Wokingham May Fayre, Wokingham, Berkshire

  • Fri 08 May 2020 - 10am To 5pm

    Wokingham’s 26th annual May Fayre is scheduled for VE Day, Friday, 8th May, with many thousands expected to attend. We are now taking applications for stalls (charity, local crafts and commercial) and will be able to accommodate up to 180 stallholders. Last year we had around 100 stalls, so this is a substantial increase since we are returning to Elms Field following its recent refurbishment. The May Fayre will cover the area from the Town Hall, down Denmark Street, through the Plaza and out to Elms Field.

    Started in 1995 by the #Wokingham Lions Club, the May Fayre is one of the largest street fairs in the south of England. This year’s May Fayre coincides with the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day - stallholders may wish to have a VE Day theme, and there will be a prize for the best themed stall. We will be marking VE Day with some special events on the stage, including joining in with the national tribute at 3pm.

    Our VE Day-themed entertainment will include the Arborfield Military Wives Choir, a 1940s Close Harmony Girls Group and the sound of the Bagpipes. Our main stage will feature all of our usual May Fayre entertainment from local community groups. Children’s entertainment will take place all over the town, and will include a Punch and Judy show, magic shows, petting zoo and fun fair rides.

    The main goal of the May Fayre is to provide a low-cost and fun family event, and enable local charities and other groups to raise money for their causes. It’s a wonderful day out for families and people of all ages, where we celebrate the town’s culture on the stage, with many local groups performing.
