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.

The Committee would like to welcome all punters to a Race Night in the Jubilee Hall on Saturday October 12th to raise funds for the 2020 Street Fair.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and a ploughman’s supper will be served during the interval.  Tickets will be £6 for admission, including the supper, and can only be bought in advance from the Village Shop.  There will be a bar for the purchase of drinks.

There will be opportunities to buy your own horse(s) for only £2 per horse before the event from any of our Committee Members: Alison and John Llewellyn, Martin and Rachel Leigh, Sally Lines, Dom Douglass, Jamie Bell, Sarah McEvansoneya or Judith Hill.

We look forward to seeing many of you there - the support from the community is much appreciated and vital to raise the funds necessary to hold a successful Street Fair next June.

2020 VILLAGE CALENDAR

With the arrival of the New Year, Winsham Street Fair Committee is already thinking about the 2020 Village Calendar and we need your help!

We’d like to get as many people involved in this as possible by using photos, drawings or paintings you might have taken/created of the village and its surroundings that capture the spirit and character of Winsham, so that we can have a wide selection to choose from for the 2020 Calendar.

 

PHOTOS: If you’ve got a good Winsham photo that represents a particular month of the year, and it is high resolution (essential for good quality reproduction), then please email it to winshamstreetfair@gmail.com with the following info:

  • Your name
  • The month it was taken
  • Where/what it’s of
  • Your consent for it to be used, if it is selected for the 2020 calendar

 

DRAWINGS & PAINTINGS: If you have a photo but don’t have email, or if you have a drawing or painting that you have created (children’s contributions welcome!), then call Sally on 30168 and we’ll arrange another way.

Depending on the response we get, then we might even get everyone involved in helping us choose – much as we’d love to, there is only so much space in a calendar!
