Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, all craft, plant and food fairs have been cancelled for 2020. We look forward to welcoming these family favourites back in 2021


Craft, Plant and Food Fairs

Every year the Minster holds a variety of exciting fairs that appeal to all ages. There are numerous stalls to purchase gifts for friends and family which we endeavour to source from local suppliers. Over the years these events have grown in popularity and form a strong link within the community of Southwell and surrounding areas. Whichever event you come to you will find something here for you within the stunning setting of the Minster.
