N21 Festival Fancy Fair - 23rd June 2012
Quote of the day : "Have you seen the porcupine on Winchmore Hill Green ?"
Before the event
“There were large white tents and flags, a band playing matial airs, crowds of people, carriages and horses.
Everyone in the village had worked their hardest, and all the stalls were full of a wonderful collection of goods of all sorts.
The years numbered three times seven before there was another Bazaar in Winchmore Hill, so it is little wonder that folks spoke of “The year of the Fancy Fair’.

This is the grand finale to the N21 Festival.
The original Fancy Fair was held in Grovelands Park and was used to raise money to build the improved St Paul’s school next to the church. This replaced the small clapper board school house, still seen on Church Hill.
The Fancy Fair of 2012 will see Winchmore Hill Green pedestrianized, and a great celebration will take place to bring people together, as we try to re-create a Fair that will be long remembered in the memories of Winchmore Hill residents after 2012.
The day will start at 10 O'clock with a Grand opening, with the Mayor of Enfield, David Burrowes MP and our very own 98 and 100-year-old residents.
The scene above will look totally different as Winchmore Hill village returns to N21.
