Burghfield May Fayre 2015

May Fayre 2015 PosterThe perennially popular Burghfield May Fayre will be taking place on The Hatch, Burghfield Village, RG30 3TH on Sunday 10th May from 10.30am -

This annual community event, staged by the Burghfield Residents Association [BRA], provides a great day out to bring together the people of Burghfield and surrounding villages, and raises funds for local charities, projects and other good causes. Following last year’s event around £3,000 was distributed by the BRA, in addition to the monies raised directly by local charities at the event.

Footfall in 2014 was estimated at over 3,000.

Entry to the event is again free.

This year’s attractions will include something for everyone; we have nearly 50 stalls and events including the fun fair, arena displays by local schools and groups, Zumba to join in with, a circus workshop, a Fun Dog Show, the Craft Marquee, tombolas, plant sales, ferret racing, bucking bronco, climbing wall, bungee bouncing and lots of local charity stalls.

Tadley Brass Band will be playing and events will round off with the traditional participation favourites of Tug-o-War and the infamous Burghfield Egg Throwing competition.
A wide variety of refreshments will be available all day; tea and fabulous home made cakes, a beer tent also selling wine and Pimms, a hog roast and BBQ, a curry stand with a vegetarian option, and ice cream vendors.

Local parking is always limited, a free bus service will run throughout the day, shuttling from the Three Firs Estate, Burghfield, to the May Fayre and the free car parking sites. It will call at all the usual bus stops.

Full details of this and all the May Fayre events can be found on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BurghfieldMayFayreResidentsAssociation?fref=ts.

This year the Burghfield May Fayre weekend starts on the evening of Friday 8th May with a Burghfield Talent Night in the marquee, and continues on Saturday 9th May when the
marquee will stage the Burghfield Barn Dance with live music from Pitchfork, dancing and supper.

Tickets for each event are priced at £18 which includes supper.
