Feel your senses throb to the drummers’ beat, take a donkey ride, guess the name of the little pony, buy your Christmas trees, have nip of gin, or a nibble on a spicy Jamaican pastry, wander about on the Church Green and up and down the town’s main streets, shuffle round the two big crafts tents and buy your last minute special gifts, greet your neighbours, stock up on mistletoe to attract festive kisses, spot a meerkat (!!!?) No wonder Much Wenlock’s annual Christmas fair is the town’s most popular event.

Looks like great fun, Tish, and these are wonderful photographs. Happy holidays and happy 2010.
All the best to you, Jamie.
What a lovely event, Tish! Happy Holidays and all the best for for 2020.

Warmest seasons greetings to you, fabbest Fab Four of Cley.
Such a fun event! Thank you for sharing. 🙂
I think we need as much fun as possible, don’t we, Amy 🙂
Merry Christmas to you, Tish!
A very handsome meerkat??? But everything else seems to fit. 🙂 🙂 A very merry Christmas, Tish! Time for you and him to break out the gin. Our very best to you both in 2020!
The meerkat. Yes, I’m not quite sure where (s)he fitted in. A new arrival the MW Christmas Fair. All the very best to you and Mick. Chin-chin.
Looks like the place to be.
Ha ha! Nice!!
Looks like lots of fun, Tish. We’ve been watching some more episodes of “Midsomer Murders”and this reminds me of something that might be on that show, albeit minus the murders, I certainly hope! Enjoy the weekend.
Yes, hopefully no murders, Janet, but I can see the connection location-wise. Happy weekend to you too.
what fun . . . wish Winchester’s Christmas Market had even an ounce of your festivity, localism and happiness. Ours is so commercial now
It does have the feel of a village fete, which is probably why it’s so popular. And quite a lot of different performances going on – choirs and bands etc.
It looks like a wonderful event, and better yet, no snow!!
May your holidays be filled with good cheer 😀 Merry Christmas, Tish.
Yes, no snow. But now lots of rain. Wishing you and yours all the very best for the festive season. Joanne.
Jamaican curry patties in Much Wenlock? Now that’s a surprise! Glad you had a dry day for the event, even the field doesn’t look too muddy. Hog roasts remind me of Ludlow, and a broken tooth! Here we have the Montol festival today in Penzance but unfortunately it is bucketing it down so for yet another year we are probably not going to have a look. I do wish this rain would let up for a week or two… it all gets a bit much.
I’m only sorry I didn’t buy some. But I was a bit preoccupied as I’d just broken a tooth too – and without the hogroast. And as for the rain, it’s been awful these last few days – one big squelch in Wenlock.
The rain really is debilitating. I am so tired of it.
A couple days respite here, but not sure it’s extending to your domain. All the best to you, Jude – whatever the weather.
Very festive. Including the Japanese drummers!
We have our multicultural inclinations here in the shires. They were jolly good drummers too.
Not from Turkey…
That looks like it was great fun
It was, Mak!
That looks like so much fun. Yhanks
A good time had by all, I think.
A Merry Christmas market! Wish you a wonderful festive season, Tish!
All the very best to you and yours, Ann-Christine.
Great images. Have a happy christmas.
Thanks, Pete. All best wishes to you.
Happy Christmas Tish!
All the festive best to you, June.
Looks like a fun event. The meerkat??
Wishing you and your family a happy and peaceful Christmas. Perhaps a virtual gin toast, to more sane times ahead.
Am ready and upstanding for the gin and that toast, Su. May the universe grant us all a sanity upgrade.
I’ll drink to that.
Hope you managed to get the tooth seen to BTW.
It got shored up! Thanks for asking.
A very fun response Tish. Merry Christmas to you!
And a merry Christmas to you, Tina. Cheers!
Did you attract festive kisses??? And did you have a good Christmas? We did, thanks to my granddaughter’s determination to have a “real” Christmas (tree, carols, presents) something we haven’t done for many years. Although we stuck with feasting! Enjoy NY Eve and have a splendid 2020
Happy New Year, Meg, and Christmas was indeed v.good. Just back from a week on Anglesey, watching the light on the Welsh mountains and on the Menai Strait.
Enjoyed every photo – and loved the ending critter!
Also / the placement of the other photos was excellent – from the opening food photo (Inviting is to select) to the leaving with the Christmas trees – fun post
Thanks, Yvette. Seasons greetings and Happy New Year.
same to you author Tish
This is such a lovely galaxy of fun and joy, beautifully captured. Wishing you a grand success in the year ahead and much more joyous moments to cherish.
Wishing you Tish a wonderful 2020 Happy New Year!!!
Signing Off 2019 from wondering “Makeup & Breakup.”
Many thanks, Nihar. All the best to you for 2020.
Thank you Tish.
God Bless You!!!
Thank you so much for this fun “on display”, Tish! With delicious food, books, gifts, activities, … way to celebrate Christmas. 🙂
p.s. I apologize for being late on commenting.
No need for apologies, Amy. Thank you for popping in here 🙂
