We are delighted to announce that The Christmas Country Fete has a new long term home.

After feedback from our Stallholders, and from the public via Facebook it was quite clear you wanted The Fete to be in the country, and most wanted a garden setting.

After looking at a number of options for The Fete, going forward we are excited to advise that in 2019 The Fete is moving to :

Lyddington in Mt Thomas Road, Fernside.  

 31st October 2019

We are so grateful to Sally for allowing us to use Lyddington going forward. Lyddington is one of North Canterbury’s top gardens which will look spectacular in late spring when The Fete is on. The gardens have a wonderful area for The Fete stalls, a wonderful space for the Wine & Food area, combined with lots for great trees spread throughout the area for shade and atmosphere.

We have a area directly opposite with plenty of parking and a great mobility park right behind the stalls.

Lyddington is an easy 40 minute drive from Christchurch into the country, with some wonderful views of the foothills all around. Anyone looking for accommodation will find plenty in Rangiora just 15 minutes from Lyddington.

Put the date in your calendar now, and keep watching for updates as we move forward and confirm demonstrators etc for this year.
