The annual Craft Fair at the Abbey Buildings starts tomorrow with a wealth of British hand-made and artisan products. The Fair runs from Thursday to Sunday this week and then again another Thursday to Sunday slot next week, after a change-round of exhibitors. Set in the beautiful medieval buildings that were once part of the great Abbey it is a real treat for a day out.
