Take Part

There are many ways to take part in the Black Cherry Fair and it’s all really simple. You can book a stall to promote your business, help a charity, or just to empty some bric-a-brac from the loft! With two arenas we have plenty of space for performers of all types. You might like to help out behind the scenes and become involved with the event organisation or promote your school or organisation by taking part in the Town Procession.

The Town Procession

Our theme for the 2024 Town Procession is 'Children's Stories'. 

We are aware that this was previously advertised as nursery rhymes but we decided to widen the choices a little by adding stories which can be book or film. If you have already arranged a nursery rhyme this is absolutely fine.  We now also like to invite walking groups and performers to join us to make it a real carnival style celebration! And there are lots of prizes! For more info visit the page.
