A Christmas fair with more than 100 vendors is returning to a racecourse this festive season.

The Artisan Fair has been popular since it was launched in 2021 by Mark and Meryl Raines of MJR Events at Fakenham Racecourse.

The couple runs two events per year, with one in the spring and another around Christmas.

This year's winter market will take place on Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12 - and it is set to be even bigger than the 2022 event.

More than 100 local vendors will be in attendance showcasing an array of food, drinks, and handmade gifts for Christmas. 

All exhibitors at the fair come from East Anglian companies and Mr Raines is proud of the fair's local focus.

He said: "It's important to hold events that recognise the vast range of skills in our area.

"You'll come away with things you didn't even know you'd find - there are just so many hidden gems."

Exhibitors will be announced online in the run-up to the fair and tickets can be bought in advance on the Norfolk Artisan Fair website for £5.

Under-16s go free and free parking is available.
