Fables by the Fireside



Join us for ‘Fables by the Fireside’ - our fabulous winter FUNdraiser, to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. Banish January gloom with a jolly evening of feasting and frivolity.

Either dress up (top half only) with a nod to your favourite character from a fable, fairy or folk tale with a prize for the best costume or accessory (judged by our very own Wera Hobhouse, MP), or dress down – in jimjams and slippers, if you choose!

Entertainment will include atmospheric storytelling and music, a fairy tale themed quiz, interactive games, and a chance to chat with other guests. Excitement will be heightened as we accept final bids in our online auction, which will run throughout January. Take a look now at the fabulous prizes!

We'll deliver a hearty two-course meal (with a vegetarian/vegan option) to your door in the afternoon, with instructions for heating later. See the menu below. You will also be able to choose wine in advance and we'll send glühwein spices for making mulled wine or a non-alcoholic winter punch.

Fables by the Fireside is open to all members, registered supporters and guests. Tickets are £30 per person, and a limited number of Supported Places (no cost) are available by emailing [email protected]

RSVP below to reserve your tickets for the event of the year!

(PS  Donations of auction and competition prizes will be gratefully received. Please email [email protected] if you have something you would like to contribute. Many thanks.)
