Festive events we're attending this year

22 November 2021

Are you looking for the perfect Christmas presents for your loved ones? Chailey Heritage Foundation are attending a variety of Christmas markets and festivals this year where we will be selling unique and hand made gifts that you won’t find in the shops!

Even better, all money raised from the gifts on sale will go to supporting the children and young people at Chailey Heritage Foundation.

We’re also benefitting from Brighton Panto bucket collection and holding our own bucket collections in a garden centre, supermarkets and train stations so keep an eye out for us in your local area.

Here's a list of events we’ll be attending this festive season:

• UpCountry Santa weekends

Come and see us at UpCountry Garden Centre along with Father Christmas this festive season. Visiting Father Christmas is free of charge and each child will receive a small gift.

There’s also a magical winter wonderland to explore and reindeers at the entrance to the garden centre.

Father Christmas will be at UpCountry between 10am & 4pm on the following dates:

• Saturday 27th November

• Sunday 28th November

• Saturday 4th December

• Sunday 5th December

• Saturday 11th December

Jeremy’s Christmas Market at Borde Hill Garden

Indulge yourself in some festive shopping in the lovely surrounds of Borde Hill Garden. The hand-selected stalls will showcase local products, from delicious food and drink to tempt your taste buds, to unique crafts and gifts for all the family.

Chailey Heritage Foundation is lucky enough to be the only charity at the event and we will be selling handcrafted wooden and knitted toys as well as charity Christmas cards. Entry is free.

We’ll be at Borde Hill Garden on the following dates:

• Saturday 11 December
