2021: Saturdays, stalls and singing
Ongoing uncertainty over Covid-19 has sadly led to the cancellation of the 2021 Mill Road Winter Fair.However, this year’s Fair will be replaced by Mill Road Saturdays – a series of small events to be held on Donkey Common and Petersfield on 9th October, 6th November and 4th December, from 10.30am to 3.30pm.
The 2020 Fair: Virtually brilliantIn 2020, the Mill Road Winter Fair could not take place due to Covid-19. Instead, we held our first Online Fair featuring many of the local performers, artists, stalls and organisations who would have been there on the day. The Online Fair gave a glimpse of the very special atmosphere of the Mill Road Winter Fair. From awesome local art to fantastic seasonal gifts to purchase, from sensational musical performances to historical talks, plus exciting experiments and craft activities for children.
Get involvedThe Winter Fair is run entirely by volunteers and we need your donations to help stage it every year. If you would like to get involved or donate, we would very much appreciate it. We need you to help us keep this wonderful Fair going. Donations to Love Mill Road help to fund the Fair, as well as the activities and projects of other Mill Road charities and community organisations, and are eligible for Gift Aid.
Details of the buskers and stalls who will be at the second Mill Road Saturday on Saturday 6th November are now available.
Thank you to everybody who came to the first Mill Road Saturday on 9th October! We had a blast and hope you did too!
Help us make 200 bunting flags inspired by our theme: “Your Life in and Around Mill Road”.

Penny Sobr, the artist who created our wonderful lanterns in 2020, showed a couple of the lanterns at local schools recently. She said: “There were cries of oohs and aahs… the children really loved them! It was so lovely to see their reaction and wonderful that they inspire young people.”
This year’s Mill Road Winter Fair AGM was held via Zoom on Tuesday 23 March at 7.30pm.
The Mill Road Winter Fair Committee were extremely saddened to hear of the death of Allan Brigham. Please take a moment to read our tribute to this remarkable Mill Road ambassador.
