REDLAND May Fair celebrated its 40th anniversary last month with a mix of over 100 stalls, live music and children’s entertainment.
A sudden downpour of rain at the start of proceedings sent visitors hurrying for shelter but it didn’t dampen the spirit of the event. Stall holders, concerned that the event would have to be cancelled, as happened in 2012, were relieved when the skies dried up. By mid afternoon the crowds were flocking in and the sun finally made a welcome appearance.
The event was opened by Helen Wilde, High Sheriff of the county and city of Bristol and Chair of the Redland and Cotham Amenities Society, the organisation behind the May Fair.
