Stamford will come alive with a mix of music, entertainment, food and drink at the town council’s rebranded summer event.

The former Stamford Feast and Party on the Point has this year become Stamford Fayre, and will take place on the Meadows on Sunday, June 1.

Stamford town councillors have been busy organising a packed programme of activities to give the whole family a free event to enjoy.

Coun Maxine Couch (Independent) is deputy chairman of the council’s events committee. She said the event had been renamed to give it an all-encompassing feel.

“This event will now incorporate craft stalls as well as a variety of food stalls,” she added.

“We would like to welcome back the Punch and Judy show, which will have three performances throughout the day.

“Tatty Bumpkins will be there to entertain children with stories, yoga and activities during the day.

“Our regular face painting stall will also be attending.

“As well as the children’s entertainment we will have a funfair, ponies, Rutland Radio, and a stage with live music during the day with bands including Mullered at the Mill, Tripple 7 and our very popular Pennyless.

“We will provide a picnic area and bar so you can relax and enjoy the music

“So please come along and enjoy a free day out with fun for all the family”

Stamford Summer Fayre runs on the Meadows from 10.30am to 6pm. All the entertainment on the day is free of charge.
