The New Horizons Appeal, in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice, are proud to announce the dates for their annual Autumn Gift Fair 2016. Once again, the prestigious fair, which is sponsored by Crest Nicholson, will be held in the stunning grounds of the historic Knepp Castle, and launch with an exclusive preview evening on Wednesday 21 September before an all day fair on Thursday 22 September 2016.

The boutique style preview evening offers ticket holders an exclusive opportunity to browse beautiful and unique stalls ahead of the main fair, whilst enjoying a glass of bubbly and canapés. Preview ticket holders can also return to the fair for free the following day.

With more than 70 carefully selected, high quality stalls, the Autumn Gift Fair offers visitors an unrivalled shopping experience. Selling everything from fashion wear, gifts, home wares, children’s items, and local produce, you’ll find exceptional gifts, at reasonable prices, for all ages under one roof.

Run by the New Horizons Appeal Committee for many years, the Autumn Gift Fair has become one of the ‘must not miss’ events in the local community’s calendars. The fair is a well established event that the New Horizons Appeal hold to raise funds to support their local hospice and to date, they have raised more than £2.5 million for the local charity.

Suzanne Connor, New Horizon’s Appeal Co-ordinator at St Catherine’s, said: “We’re really looking forward to this year’s Autumn Gift Fair. Each stall provides a percentage of their takings as a donation to the hospice, so why not come along to enjoy a fabulous lunch with friends and purchase some exclusive goods whilst raising money for a fantastic cause? There’s no better reason to shop!”

Tickets for the preview evening, which takes place from 6.30pm – 9pm cost £15. Tickets for the main fair day, which is open from 9.30am – 4pm cost £5. Tickets can be purchased online and will also be available on the day.
