There will be over 18 exhibitors including a stall that will be run by Destined members with a learning disability.

There is car parking on either side of the centre on Foyle Road and the Destined café, that was destroyed in an arson attack prior to the Covid pandemic, will be open for teas and coffees and snacks.

Speaking prior to the event Paddy Arbuckle, Craft Fare organiser said: “We are delighted to be hosting our first craft fare in our new building, it allows us to bring the wider mainstream community into a disability setting and hopefully people might get a bargain as well. Any funds raised by the event will go towards the charity and help us provide more badly needed services for our members. On behalf of Destined I would like to take the opportunity offer season greetings to everyone.”
