The Suffolks Annual Street Fair
2009 is the ninth year The Suffolks Traders' Association has organised and sponsored this unique local event and a great opportunity for businesses and the local community to celebrate being in The Suffolks area of Cheltenham.
Date: Bank Holiday Monday 25 May 2009
Time: 10.00 – 17.00
Place: Suffolk Parade, The Suffolks, Cheltenham, GL50
(Suffolk Parade runs between Suffolk Road to the South and Montpellier Terrace to the North).
The Mayor of Cheltenham will officially open the event.
Over 45 stalls will be selling jewellery, accessories, cakes, local produce, furniture, plants and flowers, clothes and arts and crafts. Refreshments are available throughout the day with an eclectic mix of food stalls to suit all tastes.
There is plenty of things to keep the children entertained -- Mr Jinks' Punch and Judy show, face painting, a bouncy castle and a carousel.
Live music is provided by a walking jazz band, an acapella group plus local rock and folk bands. The Street Fair Grand Raffle offers everyone the opportunity to win some fabulous prizes and the proceeds are donated to the Mayor's Charities - Alzheimer's Society, Cheltenham Sea Cadets, Maggie's Cotswold Centre, and Samaritans. Raffle tickets are £1.00 each and may be purchased from most shops and restaurants in The Suffolks area throughout the month of May and at the Street Fair on the day.
Michele Beint of Capability and Chairman of The Suffolks Traders' says, “The Suffolks' Traders Street Fair has become a much enjoyed annual fixture and we're looking forward to a bumper day this year with many new stalls and a huge variety of entertainment."
