A community and volunteer run event for all the family, Reach Fair returns on Bank Holiday Monday (May 7).

The fair will be opened at 12 noon by the Mayor of Cambridge and closes at 5pm.

Top Field will have a picnic area, over 40 local artists, craftspeople as well as food and drink producers.

There will also be dance and gymnastics displays, live music, games and activities.

The more traditional Lower Green, meanwhile, will host the village tea tent, salad tent and a bar. There will also be games including the coconut shy, maypole dancing, a magic show, live music and a dog show. The fairground is on the Fair Green.

The historical fair has been held every year since 1201 by Royal Charter.

The sponsors this year are The Anchor in Burwell, Anne’s Arrangements, The Crown in Fordham, Harrisons of Burwell, Nesslands of Burwell, Red House Day Nursery in Burwell and Within Reach Magazine.
