Christmas is notoriously expensive. You want to treat your loved ones to the finest food, drinks and gifts, but it all racks up. Ease the pressure this year by picking up fantastic exclusive discounts at Living North’s Christmas Fair.
We all know that the best presents come glazed in icing and topped with all manner of sweet treats – and when it comes to brilliant bakes, you can’t beat The Pudding Parlour. They will be offering lucky dip boxes of different cakes for a bargain £10. They will also be launching their new cake jars (think the chocolatey goodness of caramac and rolo combined with cake) for the new price of £3.50 each.
