The new event is earmarked for Monday, October 29, to Sunday, November 4, on the balcony of the National Hall above the Spirit of Christmas Fair.

Such an option was mooted following the closure of the fair in its previous format after its staging last year (October 31-November 2) and consultation with exhibitors.

“Spirit of Christmas is a very popular event and this is an exciting proposition for dealers, many of whom say they need a November fair in their calendar,” said fair director Mary Claire Boyd of Clarion Events.
