Annual Christmas Fayre at St Faith’s Church
Food, Drink and Presents as well as Carols
Don’t miss this year’s St Faith’s Christmas Fayre which takes place Tuesday 22nd November, 6pm-9pm, at St Faith’s Church on Windmill Road, Brentford. Now in its third year, the St Faith’s Christmas Fayre is a popular community event with over 1,000 visitors attending last year.
Choirs from Lionel Primary School and Gumley House Convent School, children from Chiswick Pop School & Stage Academy, Brentford Belles and St Faith’s own choir will be performing throughout the evening.
Entrance to the fayre is free and local pub The Lord Nelson will be selling hot food, beer and other drinks from their stall (last year their mulled wine proved so popular that additional supplies had to be brought over from the pub…)
The Fayre organisers are proud to promote local small businesses and artists with each stallholder offering something special for Christmas ranging from food & drink, toys & games, jewellery, books and handmade cards & gifts. We really do have butchers, bakers and candlestick makers!

This year we also have Sue Montgomery of Thai Cooking School , Northfield Avenue.

We’re really looking forward to this year’s Fayre – I’m tweeting about it now @stfaithsfayre - A lot of people love the idea of a head start on getting ready for Christmas ”
