Llandudno Christmas Fayre

The annual Llandudno Christmas Fayre opened yesterday, and runs though to Sunday. My wife had a wander around this lunchtime and photographed a small selection of what’s on offer…

A snow globe enables you to pelt your friends with fake snow…


…while a hog roast provides warmth on a chilly November afternoon…


The Way to Blue has a stunning display of cyanotypes…


…While next door, tillyandarthur have a wonderful Christmassy display of handmade gifts…


…There is even a stall selling wooden reindeer, complete with red noses!


More information is available on the official Llandudno Christmas Fayre website.

The Great Orme seen from near the end of the promenade.

The Orme is roughly two miles wide and one mile long, and is also home to over a 150 wild goats (a number of which have featured before on this blog!). Much more information about the Great Orme can be found here.
