About Thirsk Christmas Fayre

The Fayre was brought to life by three like minded residents who have lived here many years and are devoted to the place we call home. Quite simply we love living here and after talking to many tourists over the years who come here in the summer they said they would come back ANYTIME because they love it too!

Christmas is a time for celebration, shopping, relaxing and of course reflection. We could not think of a better place for you to do all of those.

We can’t thank the people of Thirsk and surrounding areas that have helped us enough. Whether they have given financial sponsorship/donations or just “chipped in” with resources, time and ideas their input has brought the event to what it is today.

Thank you everybody!
