Magdalen Road Christmas Fair 2016

Magdalen Road was closed for the afternoon of Saturday 3rd December 2016 for the annual Christmas Fair

Announced for passers-by to see
The road was closed from the traffic lights ...

... to the junction with Denmark Road
In between were rows of stalls,

more stalls,

and more stalls,

and some were brightly coloured

The local shops had their own stalls

True to its ethical roots, Leela reused an old display stand for its socks

The panettone was imported; the apricot harvest in St Leonard's was a little sparse

Fish in a roll - enough to feed 5,000?

St Leonard's church offered DIY Christmas Cards

Bright decoration

Street entertainment

Getting into the Christmas spirit; lots of Christmas jumpers were on show

Soft toys on sale

... and children's clothes.

Delicatessen delights


Mulled wine
Stop, admire cards, and visit the shop to look at clocks

Stall-holders had bright hats

and so did shoppers and the stalls; it was a cold afternoon

So you might like some mulled wine
... or hot chocolate.

Even the ATM did a roaring trade!

Pink and purple colours were in fashion at Oliver's Bakery

and in the Advent socks

One of the many craft stalls

Empty chairs - not for long!

Colourful crafts and backpacks
