Banstead Rotary Village Fair 1st July '23

The Banstead Village on 1 July was yet another success this year with 33

stall holders representing a wide variety of local charities and


The Orchard was colourfully set out with tombolas, raffles, bric-a-brac,

cakes, lucky dips, competitions, and many tables giving information to the

members of the public.

The weather was good after early morning rain, and, the sun came out for

another fantastic Banstead Rotary Village Fair. Hundreds of visitors helped

to make it a highly enjoyable event and raise more money for charity.

The event was opened by the Mayor of Reigate and Banstead Councillor Eddie

Humphries. President Jane Illingworth welcomed him, and Fair organiser Roger

de la Perrelle welcomed the public and the stall holders.

The importance of the event is in raising the profile of local groups and

charities. The Rotary Club focuses on the organisation of the event as a key

priority each year.

There was live music throughout the day from the

excellent Old Gits in the morning and Gavin’s Band in the afternoon, a trio

performing 60s and 70s music and their energetic performance was hugely


Banstead Show Choir sprang to fame in the last few years with performances

at many local events and venues. Their singing of several songs from

Broadway and West End Musicals certainly pleased the crowds in The Orchard.

Banstead Rotary would like to thank everyone who regularly makes the Village

Fair possible, the members, friends and volunteers who organise the event,

the organisations and groups who support and donate to the event

preparation, the stakeholders who are such an integral part of the day and

the many visitors who come year after year.

We look forward to seeing you on 6th July 2024!
