WELCOME TO OUR ADVENT FAIR
South Devon Steiner School is once again transforming its grounds into a creative, enchanting world for its annual Advent Fair on Satur-
day, November 17.
Advent is the time before Christmas which is traditionally a time for quiet reflection and preparation, in a period when the days are at their shortest and we are all awaiting the ‘return of the light’ which begins with Christmas.
The advent fair upholds this mood, providing beautiful experiences and activities in a serene atmosphere.
Unique to our fair are the much-loved whimsical craft activities such as candle dipping, a crystal cave and advent boat sailing (walnut candles) which will again capture the imagination of visitors.
There will also be a few new attractions such as a treasure hunt, firepit for making wooden mushrooms and the ever-popular pony rides. Other activities for the kids include a puppet show, angel garden, lucky dip apron and more…
There is much to attract the adults too! There will be a host of wonderful stalls offering beautiful gift ideas for Christmas and lots of opportunities to win great prizes, amazing art, crafts, treatments and more.
Our Fair has become renowned for its fabulous, home-made cuisine. Come hungry to enjoy home-made savouries, cakes, wood-fired pizzas and mulled apple juice. Music will play a bigger part of the Advent Fair this year, and yes, we will of course open the doors to our fabulous Second Hand Stall for amazingly good prices on clothes and bric-a-brac. The school shop will also tempt you with wooden toys and an array of nature-inspired gifts and stationery.
The Advent Fair is a popular event with people coming from all over the country to attend it. The school appeals to visitors to use the complimentary Vintage bus as a Park-and-Ride from the bus stop behind Seven Stars Hotel in Totnes, Dartington, Cider Press Centre and Woodholme car park, Buckfastleigh.
Parking at the school is extremely limited and is reserved for those unable to use the bus at a cost of £5 per car. For more information, please contact the school on 01803 897377 or visit www.southdevonsteinerschool. co.uk for map and bus timetable.
