The Fayre returns for 2021!
Saturday 17 July, 12 noon – 5pm
Following the missed year of 2020, we are hugely excited to be reviving the Fayre this year! We have pushed it back a month from the usual date in June to allow for any possible delays in the relaxation of Covid-19 rules applying to social events. Consequently, for this year, we are referring to it as the Summer Fayre! Apart from that, we will be sticking (as much as realistically possible) to our tried, tested and beloved format.
More details will be uploaded here as they are finalised, but for the time being, please note that applications are now open for both Catering stalls and General stalls. We have also started our volunteer recruitment drive – see details below. And last but not least (local businesses take note!), applications are now open for Fayre headline sponsors, advertising in the programme, and donations of prizes for the ever-popular Raffle.
The Catering Stall application form and information can be downloaded as a PDF (for printing) here and as a Word document (for emailing) here. Completed applications should be returned to us by Friday 7th May.
The General Stall and information sheet can be downloaded as a PDF (for printing) here and as a Word document (for emailing) here. Completed applications should be returned to us by Monday 12 July, and paid for by Thursday 15th July.
Fayre sponsorship, Programme advertising, and Raffle Prizes
We welcome any and all expressions of interest regarding these fabulous opportunities for local businesses and organisations to publicise their work. For further information including prices, please refer to the combined info sheet and application form, available for download in both Word and PDF formats.
Please note that the deadline for applications is Tuesday 1 June 2021. Feel free to contact us with any queries at:
To whet your appetite for the return of this hugely popular event, explore galleries of photos of the 2019 Fayre and the 2016 Fayre. You can also watch this fabulous short film put together by the folks at Aloha Films London. Thanks to everyone who took part, especially if you ran a stall, took part as a performer, or volunteered.
Volunteer at the Fayre
A small core team of Fayre organisers have already made a start, but there is a (as ever!) a huge amount to be done. We would therefore be delighted for new people to join the team. It’s a great way to meet neighbours, give something back to the community, and get a real sense of satisfaction.
There are a wide range of roles which means there’s something for everyone. As well as helping out with organisation in advance, we are particularly keen to recruit a large team of volunteers to help out on the day. You don’t need to help out for the whole day; most roles are split into shifts of just a couple of hours – so you’ll still have plenty of time to enjoy the many attractions of the Fayre itself.
Whether you have enjoyed the event in the past or are new to the area, please consider giving up a few hours of your time on to help make the event a success.
From July 1st , we will need people to help distribute our promotional programme. These can be collected from several depots in and around the Conservation Area, and we aim to distribute to a wide range of local businesses as well as handing them out outside schools and train stations.
On the day itself (Saturday 17th July), those who have offered to help run the Fayre will split up into teams to take charge of specific aspects of the organisation, each with its own Team Captain. In the weeks leading up to the Fayre, we will circulate full details of the roles, as well conducting a thorough briefing and introduction to the rest of the team on the morning of the Fayre.
Teams include the following:
- Marquee and tent set-up
- Hazard Tapes/Bunting/Signs/ Flags set-up
- Stewards (stalls / traffic flow)
- Litter management
- Children’s competitions
- Arena events
- Raffle ticket sales
- Brockley Society tent
- Tea and Cake stall
- Barbecue stall
- Event strike down (tents/gazebos)
