Monifieth’s Medieval Fair has become a regular fixture in the town’s calendar with hundreds of folk from the town (and further afield) attending the lively mix of battle re-enactments, local performers, stalls, charities, sports, youth groups and food, drink and craft stalls.
Entry to the event has always been free, and the organising committee is determined to keep it that way.
However, the fair costs upwards of £3000 to stage, with a substantial amount of equipment needing to be hired, such as marquees, generators and sound equipment, as well as the cost of first aiders, policing, transport, security, publicity and insurance.
This money has to be fundraised. In the past, Angus Council partly helped with a grant, but due to cutbacks, this cash is no longer forthcoming.
We need your help with this year’s event, which will be staged on Sunday August 12. Please pledge what you can to pay for what promises to be another great day for the citizens of Monifieth.
