a full weekend of faery fun for all the family!
Come along to the glorious Dee valley where the faeries live in the castle on the hill!
This is one of the largest faery events of the UK calendar. Tink has gathered traders from far and wide. There are activities for children and grown-ups including FREE wing and wand making workshops, FREE circus skills, FREE storytelling, a vintage fun fair, face painting, and FREE live music - with Dr Zig's Bubbles to dance to! Inside the arena you can browse the Faery Market where you will find a huge number of stalls offering lots of gorgeous faery goodies like jewellery, fabulous fey clothes, faery houses, faery dolls and figurines, candles, steampunk curios, carved wood furniture, faery doors, crystals and much more. We have fantastic photography where you can be transformed into a real faery, beautiful owls to pose with, alternative therapists and psychic readers, and tempting tasty treats for the foodies. Tink also hosts inspiring teachers, speakers and authors, all keen to share a wealth of words and wisdom.
