A museum will be bringing out the magic of Langford as it hosts its first ever fair for fairy believers.

The Museum of Power, which hosts a range of fantastical and whimsical events, will introduce the Faery Fayre to its line-up this September.

Activities will include fairy themed stalls, crafts and competitions as well as a crowning of a fairy King and Queen.

Organiser Lyz Le Fay said: “The Essex Faery Fayre is for all who love and believe in faeries and what they are all about.

“It's amazing really when you mention faeries to people and their faces light up, and there are some who live their life by them.

“We have entertainers, musicians and dancers coming from as far away as Cornwall!

“These have been specially selected for this event.”

There will also be storytelling, hoola hoop sessions, wand making workshops, a labyrinth guarded by gate keepers and many stalls selling everything magical and Fae.

Lyz added: “We are expecting it to be a magical and colourful affair.

“This Saturday 21 we are holding a craft day for people who would like to come along and make decorations ahead of the event.

“We have had so much fabric and other crafty things donated to get us busy.

“We’re also hoping to run it next year as this year’s event is already taking off with people interested in doing stalls and volunteering.

“If people want to come and help out on the day, they are more than welcome as we’re always wanting volunteers.”

The event will take place September 28 from 12.00 noon to 8.00 pm.

Tickets cost £6 for adults, £3 for children, and under 5s can join free.
