Before the event
Zoe Ryder, the creative genius behind The Fancy Fair tells us a little bit about the St Nicholas Fair..
The St Nicholas Fair starts at 2.00pm promptly with popular carols sung by our local schools and churches.
Come and enjoy a glass of mulled wine, peruse the huge range of local crafts and gifts ready for Xmas and enjoy festive food and excitement once again on our village Green.
There will be popular music with a Christmas theme until 4.00pm, at which time St Nicholas himself will be leaving St Pauls Church car park on his horse, ready to come up to Winchmore Hill Green.
St Nicholas, in keeping with tradition will be handing out small gifts to the children on his route up Church Hill.
We would like to invite all parents with their children to please come and join him around 3.40pm in St Pauls car park, and follow him up the hill as he makes his grand entrance onto The Green.
