Letter from the organisers
Dear NSPCC supporter
Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our Fair which raises thousands of pounds for vulnerable children and teenagers in Yorkshire and across the UK. We feel honoured to be the Chairs of this fantastic Committee of talented ladies who devote many hours of their free time to make this prestigious Charity Fair happen.
For many happy years we have been based at Castle Howard and have, in this time, raised in excess of £500,000 but now we are ready for a change and a new challenge and we are very excited to announce we will be moving the Fair to its new stately home, DUNCOMBE PARK.
Located near the beautiful Yorkshire village called Helmsley, Duncombe Park is very conveniently positioned. The house is very rarely open to the public so visitors to the Fair will have the unique opportunity to explore the amazing rooms and enjoy Christmas shopping at the same time. The exhibitors to the Fair are hand-picked by our Committee and are chosen because they offer original gifts that are unlikely to be found on our High Streets.
We open our doors on Thursday 17th November with a special preview evening with wine and canapes. On Friday 18th and Saturday 19th November, our doors will open from 9.30am and close at 4pm each day.
You can buy your tickets right here on our website and enjoy shopping whilst raising valuable money for the NSPCC.
It’s a win, win situation and an opportunity to get your Christmas shopping done in great style!
We hope you will come and join us.
Thank you for your support.
With many thanks and best wishes,
Karen Storey & Rachel Fraser
Co Chairs of the NSPCC Duncombe Park Christmas Fair Committee
