The Old Town Autumn Fayre - 12th September - 12-4pm

One of Old Town Swindon’s most popular seasonal events – The Old Town Autumn Fayre – is returning with more new activities for 2015.  This traditional style fayre in the church grounds and new Community Centre will be held on Saturday 12th September 12noon – 4pm.   With delicious food outlets, and live music from the superb Bill Bailey Jazz Band, vintage swing boats and traditional games from Hoopla to Beat the Goalie, there is something to entertain the whole family in this free to enter event. Amongst this year’s new activities will be stunning Birds of Prey flying demonstrations with Falcons, Raptors, Owls and Eagles and a chance to handle these beautiful birds.  And for the first 100 children there is a free teddy bear to claim! Enjoy the real ale and cider tent, or indulge in a gorgeous cake in the decorative Tea Garden. If you fancy hot and savoury there will be a selection of delicious stalls including locally sourced burgers and sausages and African street food dishes. If a spell in the stocks isn’t your thing, there’ll be craft and heritage stalls, plants to brighten up your garden and local produce to purchase.   If you are feeling fit you can try your hand at bell ringing a mere 46 steps up into the church tower!
