Winsham Street Fair delayed until 2022


Unfortunately the Winsham Street Fair, which had already been postponed from last June to June 2021, is now going to be taking place in 2022 instead - thanks to ongoing uncertainties and risks of Covid-19

So get in early and put Saturday 25th June 2022 into your calendars because it's all surely got to be over by then?!

We're very sorry about the postponement, yet again, of this village highlight, but hope everyone understands the difficulties with trying to organise a big event where planning and costs associated with it have to start 6 months in advance.

What Winsham Street Fair Committee will be organising this year, however, is a Scarecrow Competition! With the theme of 'Our Heroes', the whole of June can be spent enjoying the homemade scarecrows around the village and entries will be judged on what should have been our Street Fair day of Saturday 26th June. Details to follow in due course...

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.
