Carshalton Park prepares for Bank Holiday Fair
Billed as one of the borough’s biggest annual events, the Carshalton Environmental Fair returns to Carshalton Park on Bank Holiday Monday with a fun-packed line-up of music and drink.
Spread across three live stages the event will encompass a wide range of music genres, guaranteeing something to delight for all ages.
And with over 10,000 people flocking to the event last year it looks odds-on to be another day to remember.
Kicking off at 10.30am, the fair runs until 8pm and has been put together by local charity EcoLocal, who have ensured that a bevy of delicious food, local ales and organic lager will be on offer.
The main stage sits in the renowned ‘Hog Pit’ at the park and the natural amphitheatre will provide the perfect backdrop to a line-up stitched together by local volunteer Ben Rafferty.
Among those acts taking to the stage will be glam-rock specialists Slurred, folk favourites the Yearner Babies and even Theory of 6 Degrees, a fearsome crew of energetic 12-14 year-olds who have already racked up over 50 gigs.
Moving on to the Music Cafe stage and things take a very sedate turn, hosted by the Sutton Acoustic Music Club.
An outdoor marquee offering space to relax and chill out while soaking up the sounds of folk, bluegrass, Irish and even Chilean music, this is the perfect spot to get away from it all.
And that is not all, with the Performing Arts Marquee also on offer, neatly nestled among the bars and caterers.
This will be a hotbed of local singer-songwriters, ranging from Dale Harris on the Spanish guitar to Mark the Fiddler’s ‘Virtuoso Violinistry’, with some fun courtesy of the Big Wheel Theatre Company thrown in for good measure.
There will be free bus services to shuttle everyone around, so head on down for some Bank Holiday fun.
