Banstead Village Fair
The weather as good and the sun shone for another fantastic Banstead Rotary Village Fair. Hundreds of visitors and 33 exhibiting stalls helped to make it a highly enjoyable event and raise more money for charity.
The Mayor, Councillor Frank Kelly officially opened Village Fair with a short speech. He then went with President John Hannam touring every stall to meet all the organisers and stallholders.
There was live music throughout the day from the excellent Gavin’s Band, a trio performing 60s and 70s music and their energetic performance was hugely enjoyable.
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.
More than 33 stallholders provided plenty of other activities including lucky dips, competitions, home made cakes, bric-a-brac and information about local charities and groups.
Banstead Rotary Club 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 stallholders who are such an integral part of the day and the many visitors who come year after year. We look forward to seeing you again on 1st July 2023!
