Christmas Fair

Crewe Market Hall

 Join us for a day of shopping and festive fun at our very first Christmas Fair!

You will find a wide range of stalls offering festive produce and crafts to help you tick off that Christmas list – and maybe to pick up a treat or two for yourself! We’ll be holding a raffle and there will be activities for children throughout the day too.

Crewe Market Hall offers a fantastic selection of food and drink outlets and later in the day the town’s Christmas lights switch on event will take place.

Tree of Lights

Dedicate to a loved one

Send a festive message to a friend, family member or work pal

Remember someone special

Pick a colour of the light, a bauble or present under the tree

Everyone who visits the page will see it and your message.

Add a bauble to the tree and dedicate a message to someone special.

You can even create your own page to light up your own tree. It's a perfect alternative to sending christmas cards and can help you feel connected with your employees, colleagues, friends and family.

You can even add a photo or your company logo which appears when you hover over the light and all from the comfort of your own home.

By doing this you will be getting us a step closer to achieving our aim of creating a dedicated children's waiting area at VIN & will help us to fund other projects to improve patient care and experience at VIN


Bring family, friends or colleagues together to hold a festive tea party on Thursday 8th December (or any day to suit you in December). Get your mince pies and tinsel at the ready and pop the kettle on!

Festive fun, food, and fundraising, perfect combo…
