Summer Fair
Sunday 19th June

After the huge success of their Christmas Fair, Clarendon Park are hosting their very own summer fair. Queens Road will be closed off and there will be over 50 stalls selling arts and crafts.  You can enjoy local entertainment ranging from live music and spoken word to fair ground rides for the kids. Local shops and businesses will be trading as usual, so you could even pop into Dos Hermanos for a refreshing Pimms or treat your Dad to a Father’s Day beer!

You can befriend The Clarendon Park Summer Fair on Facebook and find out more information.
