The Raising of the Glove is an annual ceremony held on the Minster Green to mark the granting of the town's charter to hold eight days of fairs every year. The event was the inspiration for The Cherry Fayre and this year opens the eight-day festival. Come down to Trinity Square, the Market and the Church Green on Thursday 20th June for the official ceremony at 11.30am, along with Punch and Judy shows at 1.15pm and 4pm.
Food produce and street food market, food demonstrations and workshops, live music and a children's fun fair, the evening of Friday 28th June (4pm - 9pm) is set to be a wonderful time for grub and fun. Lock the kitchen door behind you and head down to town instead of cooking at home.
We are pleased to be running another Cherry Fayre special Pizza and Quiz night at Le Pisani on Sunday 23rd June. Tickets cost £10pp (including pizza), and teams should be of either 2 (one pizza to share), 4 (two pizzas to share) or 6 (three pizzas to share). Tickets will go on sale in September (watch this space for details) from Archway Bookshop. Please get your tickets ahead of the night, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to take part if you turn up on the night without having a ticket!
