Fun and festivities at Westport Christmas events


Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is inviting everyone to come and celebrate Christmas at two very special festive themed events later this month.

The nature conservation charity is holding two Christmas events on Sunday 29th November at its Westport Lake Visitor Centre in Longport, Stoke-on-Trent.

Between 10am and 3pm, the Trust’s free Christmas Fayre will be held where visitors can browse goods from a wide range of locally based and independent stall holders.

Also taking place on the same day is a Christmas crafts making event between 11am and 2pm, which will give children aged between three and 11 a chance to make unique seasonal decorations using natural materials.


Alison Cross, Education Officer at Westport Lake Visitor Centre, said:

“With Christmas just around the corner, we’re looking to create some festive spirit with these two events at Westport.

“The Christmas Fayre will give everyone a chance to come and do a spot of Christmas shopping and buy that extra special present for a loved one.

“The crafts event is an opportunity for all the family to get stuck into making a range of Christmas crafts and cards using locally sourced natural materials and of course glitter!”

Traditional mince pies and hot drinks will also be available from the café at Westport Lake Visitor Centre.

Entrance to the Christmas Fayre is free, and the cost for the Christmas crafts event is £3 per child. The crafts event is a drop in session and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Westport Lake Visitor Centre is located on Westport Lake Road, Longport.
