A POPULAR Christmas fayre has been cancelled by organisers amid cost-of-living concerns.

Beaulieu National Motor Museum today announced its Festive Fayre will not take place this year.

The event, earmarked for December 9 to 11, was set to host artisan creators, makers, crafting experts, and producers.

In an online statement, Beaulieu, together with event organiser Immediate Live, said: “We have made the difficult decision to cancel the Beaulieu Festive Fayre.

“Unfortunately, the current economic climate has made it incredibly challenging to organise an event that will deliver a quality experience for visitors and traders.

“We would like to offer our sincerest apologies for the disappointment and inconvenience caused by this cancellation.”

Ticket holders will receive a full refund (including any transaction fees where applicable) within the next 10 days to the card used to make the booking.

Despite the fayre being cancelled, the attraction will remain open for festive fun across that weekend.

Palace House will be “beautifully decorated” with a Christmas tree in every room, there will be crafts for children, and you may even spot Father Christmas on December 10 and 11.

Festive activities will then continue from December 17 until January 2.
