Fayre set to pull in bumper crowds

Evesham Editorial 23rd Jun, 2018 Updated: 26th Jun, 2018   0

A PACKED programme of events is set to draw visitor to Evesham with the town’s popular carnival and the Port Street International Fayre which organisers claim will be bigger and better than ever.

Port Street will be completely closed to traffic next Sunday, July 1, right up to Lidl – so no cut through into Church Street.

This makes it safer for pedestrians around the Swan, and will allow attractions and stalls right up to St Peter’s Church.

The whole street will be packed with stalls, with the now famous Ferris Wheel by the Swan. During the day there will be acts on the stage by the Angel Vaults, organized by vintage singer Betsy Harmony, and through the afternoon the action moves to the Swan with bands including Led Hendrix, Blackmax and the Priates and Mr Wolf.

Most of the Port Street traders are joining in this year, from all nationalities, and running stalls on the street outside their shops. There will be street food, street entertainers and attractions.

The event now spreads into the ‘Kids Zone’ in Workman’s gardens. There will be plenty the family with climbing wall, sumo wrestling and bungee run from Croft Farm, stand-up paddleboarding on the river from Bonkers Activities, Lizzy’s Busy Bus, inflatable fun and more.

St Peter’s Chuch is joining in with style this year with a treasure hunt and a £100 first prize raffle in aid of their East Window Appeal.

Kim Bonk who helps coordinate the event said: “This is such a great genuine community event, everyone joins in to make it happen – please pop down and join us for the day, or in the pub, and let’s celebrate our town.”
