The long established Michaelmas Fair is a one day street fair involving continuous entertainment, music, displays, exhibitions and parades alongside the popular street traders. The event attracts a diverse range of stallholders covering handicrafts, collectibles, food, plants and voluntary groups. The range of different stalls is a key attraction which helps to bring visitors to the fair each year.
Each year the entertainment begins at around 12 noon with a procession of vintage cars and steam engines. The entertainment continues throughout the day with the final lantern procession as darkness falls at 8-9pm.
Pitches are available in two main locations:
Each pitch faces the centre of the roadway down which the visitors will pass and may include a mix of roadway and pavement, to the rear of each pitch is the pavement with house. Your pitch will be marked out and you will be sent a corresponding number and a description of where your pitch is on the street.
