St George's Fayre

St George's Fayre will take place on Sunday 24th April 2022

The town centre streets will be pedestrianised to create space for a bustling street market and fun fair.  The opening parade will take place at 10am. This will be followed by live music and dance performances throughout the day. Enjoy a wide variety of fantastic street entertainment free of charge.  This year we hope to commemorate both the 75 year anniversary of VE day which would have taken place in 2020 but also the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.  We will be welcoming some very special performers including the D Day Darlings and the Bombardiers!

The number of traders continues to grow year on year, with over 130 stalls in the town centre offering an eclectic range of arts, crafts, gifts and produce. Visitors can indulge in some delicious street food too from Pad Thai noodles to fresh meatballs to homemade lemonade there will be something for all tastes. We of course welcome Lesley Carey's fun fair to Broad Street for the 14th year along with a whole host of family activities in the Acre Area, Library, St Peter's Church and Museum. 

Thanks must go to all those who have worked hard to create an exciting line up and for the kind sponsorship from local businesses.

If you would like to book a stall, please follow the guidance on our events page.
