Bradninch Town Fair
In 1208, the charter of King John granted the burgesses of Bradninch a four-day Fair at the feast of St. Dionysisus. The 2021 revival of the Fair having been a success, it's happening again for 2022 on Saturday 24th September. The Fair is a town-wide celebration of all that makes Bradninch a fantastic place to live. This year's event will see the return of the Bradninch Bolt Fun Run/Walk and of the Community Picnic with stalls and entertainment on the Cricket Field. There's also a new addition of a Local Produce Show - and there's scope for more!
The Fair's ethos is inclusive, local and fun, creating an opportunity for fundraising, socialising and promotion of local activity. This year's event will be whatever the folk of Bradninch choose to make it and we'd love to have lots of local people, organisations and businesses involved in doing things on the day. See below for the latest news and opportunities.
2022 Stall Registration Open!
If you, your organisation or business are interested in having a Stall on the Cricket Field on Fair Day, please drop us an e-mail. Bradninch and Hele-based folk take priority and there's no charge for having a stall - though we would welcome a modest donation from profits to help the Fair to happen in future years.
Produce Show 2022
This year sees the addition of a Produce Show on the Cricket Field. There'll be opportunities for all ages and a range of categories including a box of vegetables, a box of fruit, a tin foil garden, a cream tea for one, tastiest sponge, best jam and best chutney. Full details and information on how to enter will appear here in due course.
