Why not choose the delightful independent shops in our local towns - Crickhowell, Abergavenny and Brecon - instead of the big high street retailers? How about browsing around our markets and craft centres and chatting to the people who make the goods. Or perhaps you’d like to try your hand at making a gift for your loved one. Here are some dates that will help to turn this year's Christmas shopping into a pleasurable experience:
Check out the locally made gifts
Hundreds of different gifts that are handmade locally
Choose a location that is special to you and turn it into a bespoke gift
Perhaps you’ll find some treasure on these fascinating stalls
Artisan Food and Craft Market during the day, followed by a Night Street Market
Locally made crafts, live music, mulled wine and a special visit from Mrs Claus
A workshop dedicated to celebration breads enriched with butter and eggs, spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger and jewelled with nuts and fruits. Delicious!
Christmas lights, market stalls and there’s even a reindeer parade!
We are delighted that Crickhowell, the closest town to our wharf, is shortlisted for the Great British High Street Award
The festive atmosphere spills over into Abergavenny’s decorated streets
Fresh locally produced food, drink, arts and crafts
