What's On

Join us on Abbeyfields, Chertsey. Edwards Funfair Thursday 8th July, local bands on Friday 9th, and the Black Cherry Fair on Sat 10th July.

Changes due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are constantly re-evaluating the coronavirus risks in line with government guidelines. Currently the procession is on hold for 2021 but we are planning to have arena events and music performances. A further evaluation will take place at the end of May and a full description measures for your safety at the fair will be advertised on this website, in our programme and on social media nearer the time.



There’s lots of fantastic competitions in our free event guide and live on the day, with prizes ranging from £10 to £200! As well as the many competitions run by the Black Cherry Fair you'll also find countless stalls with raffles, games and tombolas for the whole family to enjoy.

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.

Advertising & sponsorship


With as many as 10,000 visitors every year the Black Cherry Fair is a simple and effective way to promote your business and support the local community. Advertise in our free event guide, or sponsor an event and get in touch with Chertsey.

The Town Procession

Sadly, the current plan is to cancel the Procession for 2021 to prevent any build up of crowds and to try and spread the number of visitors to the fair more evenly during the day. However we are constantly looking at the situation and a further review will take place at the end of May
