Enjoy a weekend of Christmas Cheer at Kirkwood’s annual Christmas Fair!

Get ahead of your Christmas shopping at Kirkwood’s annual Christmas Fair on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November! With a variety of stalls across the weekend, it’s the perfect family event to kick-start the festive season.

Join Kirkwood Hospice at the University of Huddersfield’s Oastler Building this Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November as event organisers are set to welcome everyone for a magical weekend!

This year’s Fair will take place from 11am until 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Christmas is now only a few weeks away, visitors can get on top of their Christmas shopping at this wonderful local event. Browse a wide selection of independent stalls selling seasonal trinkets and the perfect gifts for all the family!


Whether searching for ladies clothing and accessories, homewares, alcohol and food gifts or unique jewellery, there is plenty of choice to treat yourself or your loved ones!

Over the weekend, visitors can enjoy festive entertainment from local groups and a range of food and drink available from the University.

This event is one for the whole family, bring your children along to enjoy face painting and keep them entertained at the Christmas arts and crafts area!


Kirkwood provides care and support to anyone affected by a life limiting illness in every corner of Kirklees. The event will raise vital funds to provide support to families when and where they need it.

Organisers were delighted to invite this year’s sponsors, Vodafone and CityFibre, down to the Hospice earlier this month.

Vodafone’s Kate Godson said: “Vodafone Gigafast is delighted to be supporting Kirkwood Hospice with our partners at CityFibre at this year’s Christmas Fair. We are looking forward to engaging with the community about our joint project and spreading some Christmas cheer!”
