Beggars Fair & COVID-19

We need to let you know that the Beggars Fair 2020 has been cancelled.

We’re sure you’ll share our disappointment at this but the health and wellbeing of our audience, performers and volunteers must be our first priority.

We believe that current Government advice and the latest information about the spread of Covid-19 make it impossible for this year’s Fair to go ahead safely.

Our thanks go to the many performers who had offered their time and talents, the businesses which agreed to take a space at the event, and those companies and organisations which sponsor the Beggars Fair or support us in other ways.

Rest assured that we plan to return in 2021 with a Beggars Fair that is bigger and better than ever.

We also hope to be part of whatever public events are organised to mark the resumption of normal, everyday life in Romsey when that time comes.

In the meantime, stay safe.
