Christmas Craft Fair and Family Fun Day

Sage Gateshead

Celebrate all things Christmas with a fun weekend of carol singing, live music, craft workshops, face painting and a special appearance by Santa Claus. There’ll be lots of stalls selling perfect Christmas decorations and gifts including handmade crafts, jewellery and accessories, bespoke wearable art, framed prints and Geordie gifts.

A highlight of Saturday will be a very very special guest, Bjorn the Polar Bear. Bjorn and his companion an Arctic conservationist travel the world making friends, sharing their story and telling people about the fascinating and vulnerable world of the Arctic. If you’re lucky enough to meet him then you’re welcome to give him a pat – if you’re feeling brave enough. Bjorn is the centrepiece of an informal, magical and interactive performance.
