2020 was our first year in 8 years that we didn’t hold any in person events. Although this was a very sad decision the safety of our stall holders and visitors has to be a priority and with a proportion of these and our helpers falling into the vulnerable category we feel we couldn’t hold the fairs without them. Additionally with local sponsors not in a position to support us during this time and us not being able to have face painting, singers and many of our magical extras we decided not to hold any markets.
However, we didn’t let that stop us – we held 8 online fairs with thousands of visitors at each, had 10,000 Christmas brochures delivered and shared online and expanded our online Creatives Directory to bigger than ever before.
In 2021 we once again held online fairs at Spring, Summer, Halloween and Christmas and excitingly returned for our first in person fair in 2 years at Worthing Charmandean in aid of St Barnabas house – which raised over £3,000 for them.
In 2022 we celebrated 1o years of The Fairy Tale Fair and we were pleased to be able to return to full capacity fairs at Easter and Christmas in Worthing and are so proud that these fairs have now raised over £30,000 for St Barnabas since 2015.
We appreciate your support more than ever. See some throwback photos from 2019 on the left.
