Bellevue Road Summer Fair 2015

I've been keeping myself sane this 'summer' by placing my bets on a sunny September. It seems the folk of Bellevue Road are of the same mindset.

The Bellevue Road Summer Fair will return for the fourth year in a row, on Sunday 20th September from 11am to 5pm. This popular event is kindly organised by the Bellevue Road Association and brings together the businesses and locals for a community event filled with entertainment, market stalls, plenty of food and drink, a bouncy castle and the much-loved Dog Show!

Bellevue Road is well known across London for serving the best quality food, and the delicious treats at the Fair promise to live up to this reputation. A hog roast, Italian cheese & charcuterie, cakes & bakes plus freshly made crepes, may all be finished off with a glass of prosecco (or two!) - there won’t be a hungry tummy in sight! The street food sellers will be flanked by stalls filled with a beautiful selection of homewares, children’s clothes, fashion, jewellery and more!

The bouncy castle will be positioned on the Common, where children can bounce to their hearts content. Children may have their faces transformed into works of art by the team of face painters and the entertainment stage, will host talented performers who will sing, dance and act their way through the day! At Bennett Court, a large ‘pond’ will be installed for the extreme Hook-A-Duck game, right outside Home Hair, where the Dunkin’ Ducklin’s competition will challenge both children and adults too!

The popular Dog Show will return to the Bellevue Road summer Fair and take place opposite the street on Wandsworth Common. Between 11-4pm pooches skills will be tested in the dog agility course run by the good people at The Dogfather, a local dog walking service. Woofs should register on the day to take part in the competition, in any (or all!) of the six categories: Waggiest Tail, Best decorated lead, Best 'bad hair day', Looks Most like owner, Best party trick or Fastest 'sit down'. Judging will take place at 4pm on the entertainment stage, where crowds can watch the pooches parade. Rosettes will be presented to first, second and third place winners and top dogs will receive vouchers of £35 from D-O-G, the local grooming salon. Proceeds from the Dog Show will be donated to the Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare Charity.

Please join us in thanking the principal sponsor for the fair: Knight Frank. Sam Sproston and the good people at Knight Frank will be handing out samples of Turners cider on the day of the Fair. Made with fresh apples from the fields of Kent and created by Sam’s brother in law, Turners cider is loved both locally and internationally. It’s even made it to Russia! Make sure you enjoy your sample outside the Knight Frank office at 26, Bellevue Road, as stock will be limited.
