Welcome to the web site of Croston Festiitvities where you will find information about Croston village and our festive celebrations.

The Croston Christmas Fair is a beautifull traditional village Christmas celebration organised by local people for the village. This traditional fair recommenced in 2008 following the decision by a number of villagers to put together ‘Croston Village Festivities Group’ to plan, organise and run the day.

Croston Village Festivities Group is comprised entirely of volunteers who are determined to deliver a non-profit making event. We meet regularly and are happy for villagers to join us.
