We are absolutely delighted to be returning to the wonderful 4* East Sussex National Resort for our fabulous Christmas Gift Fair now in it's 7th year!


If you've not been to this Hotel before, you're in for a treat as an ideally sited venue with access straight off the A22 in Uckfield, East Sussex, offering bright, modern and spacious fair accommodation and over 400 free hard standing car parking spaces for our visitors.

In previous years our fairs have had approximately 60-70 hand picked exhibitors attending, carefully chosen to limit product repetition and offering high quality, unique pieces in fashion, jewellery, beauty, toys, accessories, homeware, gadgets, crafts, artisan makers, designers, food & drink etc. and all offering exceptional customer service our visitors have come to know at our fairs.

In November 2021 we returned after a year off due to shut downs and we were delighted with the support and had a wonderful time with over 1300 visitors attending over the two days, so we can't wait to get the festive season underway this year.

"Thank you Michelle and Fay for organising such a lovely event. The venue is perfect for such a gorgeous fair – we had lots of very positive feedback about the venue, parking, beautiful stands etc so definitely a thumbs up from all the customers we spoke to". Lisa, All Things Chic

If not exhibited with CLF before, we have worked with the venue to ensure a smooth as possible set up and breakdown for our exhibitors with loading/unloading help if required plus complimentary refreshments during set up, plus breakfast bacon butties and packed lunch options to buy.  The fair is on the ground floor (see Gallery) with access for set up/breakdown direct from the car park within a few feet of the fair area.

"A big THANK YOU for inviting us to attend the East National Christmas Fair....it was fabulous!!  Your events are so well organised which takes the stress out of setting up and both Barry and I really enjoyed working at the event - we both said how lovely the room looked and a good variety of exhibitors.  The footfall was amazing, not surprising considering the work you had done to advertise it.  We would definitely like to be invited to attend next year" Debs, Cheese Bomb Gifts

Since creating CLF in 2015 we have built a fantastic following of visitors who have visited us in a number of different venues but have all come to expect a rather special shopping experience.  Our reputation is to offer high end, quality and/or unique products accompanied by good old fashioned friendly customer service in a lovely location. Our ethos is to attract quality over quantity, shoppers not browsers and all who come to buy and stay for up to 4 hours enjoying the options for lunch the hotel offers, refueled for round two in the afternoon, ensuring a super day out of shopping.  

We work hard to continue to build our fair footfall year on year in now our permanent East Sussex home and this year will be no exception with an extensive marketing campaign prior to our fairs through magazine advertising, roadside banners, posters, flyers, visitor email list, competitions, internet listings, social media, radio advertising and various other media.

"I just wanted to say what a wonderful event you put on over the last few days. It was really well organised, fabulous selection of high quality products, great venue and wonderful customers who all seemed to enjoy the event. It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas. Thank you for letting me exhibit my jewellery". Lucy Bradshaw Jewellery
