At Christmas, Poplar Tree is a winter wonderland of sparkling ideas and inspiration. Whether you’re wishing to decorating your home and garden, or just purchasing gifts, you’ll find everything you need amongst our breathtaking displays.

    Each separate display stylishly combines tree decorations with furnishings, tableware, seasonal floristry, Christmas figures, ribbon and festive decor.

    We hope our displays inspire you in the run up to Christmas.

    Poplar Tree will hold its seventh successful magical Christmas Fair this December. Situated just less than a mile out of Durham’s City Centre with the convenience of everything & much more in one location.

    The Christmas Fair will be housed in a marquee situated on the land at the rear of the Garden Centre, adjacent to the nearby River Wear. The marquee will be showcasing within the region of 70 stalls.

    Entry to the event will be £3.00 for Adults and FREE for Children.

    Our aim is to create another Fair that exposes the creative talent of the North East, providing prominent selling opportunities for quality exhibitors to sell their goods in the run up to Christmas.

    We are currently inviting applications from exhibitors living in the North East selling and creating diverse and interesting products, without conflicting those currently sold on the premises. Quirky arts and crafts, collectables, vintage and fashionable clothing, eco-friendly goods, unique giftware, handmade cards and a selection of exclusive food stalls will be showcased.

    Extra festivities will include mulled wine for those adults wishing to get into the Christmas spirit, a visiting Santa along with his real Reindeer for an added sparkle to the Children’s day, festive rides, and much more.

    The Marquee will be decorated festively providing a glistening hub in the heart of Shincliffe.
