As always we hope the sun will shine on Fair Day but just in case the weather is a little damp or we have a heatwave (LOL!) there will be an undercover seating area available for people to enjoy their food in comfort (yay!).

A big thank you to MKM Building Supplies (who are celebrating their 20 year anniversary this year), King Edward VI High School and Heighley Gate for supporting the Newgate Street Food Court!

The food stalls are currently being organised with spaces filling up fast- if you are interested in having a food stall at Morpeth Fair Day, please visit our stallholder page to fill in an application form.

Another area we are looking at developing this year is the Morpeth Fair Day entertainment – we have had requests from you for a return of the rock bands. We can’t give too much away at this point but we are working hard to make this a reality this year…….so watch this space for further updates. If you have any band requests or you would like to perform at Morpeth Fair Day please get in touch.

Stallholders and attraction applications are flooding in already, to secure your space this year please send in your application as soon as possible.  Stalls and attractions are a huge part of Morpeth Fair Day and we love seeing so many varied and wonderful displays!

And so it begins……

By / 19th September, 2015 / News / No Comments

A big thank you to everyone who took part in fair day 2015, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

But there is no rest for the Morpeth Fair Day Team, we are working on fair day 2016 already!

Date for your diary: – Sunday 12th June 2016!

Thanks to the feedback from visitors and stallholders this year, there are a few changes being implemented and organised.

We are trialling a new pricing structure this year for stallholders, visit our stallholders page for more details.

We are also investigating how we can increase the number and location of performances through out the day – if you are interested in entertaining the 30,000+ visitors during fair day get in touch! Maybe you are part of a dance or theatre group and would like to show us what you have learned, perhaps you run a different kind of exercise class and would like to promote it or are you an up and coming musician and what to increase your fan base? If you would like to take part we would love to hear from you!

Another big development for this year are our plans for Newgate Street – we can’t give too much away at this stage but just a small hint can’t hurt………you are going to love it if you are foodie!

We are also investigating the possibility of a section of stalls that could be under cover – we need to determine the level of interest in this idea from stallholders, so if an under cover stall would have you signing up for a stall ASAP please get in touch!

Morpeth Fair Day attracts a vast array of stallholders and attractions, do you have something we haven’t seen before? We would love to receive applications for new and innovative stalls and attractions!  Perhaps you are part of a local sporting group and have an idea of how to raise your profile via your sport, maybe you are a charity and have someone who wants to sit in a bath tub of beans or maybe you breed weird and wonderful animals that visitors would love to learn about…..the possibilities are endless!

Well that’s it for now folks, stay tuned to our social media sites for updates!

Many thanks
