Keswick – Keswick Victorian Fayre
This years fayre will also feature Santa arriving with real reindeer, the reindeer remaining in the market square between 12.30 – 3pm.With lots of decorated charity stalls and a host of street entertainment the Fayre,with the Christmas tree and shops festooned with colourful lights, and equally colourful local characters providing entertainment, is an occasion not to be missed.Keswick Victorian Fayre, as it was previously know, first began in 1988 and since that time has taken place on the first Sunday in December. Organised by representatives from Keswick Lions Club, Keswick and Bassenthwaite Rotary Clubs, Keswick Inner Wheel and other local volunteers, the Fayre provides stalls for local organisations and charities to raise funds for their own specific good causes. None of the stalls are commercial and the event itself is run on a non-profit making basis. Stalls are only available for charities and for good causes such as local Schools, Scouts, Guides etc. Entertainment is provided throughout the day and there is also a small funfair for young children and a Santas Grotto.
