Don’t bring it down on my head for reminding you that there are only 140 odd shopping days left to Christmas.

It was the Castleisland Christmas Craft Fair organisers who brought this on as they’re up and at a repeat of their hugely successful fair of November 2015.

Though it was held in the throes of one of the most brutal periods of weather, the event, which was housed in the River Island Hotel, was an eye-opening success and one of the real stand out events of last year.

Packed the Town

It was held on Saturday, November 28th and it packed the town with shoppers. The trade the event attracted to town benefited many of the other shops throughout on the day.

This year’s Castleisland Christmas Craft Fair will be held on Saturday, November 26th 2016 – again at the River Island Hotel.
