04 Jul Harlow Fayre is returning for the first time since 1879!
On Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August Harlow’s second oldest neighbourhood shopping centre will be buzzing with activities and festivities.
Bush Fair is named after the most important fayre or market in the district that up until 1879, way before the new town was even thought of, was held annually in August providing an outlet for wool and cattle from farms and local products such as pottery from the Potter Street kilns.
The Bush Fair Fayre is being developed and delivered by Bush Fair Traders Association with support from local councillors Ian Beckett and Mark Ingall and aims to raise the profile of the huge variety of shops and small businesses in the main shopping centre and in and around the service bays. The fayre will also celebrate Bush Fair’s role in the town’s history through food, drink, music, dance and entertainment – an eclectic mix of ancient and modern.
The Saturday evening will include an open air cinema experience and Sunday will feature the Big Community Breakfast and Hub and Spoke’s Big Bike Ride.
The Bush Fair Fayre is being supported by Harlow Council’s “Harlow at 70” fund and generous sponsorship from Places for People.
