If you fancy taking in a Christmas fair in November then the Knebworth Christmas Fair will be perfect for you.
The event is being run by Oakleigh Fairs and it is being held from 10am-4pm on the 11-13th November at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire in the barns and a marquee.
It raises funds for its charities and is sponsored by the local press.
Knebworth House is a grade II listed Tudor building with a garden designed by the renowned horticulturist Gertude Jekyll in 1907. It is still occupied.
The Lytton family have been resident since the 1490’s and Henry Lytton-Cobbold and his family are the present incumbents.
Knebworth’s grounds are known for playing host to huge music events but on this particular weekend the interest will be in Christmas and unique artisan gifts which will tempt and astound visitors.
As you’d expect from a Christmas fair a certain bearded gentleman in a red suit will be very much in evidence with his reindeer so if you have little people with you they’ll love it at Knebworth.
Alongside the jewellery, candles, photographs, handmade cards and craft stalls there will be a rich feast of specialist foods, Christmas themed creations and drinks for people to savour and hopefully buy.
There’ll be meats, cheeses, pastries, chocolates and fine wines for people to fall in love with as they steel themselves for the Christmas season of entertaining.
If you are one of the many exhibitors or retailers at the fair, then please remember to factor mobile fridge hire in to your time at the estate.
As the event lasts for three days and there will be setting up and clearing down to be carried out then it’s worth extending your hire period so that you don’t have to rush.
With food we all know that Health and Safety and Food Standards Agency legislation must be adhered to and obviously you cannot hope to escape the need for facilities by laying goods on the cool November ground to keep it edible and at its best.
The solution lies with expert fridge trailer hire companies like the Newbury based Icecool Trailers.
Clients can hire fridge trailer units for exterior use and these can usually be powered by generators so using mobile fridge hire isn’t prohibited by being in the middle of a field, in the marquee or in the barn space allotted for the fair.
Fridge trailer hire units come in various sizes so they can be tailored for your amount of stock.
The hire fridge trailers are secure and lockable and insured through the mobile fridge hire company.
However, any stock placed in the fridge trailers will require another insurance policy.
Hiring your facilities is a straightforward process and although there is an emergency service available through many of the hire firms please book your hire fridge trailer as early as possible.
The Knebworth Christmas Fair will soon be here. Make sure that you, your delectable wares and a fridge trailer are ready for it.
