Cuckfield's Cuckoo Fayre: 6th May 2019

Cuckfield’s Cuckoo Fayre

You know spring is in full flow when the Independent State of Cuckfield’s (ISOC) Cuckoo Fayre comes around. This fantastic, fun-filled family event has a little something for everyone, young and old. From a whole variety of stalls selling crafts, treats or just some fun games, to live music, a dog show, licenced bar and hot food. You certainly won’t be bored.

This year there will be some great new childrens’ entertainment from the fabulous Poppy’s Parties, one of the leading entertainers in the South East.

The Fayre takes place from midday on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May at the Cuckfield Recreation Ground (behind the Queen’s Hall). The reigning Mayor, Leanne Knapman, will arrive at 1pm to officially open the event.

If anyone is interested in booking a stall at this year’s Fayre, or would like to help out with the Fayre, please email: info at cuckfieldstate.org or call Mike on 07736 910344 for more details. Organisers are also looking for any groups who may wish to put on a display in the main arena.

The first Bank Holiday Monday of May is always Cuckoo Fayre in Cuckfield – but it’s not always the beautiful scorcher that was enjoyed earlier this month!

Mayor Evelyn Stenning glided down to the event on the recreation ground in a stunning classic car – the mayor always arrives in style! After a tour round the green, Evelyn wasted no time in declaring the Fayre open.

With around 40 stalls at this year’s event there was plenty for residents and visitors to do. For kids there was hook-a-duck, the steam railway, a bouncy castle and radio-controlled cars to name but a few! For everyone else, a fine array of stallholders with goods to browse and buy, raffles, information stands and the well-stocked bar run by 2018 mayor hopeful Leanne Knapman.
