Woodborough Village Fair

After 2 years the long await is almost over and the final preparations for Woodborough Community Association’s Spectacular Summer Fair are being put in place. This year’s event is so big it has had to relocate onto the sports field behind the Village Hall on Saturday 24th July from 1 till 4pm.

Bring your picnic blanket, or your deck chairs and relax in one of our picnic areas. There will be a fully licensed bar on hand sponsored by Holden Copley Estate Agents and a BBQ with local Chambers’ sausages and burgers for sales. Alongside these you can eat and drink yourself around the world from a host of local artisan stalls. From pizza to pakoras, coffee to cake or damson jam to damson gin we have a stall for you. Looking for a gift – or something really special – we have stalls for that too. From designer holidays to luxury children’s parties, handbags to doggy bags, pottery, aromatherapy, embroidery………. in fact we have well over 50 fantastic local food and craft stalls already booked.

Throughout the day we have have an absolutely packed lineup of events including a live band, classical vocalist, choir, stage school, dance group, martial arts display and a fun dog show. The event will close at 4pm with the Grand Prize Drawer sponsored by Bodkin Plumbing and Heating. This is lining itself up to being an absolute belter this year with over 20 brilliant prizes already donated and more to come. Look out for further details of Prize Drawer tickets going on sale soon at £5 each.

There are loads of activities for the youngsters too. Get on board a real fire engine with Arnold’s Blue Watch Fire Crew who will be on site, win a prize at hook a duck, have your face painted, tire yourself out on the bouncy castle and then chill out with an ice cream and have a story read to you at Leo’s Corner.

If the excitement gets all too much why not stroll up Roe Hill to the Institute to see the Arts Club display. On the other hand, if you can’t bear the thought of the day ending at 4pm, why not call in at one of our two great village pubs, the Nag’s Head or the Four Bells, after the event and carry on the party well into the evening.
