Ashington Fayre took place on Sunday (25 June) and with the perfect weather many enjoyed the wide range of activities that took place.  

The Fayre is brought together by a dedicated working group of local community organisations working alongside Ashington Town Council including the Ashington Town Team, Bad Apples North East, Northumberland YMCA and Ashington Cricket Club. The Town Council thank everyone for making the day a success.

The Fayre included fairground rides, live music, dancing, market stalls and a wide range of family entertainment. Leading local bands We Steal Flyers, Logoz, KSVT, The Hookahs and HED all gave excellent performances.

There was a range of street entertainment including acrobatic stilt walkers (pictured), kids face painting and costumed characters. The Fayre included several market stalls including a number from local community groups active in the town. The Fayre again took place at the Wansbeck Square car park and adjoining grassed area.

In a great weekend for Ashington the town also hosted a Best of British Market, a photography exhibition by the Camera Club as well as Ashington Cricket Club’s Annual Real Ale & Cider Festival.
