IT was all glitter, glue and glutinous cakes as a popular crafts fair returned on Saturday.

The Fairy Tale Fair, which launched in summer 2012, was back at Brighton’s Patcham Methodist Church for their latest Christmas addition.

As well as more than 35 craft and vintage stalls, there was face painting and a vintage tearoom full of home-made treats.

Singers from the Patcham Youth Silver Band were also on hand to keep visitors entertained.

The event is the creation of Brighton-based designer and illustrator Claire Montgomery.
