 Penny I’Anson, Organiser of Cancer Research UK Christmas Fair, commented:

 “We are delighted to be marking 25 years of this very special event at Scone Palace, the venue of our first Christmas Fair a quarter of a century ago. In that time, we have raised over £250,000 for Cancer Research UK, a figure of which we are very proud.

 “At this year’s event, every stall has been specially selected for their originality, quality and craftsmanship. There is something for everyone to enjoy at our Cancer Research UK Christmas Fair and, if you are looking for an extra special Christmas present for a loved one this year, then this is the place to visit.

 Lady Mansfield of Scone Palace, added:

 “The Cancer Research UK Christmas Fair has raised a phenomenal amount of money for charity in its 25 years and we are thrilled to be hosting the event again in 2015. We look forward to welcoming many people through our doors to browse the wonderful range of festive stalls being showcased in our Palace State Rooms.”

 Entrance is £6.00 per person and payable on arrival. The Old Servant’s Hall Coffee Shop and Gift Shop will also be open during the Christmas Fair for visitors to enjoy.
