Our annual May Day Fair will take place on Monday 1st May 2017 on Southgate Green from 11am – 4pm.
The May Day Fair is organised by Christ Church Southgate with the support of the Southgate & Highlands ATC & the Hatters Explorer Scouts, who will also benefit from the funds raised. We would be delighted to have your support to help make the event a success. This year, to mark our involvement with the “Eco Church” programme we will be hoping to make the fair as sustainable as we can, with a ‘Green’ theme to our events and competitions. This year, our main beneficiary will be Haven House Children’s Hospice (Charity Number 1044296).
We welcome applications from local community groups and businesses. We have indoor and outdoor pitches available. Download a booking form on our website.
