Summer Fetes InDurham

Millennium Place, Durham

30.05.17 to 02.06.17

 

Take a trip down memory lane as we transport you back to the traditions of a by-gone year with Summer Fetes InDurham. Visit the stall holders in Millennium Place selling handmade goodies, turn your hand to crafts, and even pick up a vintage fashion find or two.

All in the name of a good cause, profits raised from each stall holder will go to charity or to help a new start-up grow their business.  There'll be activities taking place across the City such as traditional summer games, vintage rides, treasure hunts.

Don’t forget to dust of your Sunday suit and don your finery to take part in Oxfam’s Best in Show Competition. Coordinated by Oxfam Durham and Durham BID, the best dressed adult and child will win vouchers to spend in the City centre store.

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s take a trip down memory lane and celebrate the quintessentially English tradition of the school fair together. Join us for the premier of this new event to the City this Summer.
