In the Crafts for Christmas show visitors can pick up handmade decorations for the tree and edible goodies such as farmhouse cheeses, specialist wines and luxury chocolates. A gift wrapping service means items can be expertly transformed into works of art, ticking off some of the Christmas 'to do' list. Visitors can also see how the experts do it - within the theatre area acclaimed creative paper and gift wrapping artist Neelam Meetcha will be demonstrating her wide range of paper and wrapping skills.
