Glenshiel Christmas Fair
October 27, 2017 @ 9:00 am - October 29, 2017 @ 2:00 pmR50
It’s almost time! The much anticipated Glenshiel Christmas Fair will open to the Johannesburg public on Friday 27 th October until the afternoon of Sunday 29 th October. This annual fundraising event takes place inside the home and grounds of ‘Glenshiel’ atop the Westcliff Ridge. All proceeds go towards the eye care, community health work and first aid training projects of the Order of St John and its operating foundation St John– South Africa (previously known as St John Ambulance).
We are proud to present 78 stalls this year of which one third are new to the ‘Glenshiel’ experience.
Every year the fair showcases the best of local and international style, bringing everything from adults and children’s clothing, fashion accessories and jewellery, to funky ceramics, beautiful linen and the cutest shoes, alongside delicious eats and treats; and of course those extra special stocking fillers.
Rest assured, this is no flea market. Rarely seen by the general public, ‘Glenshiel’, is a beautiful Herbert Baker mansion and national monument. The event is a great opportunity to admire the panelled rooms and heraldic banners of the Order of St John whilst shopping for new and unusual gifts.
Visitors to the fair will be able to enjoy the magnificent gardens overlooking the treed suburbs of Parkview, Zoo Lake and beyond. Whether it’s a lazy lunch under the jacarandas, a ‘posh pâté platter’ or just a ‘spot’ of tea and cake, the Food Lawn will offer everything from delicious burgers, paella, crêpes, fresh juices and a variety of crisp wines and cocktails.
Opening times for the fair are:
Friday 27th Oct: 09h00 – 18h00
Sat 28th Oct: 09h00 – 17h00
Sun 29th Oct: 09h00 – 14h00
