery to cards and artwork and woollies to paintings and cakes.
Organiser Helen Williamson, said: “The fair has always been popular, and last year it was brilliant to see the interest from members of the public.
“The skill that goes into the crafts on sale always amazes visitors and it is a great chance to pick up a quality, handmade gift for Christmas."
