FENLANDER: Time running out for traders to take part in St George’s Farye in March
TIME is running out for traders keen to take part in the hugely popular St George’s Fayre in March on April 17 - only a few stalls are still available.
The organisers are also still looking for local performing artists who would like to showcase their talent at the annual community event, which takes over the whole town centre.
A huge crowd is expected for the fayre, which is one of Fenland District Council’s “Four Seasons” events. Last year more than 7,000 people poured into the town and the organisers are hoping for an even bigger turnout this time.
The traditional funfair in Broad Street is being expanded and there will be plenty of other entertainments for children, including activities at the library, an art competition, “make a shield” and free storytelling.
New attractions will include the Grassmere hog roast and Monster Mash stalls.

The fayre is organised by FDC working with community organisations with the support of March Town Council. It will run from 9.30am-4.30pm and the town centre will be closed to traffic all day.
Traders or performers interested in getting involved should contact FDC’s markets and events team on 01354 654321
