Buxton Rotary Club's Annual Summer Fair and Bazaar

10am-4pm Saturday June 1st

Buxton Pavilion Gardens and Octagonal Hall


A day for all the family to Celebrate Summer

Back in its traditional home in the Pavilion Gardens on Saturday June 1st will be the Buxton Rotary Club's Annual Charity Bazaar and Fair. The event is expected to be bigger than ever before, with an increased emphasis on entertainment for younger family members - and it is still free to attend.

The Octagon will be busy with 40 stalls prepared by  local charities and  voluntary groups with supporters  on hand to explain their aims and activities. Some plan to raise funds from the sale of goods on display. There will be a  £50 prize for the stall which best interprets the theme Celebrating Summer, which  the Mayor of the High Peak has been invited to judge.

Along the Promenade and in the adjacent Gardens will be a range of food stalls , games and entertainments.

Featured this year will be favourites such as  Buxton's famous Billerettes, Fairfield Brass Band and the High Peak Big Band, together  with renewed opportunities to try your skill at Archery, Hockey.

Present for the first time will be a  climbing wall, and the Shakespeare Juke Box  which will present bite size excerpts from the bard's  plays featuring  witches, fairies, and a storm at sea.

The Buxton Sandy Beach will be back but also a mermaid who will need help from youngsters to complete her scales. Will she go for a swim in Buxton?The Fair is open from 10am to 4pm,with free entry. To help pay for the hire of the Octagon, Rotarians will be selling tickets for a raffle with cash prizes of £250, and quality prizes donated by local businesses. This will be drawn at3.30pm at the Fair.
