Woodstock Festive Fayre

Welcome to the Brand New Woodstock Festive Fayre!

People across Oxfordshire are invited to Woodstock’s newest Christmas event on Saturday 24 November. The Woodstock Festive Fayre – taking place at St Mary Magdalene Church, is totally new and is being organised by Wake up to Woodstock (WUTW), the association set-up to attract more visitors to the town. A small preview for locals will take place on Friday 23 from 6pm-8pm.

Doors to the Fayre open on Saturday at 9.30am until 7pm, where an array of specially selected stalls will sell quality items, ranging from unique gifts, festive decorations, bespoke jewellery, prints and clothing. Among the 35 stallholders, will be Richard Hine, founder of British Polo Gin, whose late Grandfather John Hine, once practised as a Lay-preacher at the church.

Speaking from the award-winning business, Richard said: “I’m really looking forward to coming back to Woodstock, but this time in a much different capacity! It’ll be a wonderful event to showcase our organic gins, including our ‘super limited’ sloe gin – which we’re only releasing 720 bottles of in the run-up to Christmas!”

Wake up to Woodstock was asked by St Mary Magdalene Church, to take on the event and warmly welcomes’ as many people to the town that day as possible.

Visitors are also invited to A Night of a Thousand Candles around 6pm on Saturday 24 November. See Woodstock’s new Christmas light illuminations in the town square, formally switched on by Art Historian and BBC TV Presenter, Nina Ramirez. The night will also include theatre and live music entertainment, carol singing from local children and festive food and drink for all the family. Make sure Woodstock’s on ‘your’ list of events this festive season! Keep up-to-date with what’s happening all year round at WUTW.co.uk.

Woodstock Festive Fayre – 24th November


Organised by the non-profit association of local businesses known as Wake Up to Woodstock (WUTW), which aims to attract visitors to the town, the Fayre opens its doors on Friday 23rd November for evening trading from 6-8pm, before the full day on Saturday 24th November from 9.30am to 7.00pm in the newly refurbished St Mary Magdalene Church in Woodstock.

After being approached by the church in the spring of 2018 and asked to organise the next Christmas event, WUTW Chairman Dennis Allen said “We were surprised and delighted to be asked by St Mary Magdalene Church to take on this event which we decided to call the Woodstock Festive Fayre, to express the traditional and artisanal nature of the goods on offer”.

Demand for spaces far outstripped supply, so with over 30 stallholders due to attend, there is a wide range of goods on offer, including: hot and cold food and drinks, festive decorations, jewellery, prints, cards, clothing, scented gifts, home and design items, and many more.

If you would like additional information, or be placed on the Reserve List for a stand, please email  the Fayre Organisers on fayre@wakeuptowoodstock.co.uk

Also taking place on the evening of Saturday 24th November is Night of a Thousand Candles, another WUTW event, in the town square next to St Mary Magdalene Church. This will see the town’s brand new Christmas lights being illuminated for the festive period.
