The Great Western Teddy Bear Fair
A huge hug for Tiverton when the Teddy Bear fair comes to town.
Teddy bear makers from the South West (and further beyond), descend upon Tiverton Pannier Market for what is currently the only teddy bear fair in the South West.
You will find fabulous, top quality handmade bears from some of the best bear artists in the country. If you are looking for something a little older, there will be a large number of 'retired bears' where you will find everything from a Beanie Baby to perhaps a Steiff. If your bear needs a lovely chair, or a playground set, or even a new set of clothes, then we have you covered. Have you ever fancied making your own bear? Teddy bear kits and a rainbow of mohairs and faux furs will be available.
Entertainments will be featured throughout the event as will refreshments.
You could win a gorgeous, handmade bear in the raffle, or many other superb prizes. All proceeds will go to The Exmoor Search and Rescue team. Representatives of this important charity will be at the fair for anyone interested in what they do and sell you one of their rescue teddy bears.
We are lucky enough to hold the fair in a gorgeous, grade two listed, victorian building. The hall is surrounded with beautiful trees and flowers with seating and picnic benches.
Many of the regular traders, and a few invited guests, will also be open on the day. It all adds up to a very colourful and special event. See you there.
