A date for your diary!
This year the Barnes Fair will be being held on Saturday 12th July. If you have never been it is a complete must for your diary.
Though it is a little time away it’s good to get ones diary organised as July tends to be a busy month leading up to the end of the Summer Term sometimes dates like these amongst the many other things going on get missed.
I have been a few times now, it is good for all ages including children. My children have a great time, always by chance meeting up with other friends from school, saving up their pocket money and bartering with the stall holders. I taught them unfortunately at quite a young age to barter and now they do it everywhere, sometimes much to my embarrassment.
This is their 40th year for this event & they are taking on the Olympic theme, please come and take a peek at their official website ~ click here.
Barnes Fair starts off with a fabulous parade, decorated floats to give Nottinghill Carnival a run for their money and are flanked by vintages vehicles.
Following on from this is of course entertainment, fairground rides, quiz’s, live music, food, drink, shopping, did I say shopping?
The eclectic variety of stalls is wonderful ranging from crafts giving opportunity to meet local craftsmen and women, see how things are made, vintage stalls, antiques, modern and so forth. There is something for everyone and always a bargain to be had.
Monies raised go to the Barnes Common Association as well as local schools, community groups and schools.
Make a date you really won’t be disappointed!
