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.

Live music will be provided by Sax On TV, an all-female saxophone quartet specialising in television and film themes. They'll be adding some seasonal tunes to their repertoire to provide an upbeat backing track to the shopping experience.

Cake International The Sugarcraft, Cake Decorating and Baking Show features two of world's most expensive dresses on display together for first time. The Debbie Wingham-designed 'Red Diamond Abaya' and 'Black Diamond Dress' will be exhibited at the show entrance and also recreated in cake.

Studded with real diamonds, the dresses are worth over 20 million and come complete with their own security team.
