Want to Take Part In 2018?
The Deadline For Musical Submissions Is January 31st

Saturday 14 July 2018

Music, dance and street entertainment will return to Romsey on Saturday 14th July 2018, when the 26th Beggars Fair takes place. Expect to see and hear over 100 acts across 25 venues and all for free at Romsey’s Summer Music Festival.


Throughout the streets and in venues all around the town, the best of local musicians bring you an eclectic mix of folk, jazz, blues, soul, rock, bluegrass, classical and world music. Together with colourful dance displays and children’s entertainment there is plenty of entertainment on offer.

From big bands on the Cornmarket main stage to intimate acoustic music in tranquil gardens, cheerful pub sessions and spellbinding storytelling there is something for everyone.


The Beggars Fair is an annual event run entirely by a small team of enthusiastic volunteers. It has been running since 1993 and is living up to its aims of showcasing local talent in a friendly environment.

The day has a great atmosphere that keeps bringing people, and performers, back year after year.

One of the original goals of the first committee in 1993 was “to create a new tradition for Romsey, involving musicians, dancers, entertainers and above all audience”. This it certainly now is. A truly unique community event and the busiest Saturday in Romsey all year.
