Shoppers will have the chance to do some early Christmas gift buying this weekend when Lamport Hall hosts its annual craft fair.

The fair will include a range of stalls set out inside the former stable block as well as outside.

The hand-made wares on sale will include mosaics, stained-glass mirrors, jewellery, soaps, jams and chutneys, as well as liqueurs and much more.

Aside from stalls, Owls to Behold will be in attendance with a variety of birds on display.

The hall itself is a well- known historic venue within Northamptonshire, built between 1655 and the 18th century.

The Isham family are known to have lived at Lamport for more than 400 years until the death of Sir Gyles Isham, the 12th Baronet, in 1976. Today the hall is owned and run by the Lamport Hall Preservation Trust.

Refreshments will be available at the fair and there will be free parking.

Admission to the event is £3.50 for adults, £3 for pensioners and £1.50 for children aged between 11 and 16. The halls and gardens open under separate admission between 2pm and 5pm (last admission 4.15pm). The fair will be open on Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 5pm.
