Victorian Christmas Market 2023


VICTORIAN CHARITY CHRISTMAS FAYRE MUSIC, Santa and festive stalls filled a church hall on Saturday at Clacton’s biggest charity Victorian Christmas Fayre. 

Community Voluntary Services Tendring (CVST) held its annual Charity Victorian Christmas Fayre at the Christ Church United Reformed Church in Clacton on Saturday. 

Hundreds of people enjoyed looking around the stalls where they could pick up Christmas decorations, gifts and more. 

There was also a café and performances from SingalongaPen, Mad About Theatre and Women in Harmony. 

Sharon Alexander, CVST’s chief officer, said: “This was the first time we have held our Victorian Christmas Fayre at the United Reformed Church and it was a huge success. 

“We had crowds of people come through the doors to look at the stalls and get a Christmas bargain as well as enjoy some refreshments and entertainment. 

“The best thing about our event is that all the money raised supports local charities. 

“And it’s always such fun – everyone gets in the spirit by dressing up. 

“A big thank you to all the charities that took part and the people who came along to support us as well as the CVST staff and incredible volunteers who helped on the day.” 

Among the stalls were Clacton on Sea SANDS, Age Well East, Creative Expression as well as CVST’s Kennedy Way Community Garden, the Resilience Team with winter advice, and the Jaywick Friendship Café.
