In 1976, local people came together to save a derelict piece of land in Bedminster, south Bristol, from developers. Windmill Hill City Farm (WHCF) is now the oldest city farm outside London.

The Farm Christmas Fair on Saturday 12 December, 11am-4pm,admission only £1, marks the start of a year of celebrations. It will be a fun-filled day with tons of attractions for kids, adults and families, including:

  • The launch of the WHCF Anniversary Calendar – featuring photographs taken and voted on by visitors and farm staff
  • Not one, but two grottos! Grab a gift in the traditional Santa’s Grotto or mine for gems in the Crystal Caves (children loved this so much last year we’ve brought it back! You literally go into a dark cave and bash away until you unearth a beautiful crystal to take home!)
  • Mulled wine (made to a secret farm recipe!), mince pies & roast chestnuts
  • Christmas trees for sale • Christmas market with locally made gifts
  • Children’s Christmas crafts • Tombola
  • Live music: local musicians play alternative versions of your favourite carols!
  • Barbecue selling farm-reared rose veal • Camp fire

And there’s one more special attraction – help the farm kick off its year of birthday celebrations by visiting the Fabulous Farm Photobooth – make a small donation and have your picture taken – share with the world why you love the city farm!
