Barnes Fair 2019 will take place on Saturday 13 July, 9.30am-5.30pm
There’s always plenty to see, do, buy, eat and drink at Barnes Fair and this year is no exception!
Together with the carousel and traditional fairground attractions, we have a full programme of live music and events taking place on the Bandstand and Events Stage. Many of Barnes’ favourite restaurants – including Rick Stein, The Brown Dog, The Treehouse and @Feast - have stands and will offer a delicious selection of food though the day. Barnes’ brewery Jeffersons have a beer tent and the BCA will be returning with their ever-popular Pimm’s stand.
NEW for 2019 is an animal-themed fancy dress parade which is open to all children under 11 and will be judged by BBC presenter Kate Silverton. Home-Start Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow, Barnes Fair’s nominated charity for 2019, will be helping us to organise this and we look forward to meeting the animals at 10am at the Bandstand.
And in addition to all this, there are almost 300 stalls to wander around selling everything from jewellery and gifts to handmade clothes for adults and children, plants, homewares and all kinds of unusual and original products.
Barnes Fair is a FREE, community fundraising event organised by Barnes Community Association.
Full listings of everything that is planned will be printed in this year’s Barnes Fair Programme which will be delivered to all households in Barnes at the beginning of July.
If you would like to advertise in the Barnes Fair 2019 programme, contact Charlotte Sharpe Neal - prices start at £99 for a quarter page.
Information for stall holders
Invitations will be sent out to all those who had a stall last and after we have evaluated take-up, we will then consider newcomers. Please do NOT complete an application form until invited to do so as your application will not be considered and your chances of submitting a successful application prejudiced. Please keep an eye on our website for next steps for newcomers.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL STALLS ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED FOR 2019 OWING TO AN UNPRECEDENTED NUMBER OF RETURNING STALLHOLDERS. STALLS ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR THE BCA BARNES FOOD FAIR - SEE HERE FOR MORE INFO
The cost for stalls remains the same this year:
Locals (SW13/SW14): £120
Our aim is to include as much variety as possible and few duplicates, so please bear this in mind when applying. We are always heavily over-subscribed with jewellery stalls so we would discourage you from applying for these. For newcomers wishing to be considered, we recommend you email Julia at firstname.lastname@example.org with a full description of what you would like to sell or do on Fair Day, with photos if possible. We recommend you read our Rules and Regulations (available here) before applying, as you will be asked to comply with them.
