I went to the Festive Gift Fair at the NEC (National Exhibition Centre) in Birmingham, on Saturday. This is my second year going, and it really gets me in the festive spirit! It is full of cute little stalls selling everything from food, to days out (wine tasting, car experience days), to shabby chic items. Not forgetting all the Christmas decorations and ornaments that you can find there! It was very busy, we struggled to move around the stalls at one point because there was so many people, it is definitely not somewhere you can get through in a hurry. The tickets are priced at £9, you are able to buy them online or when you arrive at the NEC (but you run the risk of no tickets being left).
If you want to get to the NEC by train, then you will need to get off the train at Birmingham International and follow the signs indoors towards the NEC and your chosen exhibition. The NEC in Birmingham also hold hundreds of exhibitions a year, so if this one doesn't take you fancy, then there may be something else that will!
