Blackberry Fair once again hopes to make a day to remember in Whitchurch but this year we've got a huge amount to find! A few grants that have helped us raise the bar in previous years are not available this year and so we need your help! We've got the line-up penciled in but we need the ££££££ to confirm them! We have had over 3 million hits from the Mr Wilson's Second Liners video shot on Green End and we have brought Artists to Whitchurch usually confined to bigger towns and cities. We believe Blackberry Fair is putting Whitchurch on the map and it's down to you for supporting us! Let's make 2019 incredible!
The line up this year we hope will include a return of the amazing Festive Road in more ways than one!
We have teamed up with them to create something for Whitchurch that really is for 'more than just a day', a brand new, wacky and interactive Town Clock! We hope to bring a prototype to the Fair this year and hope you will all get onboard with this ambitious project! We also hope to bring the fantastic Wonderbrass, Acrojou, Murmuration, Sol Cinema, the Human Jukebox, and much much more!! Spread the word and let's keep the party going!
Blackberry Fair has kept its roots in the heart of the community and is still run by a small team, who have dedicated their time to raise the profile of Whitchurch and improve inter-community relationships. Blackberry Fair's main ethos is one of promoting positive action, as we believe that this helps communities to grow. Blackberry Fair prides itself on promoting local solutions for sustainability and educating on waste reduction, while also bringing internationally recognised artists to a small town, and intermingling them with local musicians, artists and dancers. Enter the Wild Zone this year for Pointless Plastic Solutions!!!
Last year the Fair cost £25,000, donated by many local business and organisations, thank you!!
