Mill Road Winter Fair 2013
Fete / Fair
There are events, activities and special offers in many of the shops, restaurants and other businesses all along Mill Road, and in some of the side streets, at different times all day long.
The Mayor formally opens the Mill Road Winter Fair at 10.30am at Ditchburn Gardens.
The Parade assembles on Petersfield (sometimes known as Peter's Field) around 12 noon in order to be ready to move off along Mill Road shortly afterwards.
The very popular Food Fair is in Gwydir Street car park. There will be stalls offering a fantastic range of food and drink - ready to eat, to take home or to give as gifts. The 'Food Fair' category of the Events listings has information about each individual stall.
Market and Craft Stalls
Stalls will be dotted along various places on Mill Road: in the marquee and outside on Donkey Common, in Ditchburn Gardens, and in Hope Street Yard. This year, we also have areas at Great Eastern Street, the Co-op Car Park and Bharat Bhavan. Look in the Events listings to see what's happening at each location. The marquee on Donkey Common is open to the public at 10.00am. Click to see a map of where these venues are on Mill Road.
Mill Road Art
Mill Road Art is in the Anglia Ruskin Drama Studio at the bottom of Covent Garden, also on the map. Visitors will be able to view and purchase the work of local artists. Refreshments will be available at the nearby Six Bells along with an exhibition of Sam Motherwell's work. Look in the 'Mill Road Art' category of the Events listing to see each exhibitor at the Drama Studio and find out about other art events held at the Fair.
Mill Road Music
There are busking spots with musicians and choirs along the length of Mill Road as well as in Ditchburn Gardens, at the Food Fair in Gwydir Street car park, at Argyle Street Housing Co-operative and in a marquee in Hope Street Yard.
Later in the day there will be a programme of live music at the Salisbury Club. Come along to the party after the fair finishes and enjoy some fabulous music, food, licensed bar, free entry and a raffle with great prizes!
