Last Sunday we held our very first Spring Fayre, and what an absolutely incredible day it was!
We took over both floors of Nailsworth Town Hall, downstairs large weather themed mobiles hung from the ceiling, the room awash with twinkling lights as it set the stage for a Playcircle production of The Weather Man, a beautiful children's story written by our very own Melanie Golding. It had all the classic ingredients to capture the imagination of it’s audience….silvery ice canopy, bubbles, feathers and even a flying bird! The story was accompanied by a fabulous array of talented singers and musicians, all from the Playcircle family. Instruments included piano, drums, cello, fiddle and ukulele. We were even lucky enough to have Claire Owen of TinyTalk signing the session….a musical feast that had both children and adults joining in!
Upstairs the spotlight was on the talents of Playcircle attendees. We had over 30 stalls all brimming with treasures! The large, bunting decked hall was positively humming with creativity! The variety of wares/services was simply amazing, from high quality children's clothes to bespoke jewelry, from incredible vegan cakes to acupressure & massage, Indian fabrics, stunning tailored children's fancy dress costumes, pop up children's photography studio, wood fired sourdough pizzas, mini silly science sessions, artwork, children's toys and much much more!!
It was such a wonderful privilege to be the platform on which to showcase such glorious talent. We are both proud and in awe of everyone and we'd like offer a huge heartfelt thank you to all those involved. Whether it was your musical contribution, or whether you had a stall, manned the tea and coffee stand, had sleeves rolled up in the kitchen or whether you came along and spent your hard earned money!! It was a spectacular joint effort. Thank you so much.
We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. We loved it so much there's now even the possibility of doing an Advent Fayre this winter!! Watch this space
