I went - and bought ten slices of cheese for a tenner and 3 xmas eve boxes for a fiver.
Pretty good value all in all - however if I would have had to pay £4.50 to get in it wouldn't really have been good value at all. Apart from shopping the only thing to do other than shop is walk around listening to Wizzard on their tinny speakers and a load of out of tune kids singing in the tent.

Conwy food festival is a million times better and I hope the Conwy Christmas fair on the 20th December is better as well, can't be much worse!

How did you get in ?  ?   :D    and was it busy ?

We got in free as we were doing something for a charity - This was about 6.30pm on the Friday - was moderately busy, not packed. The out of tune kids stopped singing about 7.30 and all the stalls closed, seemed a bit early to me. To be fair an hour there was more than enough, can't see many people staying much longer than that.

I believe the directors run the Llandudno Xmas Fayre, the Alice Town trails and Active Terrain ltd, and others

I wonder what the connection is between the Llandudno Development Parrnership and the Llandudno Christmas Fayre Community Interest Company?

One of the directors is also a director of Green Pearl People.

"Green Pearl People is a progressive, dynamic and hands on HR solution provider."

It's always interesting that those running consultancies find ways to put together sentences which actually mean nothing whatsoever.

Hands on solutions involving  human resources could be asking for trouble methinks.

Well done B, and it also sounds like a good idea, I am sure there will be a lot of interest in this venture.

Indeed.  Good to see some sensible use for the place.

There is a definite divided opinion, over The Llandudno Xmas Fayre, those who gave good revues, and those who believed it to be overpriced and boring, my own opinion is, I wish it were one thing or another, privately run or council, and not a C.I.C. this Fayre could do a lot of good for llandudno if handled correctly.

Ticket price increase sees drop in numbers at Llandudno Christmas Fayre

Despite the decrease in numbers event organiser Barry Mortlock said the event had gone really well and the fayre was “just about perfect”, revealing the ticket price of £4.50 was here to stay.      :o     :o

But Mr Mortlock said there would be no more price increases on tickets over the next few years, just simply staying as is to cover the costs of the event.
He said: “We believe we have created an event that we can be proud of.
“It looks good for the town as well.
“I stood there looking at the event everyday and thought to myself there is not much more we can tweak, I am proud of what we have created.
“It was a really really good event, and we put out questionnaires throughout the course of the weekend and we got back some really positive feedback.”

The event proved popular as queues formed down Mostyn Street to get in and around the Arriva Bus Santa’s grotto to get in.

The wide variety of stalls, entertainment and exhibitions was on show across the four days in and around Trinity Square, a new look set up for the fayre in recent years, showcasing a range of locally based businesses and talent.

Llandudno hospitality association chairperson, Berin Jones, said it was great to see Llandudno so busy over the weekend with the fayre bringing in extra visitors to the area.
Mr Jones said: “This event is seen as the starting point where the town starts turning itself on for Christmas.
“It is always lovely here at Christmas time and the Fayre kicks off the festive season.
“It was a good busy weekend though, and the weather helped make that happen.”

Readers took to social media to give their verdict on the Christmas Fayre and its new entrance fee price.

Marion Kennedy, on the Pioneer Facebook last week, said: “Not paying £4.50 per person entry price. Disgraceful."

While Cat Rogers, on the Llandudno Christmas Fayre’s Facebook page, wrote: “This event is organised every year by private organisers and every year they surpass themselves and make it bigger and better, no one’s pockets are being lined by the entrance fee.

“The entrance fee goes back into everything you see in the fair, church fees, entertainment, wages, electric, cost of cabins and marquee’s not to mention the business and people it brings to our beautiful town, helps out local shops and hotels.

“If you have a problem with the cost maybe you should bring it up with the council for not providing a free fayre and stop moaning and bad mouthing people who work tirelessly to start off Christmas in our little town.”  ref Pioneer
