May Fair organisers hopeful of September return


In the hope that outdoor events will become part of the calendar later in the year, plans are underway by the May Fair team to organise a delayed version of the Alderley Edge May Fair in September 2021.

Whilst adhering to the latest government guidance, it is hoped that the fair will include many of the usual attractions such as the parade, fairground, market stalls, live music, entertainment and catering, and will take place on the weekend of September 10th -11th.

By delaying the event until later this year, the team feel confident of bringing the community a safe, secure and enjoyable weekend for the whole family.

Paul Marshall - Organising Committee says "As I'm sure you can expect we are continuing to monitor the Covid-19 situation, and its implications to outdoor community events such as ours. Hopefully by September we will have the right conditions for an event to take place. We are conscious that we may not want to encourage more visitors into the village. Instead, the May Fair will be a party for the local neighbourhood and business community; a chance for residents to mix outdoors safely and enjoy the entertainment ''

Any members of the community who would like to be involved in the organising committee or event team are requested to get in touch.

Local businesses are also encouraged to get involved.

I am glad to hear you are planning to hold the Fair later in the year but making it a smaller event, for the local community. It had become so big that it was no longer a village occasion and I welcome a return to something smaller.
