All The Fun of The Fayre

December 23, 2014 by Smock Alley

We promised a wonderful day for all the family and we can proudly say that on Sunday December 14th the first ever Smock Alley Christmas Fayre more than delivered.

Christmas Fair (141)

The Banquet Hall buzzed as shoppers came to browse the assortment of buns & treats, handmade jewellery and cosmetics, clothing, original art and festive gifts on display at our indoor Christmas market before stopping for mince pies and mulled wine or cider courtesy of our resident chef extraordinaire Paul Clune.

As well as being enthralled by a visiting pirate and princess from the Kingdom of Enchantasia, the children at the Fayre were ecstatic to meet the big man himself, Santa Claus, and some of his happy elf helpers. A highlight of the day was Santa’s reading of The Night Before Christmas in the beautiful candle-lit setting of the Boys’ School.

And of course, special thanks must be given to our Ensemble-in-Residence Tonnta who brought real magic to the Fayre with their selection of Christmas music and carols, easily some of the most beautiful performed anywhere in Dublin this festive season.

Now, after all that there’s nothing left to do but wish everyone who came along, and all of you reading, a very Merry Christmas from the team at Smock Alley!
