One of the main events in Haslemere at Christmas is the Christmas Fair.  It's that time when we all begin to get Christmassy and all the local producers gather to display (and hopefully sell) their festive wares - exotic pies of wild boar, pigeon, mallard, etc, local cheeses from Tunworth to Winslade, from Norbury to Tornegus and from Duddleswell to Olde Sussex, and all the modern produce too - curry sauces, chutneys and jams, not to mention gifts and decorations.  Needless to say, no need to buy lunch that day!

Here's part of the High Street

and some very Surrey stalls.

Hemingways gets into the mood

as does my favourite High Street shop

Now we just await the panto season to begin.  Here are two of the actors getting us all into the mood.

Even the cyclists are in the mood.


  1. All the fun of the (Christmas) fair :-)) I'd like to know what exactly is added to make the hot dogs 'posh'.

    1. I expect they come in a brioche, Mitch.

  2. These kind of activities bring live to life isnt it .

  3. Jolly times in deepest Surrey. Did you actually buy anything?

  4. Did I say Surrey ? Sorry I meant deepest Hampshire, of course, although you are quite near the border.

  5. I like the idea of Posh Hot Dogs. What makes them posh?
