Countdown To Christmas Fair – Tickets To Be Won!

 THE Ultimate Christmas Fair is fast approaching and looks set to become Liverpool’s definitive Christmas shopping experience and we’ve got 6 pars of tickets to give away! Just retweet the link to this story @GoodNewsLpool for your chance to win.  The event – taking place between 26 and 29 November at the new Exhibition Centre Liverpool – will act as a one-stop-shop for visitors looking to find high-quality, distinctive gift ideas, with businesses offering a range of fashion, beauty, crafting and food products to browse and buy. Not only will the show allow visitors to tick off their Christmas shopping list early, it will also offer them the chance to sample an array of the country’s finest artisan food products in the Festive Food Hall. From homemade chutneys to delicious cheeses, there’s something for everyone – whether you’re a seasoned foodie or a gastronomy novice. Sponsored by Tefal and Mercedes-Benz Liverpool, the fair also promises to offer cooking, crafting and fashion tips, with Michelin-starred celebrity chef, Alan Murchison, taking to the stage to provide live demonstrations, while gift wrapping expert, Arona Khan, will be on-hand to show visitors how to wrap the perfect present. The exhibition is also set to feature a night of glamour with its Fashion & Fizz evening taking place on Thursday 26 November. The show, fronted by Heart FM presenter, Lorna Bancroft, and complemented by Vidal Sassoon hair styling demonstrations, will see the catwalk paraded with the latest designs – including those of Liverpool-based headliner, Mark Melia. Official charity partner, Alder Hey Children’s Charity, will benefit from a one-off auction of a one-of-a-kind hand-crafted rocking horse, donated by master craftsmen, Stevenson Brothers, and signed by rock royalty, Sir Paul McCartney, as well as from sales of children’s tickets to the four-day event. The rocking horse, modelled on Sir Paul McCartney’s very own horse, Moonstar, is available for bidding via eBay, and is expected to attract keen bidders from all over the world.  Sharon Burrell, event director, said: “We’re really excited to be making the final preparations for such a unique shopping opportunity, which gives attendees access to some of the finest products from a wide range of independent, British retailers. “The event not only offers visitors the chance to get all their Christmas shopping done under one roof to avoid the horror of the high street in December, but to really immerse themselves in the Christmas spirit, with winter workshops, festive fashion shows and live entertainment taking place over the four days. I feel a visit to the Champagne bar will also be called for after shopping till you’ve dropped!” Tickets are now on sale priced from £14.95 from www.theultimatechristmasfair.co.uk or by calling the box office hotline on 0844 8000 509.
