Crickhowell is definitely the place to be this festive season, be it for shopping or catching up with friends and family over coffee or a meal.
A popular annual highlight is Late Night shopping on 7 December when the independent retailers, cafes and pubs will join in the festivity. Who could resist having their gift purchases gift wrapped in Webbs, experiencing a taster session of Reflexology & Indian Head Massage at a discounted price with Truly Holistic or turkey rolls and mulled wine at Cashells?
Choirs and music in various locations throughout the evening, Christmas tree decorating at CRiC and a wonderful varied Christmas Fair in the Clarence Hall all guarantee to make this an evening to remember. Art, craft, gifts and food producers all under one roof in the Clarence Hall will offer great variety and a unique festive shopping opportunity for everything from jewellery, fused and blown glass, ceramics and textiles to traditionally smoked foods, fresh bread and cakes. The exhibitions in both the oriel CRiC gallery and the CRiC Studio both embrace the festive season.
With refreshments in the Clarence hall offered by the Rotary Club of Crickhowell, a Hogroast by The Vine Tree and coffees, teas, cakes, snacks, mulled drinks by Y Deli Fach, a converted horse box, there will be plenty to tempt the taste buds. It will also be an opportunity to meet Odonells Bakehouse and Zero Waste, tenants in the newly converted Corn Exchange. Books, outdoor gear, vintage furniture and beautiful clothes are all on offer in the charming Crickhowell High Street, making it an ideal shopping opportunity or just a fun evening out for all, whatever the weather. Additional parking will be signposted on the day.
Crickhowell extends a warm invitation to all to visit during the festive season and New Year.
