Festivities begin early at Epworth’s Old Rectory when the historic Grade 1 listed building plays host to a Christmas Craft Fair.

There will be numerous stalls selling a variety of goods, including toys and seasonal gifts, handmade jewellery, silk flower arrangements and local honey.

Other attractions include a chocolate-only tombola, light refreshments and children’s entertainment.

The Old Rectory is famous throughout the world as the childhood home of John and Charles Wesley, who founded a movement that went on to become the international Methodist Church.

The Christmas Craft Fair is taking place on Saturday, December 6, and will run from 10am until 3pm. Admission is £1 for an adult and children under the age of 12 get in free.

The event is part of an ongoing campaign to raise money in order to restore the Old Rectory - an accredited museum and a registered charity – to how it would have looked when occupied by the Wesley family in the early 18th century.
