New venue - The Great Stratford Teddy Bear Event.
Returning after a couple of years break and taken over by a new organiser, we are delighted that the Stratford Teddy Bear Fair is returning this year. The venue was supposed to remain unchanged, the Stratford ArtsHouse, but we have just been advised by the organiser that this venue is to close in May 2018 and so she has had to find us a new home. The new location is the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Bridge Foot, Stratford-Upon-Avon, CV37 6YR (which I think is the hotel the old Stratford fair used to be held in years ago, although it wasn't a Crowne Plaza then.) The date of the fair has moved to July 8th, it was previousy held in June but the date has been altered to avoid clashing with other events. The fair is open from 10.30am to 3pm, there is lots of parking and refreshments will be available. We will have a great selection of new bears and hares with us on the day and would love to see you there. Plus Stratford-Upon-Avon is a gorgeous town with wonderful history and the attraction of the river and the canal so you can make a day of it, or even a weekend. If you would like more details of the fair or the new location, please let us know.
