22nd Annual Drayton St Fair
2nd September 2017, 11am-4pm, 50p per person & free parking
For the 22nd year Drayton closes it's roads to traffic to host the Drayton Street Fair, raising money for good causes.
Because of last year's inclement weather, one marquee was ripped from it's moorings, they failed to reach their target for their chosen charity Bibic; so once again they will be raising money for Langport based Bibic. Bibic does great work for children and young people with neurological or genetic conditions. They will also raise money for village projects.
Craft and Produce stalls line the streets, there is a Grand Prize Draw and Tombola, climb the church tower to see the view, Mr Punch, bouncy castle and classic cars.
Music will include the Kingsbury Episcopi Brass Band and other local musicians.
Bacon butties, cream teas, hog roast, pimms and ice cream, plus the Drayton Arms will open.
