Devizes Lions will again be holding its popular May Fair in Devizes Market Place and Corn Exchange on May 6th 2019.

The fair will be on similar lines as previous years, but enlhanced in a number of ways.
In addition to trades & charities, a new class of stall is being introduced - for artisans who produce goods for direct sale to the public. 

Full details of the Fair, including entertainments and other attractions, are being finalised and will be published here.

Booking forms for stalls will be available from early January. They will be sent automatically to those who have taken part in previous years, but if the address or person responsible has changed since then, please let us know.
Any other potential stallholder is invited to download a form from the link below or get details from:

Lion Chris Gillings, 5 Gaisford Chase, Worton, Devizes SN10 5RX, telephone 01380 725503.

The organising of the Lions May Fair on the 6th May is gathering pace and we would welcome some help between 10am and 3pm. 

There are plenty of tasks to be done so please let us know if you fancy helping out for an hour or so - or more if you like!

We need people to take money at the full size Carousel - as seen on Vanity Fair; help with the plant stall; serve Pimm's, help on the bric-a-brac stall, be part of the Human Fruit Machine - if you have seen it operating you know how people love it.

We also need Marshals - full briefing will be given and you can either look over the crossing to the Corn Exchange, be available to guide vehicles in the unlikely event of them moving or walk round to make sure everything is going smoothly. We will supply a fetching yellow bib!


If you would like to help, then please contact us
