Bideford Positive Living Fair 2017

Sunday 3 September, 10 am – 5 pm at Bideford Pannier Market.

We, the team, and all the participants were delighted by the success of the Positive Living Fair last year and this year promises to be even better! The idea for the Fair was the inspiration of Rose Young whose intention was to create an event to celebrate the generosity, community spirit, goodwill and creativity of the people of Bideford.

With this in mind the event will be imbued with opportunities for show-casing, networking, co-creation, learning, and of course FUN!

This is a non-profit event. It is about giving, sharing and highlighting the best of Bideford.

To create a lively mix there will be stalls providing hot and cold food, activities, well-being and a show-casing of sustainable initiatives. As well as a vibrant medley of performances in the afternoon!

After the success of last year's Bideford Bun competition, this year we asking anyone who loves to bake to create the Torridge Tart, to be judged at the Positive Living Fair. Entry forms can be collected from Walter Henry's in the High Street.

To enable stall-holders to meet and experience the day’s events, there will be volunteers who can look after their stall for short periods. Please let us know a.s.a.p. if you would like to take part or volunteer to help on the day – email:
