Transition Highgate @ Fair in the Square

Join us on Saturday June 16th from 12.30-5.30pm at Highgate’s Fair in the Square.

The Fair in the Square is held every year in Pond Square, Highgate. This year over 5000 people are expected to attend and its entertainments, stalls and events to set the Square buzzing.

Two stages will showcase the talents of local ballet schools, choirs and musicians. On the programme so far are performances by The Hornsey School for Girls Steel Band, The Highgate Choral Society and the cast from Upstairs at The Gatehouse.

There will be lots for younger visitors to enjoy, both as participants and spectators, with creative activities in the Cass Kids tent, Punch and Judy shows, Morris Dancers, roundabout ride, fire engines and much more. Teenagers will be clamouring for the bungee jump and climbing wall, while the Dog Show will sets tails wagging.

Charities, local societies and shops are amongst the 130 stalls selling a range of jewellery, plants, books, crafts, alternative therapies and vintage clothes. New for this year will be a country fair tent organised in conjunction with the Highgate Horticultural Society with displays of cakes, produce and craft made by talented local people, young and old.

The Fair is organised in association with The Highgate Society, The Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution, St Michael’s Church, United Reformed Church, The Whittington Hospital and Upstairs at the Gatehouse.

And finally, the Fair is very grateful for the continuing support of our principal sponsors The Ham & High newspaper, Benham & Reeves, Cass Art and PetVet, and we also welcome this year’s new key sponsors The Highgate Society, Goldschmidt and Howland and Day Morris estate agents.
