Charlie Owen Essex Spring Shopping Fair

The Charlie Owens Essex Spring Fair comes to Cressing Temple Barns

Our first event of the year at one of our favourite places - Cressing Temple. It is also a favourite for exhibitors and the public and they come out to shop.

Set in the glorious surroundings of these medieval barns, it is a perfect setting for our shows.

Exhibitors will include arts and crafts, fashion and beauty, food and drink, gifts and household accessories, outdoor and garden goodies as well as the unique and uncategorisable.

Well behaved dogs on a lead welcome.
