Christmas Craft Fair

November 20, 2022

Looking for gifts? Maybe something nice for yourself? Some jewellery perhaps. Local ales, cheeses, Northumbrian sausages, Persian spices? How about fragrant soaps, stunning photographs, handmade pottery, studio glass or lifesize wooden birds? Or something else entirely?

Whatever you are looking for, the Brancepeth Castle Craft Fair, 25-27 Nov, 4 miles west of Durham has something for you. Nearly 70 stalls, each selling something truly unique, are laid out through our large function rooms.

We have been hosting craft fairs in our impressive and historic setting for nearly 40 years, and this Christmas will be the biggest fair since 2019. So why not visit us? Entry is £4 (£5 first hour, OAP discount available) and tickets are on sale at

While visiting, don’t miss out on a drink and the chance to sample some castle-made cakes, soup, hot dishes and more at one of our cafés.
