2020 Winsham Street Fair postponed by a year

Winsham Street Fair Committee has made the difficult decision, in light of recent government announcements and restrictions about Covid-19, to postpone this year’s Street Fair to next year.

It’s disappointing, but the current situation is changing daily and there’s no guarantee that it will improve in time for the 27th June. By postponing now, we also avoid incurring costs that we would not be able to get back nearer the time, so all your generous contributions to funds raised are safe and will be carried over to next year. We’ve contacted partners, stallholders and entertainers and have asked them instead to put the date of Saturday 26th June 2021 into their calendars, because things should surely be back to normal by then?! Any queries or questions, please contact us on winshamstreetfair@gmail.com

Winsham Street Fair is a biennial event dating, in its present form from the mid-1980s. It has it's roots in the Charter given to the parish by Henry the Third in 1262, to run during the last three days of June each year. In the 21st century it follows the end of June date, and is a biennial event lasting one day.
It remains similar to the original thirteenth century event in that gives an opportunity for the parish to gather for a social event, with plenty of refreshments available, entertainment, and the opportunity to pick up a bargain form one of the many stalls manned  by vendors and craftsmen and women.
Organisation of the one day event fills the two years between, which involve all sorts of fund raising events needed to bring the event together.
