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! See here for a list of stallholders on the day.
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. Our new principal caterer for 2019 is local business extraordinaire, Mrs.SW13.
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, kindly sponsored by Attic Conversions.
Full listings of everything that is planned and all 2019 exhibitors will be printed in this year’s Barnes Fair Programme which will be delivered to all households in Barnes at the beginning of July.
The Fair is held on Barnes Green, London SW13. Exhibitors can arrive from 7am
Please note that the traffic is heavy in Barnes and the surrounding areas on Fair Day and this year it will be worse than usual because of the closure of Hammersmith Bridge.
CONTRACTORS/EXHIBITORS - Instead of Hammersmith Bridge, you will need to drive over Chiswick Bridge or Putney Bridge to reach Barnes. There is limited parking in the side streets around the Green and each exhibitor will be sent a car park pass for our carpark on Rocks Lane, SW13 0BY. Please contact us if you require additional passes.
VISITORS – The easiest way to approach Barnes Fair is by train to Barnes Station or Barnes Bridge – both are about a 10 minute walk.
No buses go over Hammersmith Bridge so if you take the tube to Hammersmith, you will either need to take a 533 from Hammersmith to Barnes via Chiswick or to walk over the Bridge and then take a bus to Barnes Green. The following buses go to Barnes Green: 419/533/495 - but be careful which side of the road you’re standing on as these routes are circular!
