Country Living Spring Fair

Event preview

THIS year’s Country Living Spring Fair will be held at the Business Design Centre from March 20 to March 24, 2013.

Spring is almost here – March 20 is the vernal equinox and officially the first day of spring. With the prospect of warmer days, gardens bursting into bloom, outdoor activities and summer picnics, the Country Living Magazine Spring Fair is perfect for planning ahead.

Three halls are filled to the brim with 400 diverse and individual exhibitors, selected from across the country to present original products that range from interior accessories to outdoor essentials, to spring clean and refresh the home and garden.

The Country Living Magazine Spring Fair showcases original enterprise with children’s toys and clothes, graphics, paper work and personal pampering. There is everything for the homemaker, promoting hand-made and home crafts.

The food hall celebrates the UK’s finest food producers and their regional specialities, with opportunities for tasting too. From cheese makers to spirited distilleries; butchers and bakers with special sausages and salami’s; Mediterranean bread and pastries and candlestick makers to boot. Leith’s Cookery School will also be giving daily demonstrations for seasonal suggestions.

Visitors can find inspiration from the expert demonstrators and hands on workshops. TV presenter famed for the Halcyon River Diaries, Philippa Forrester, will be at the Fair every day, giving advice about gardening and composting in the Nature and Outdoor Theatre.

Visitors can also bring out their inner artist in the Crafting Room or the Art Workshops, led by people who turned their hobbies into their livelihoods. Whether interested in stitching and sewing, gardening, flower arranging, cookery or even landscape painting there are ideas to intrigue and entertain everyone.
