3 Days To Go And Summer Sunshine

 Saturday 26th May 12-4
Spinney Hill Northampton

With three days to go sun has returned to the streets of Northampton. I took this photo just before 6am this morning and there wasn't a cloud in the sky.

The Fair Is Taking Place At The Spinney Hill

The Spinney Hill is easy to find, it is situated on the Kettering Road about one and a half miles from Northampton town centre. The fair starts at 12pm and there will 40 stalls selling vintage and handmade waiting for you in the garden.

The Mirror Souvenir Edition From 1953

One of my neighbours gave me this souvenir edition of the Daily Mirror after seeing me putting up a poster for the fair on my side gate.

Celebrate The Jubilee At The
Vintage Fair & Jubilee Garden Party

There will be homemade cakes, including fairy cakes for children and tea will be served on the lawn. Usually the Northampton Vintage Fair takes place at St Matthews (we will be back at St Matthews in July for the 'Vintage Jumble'), however we have moved outside for the first time. The Spinney Hill is about half a mile up the Kettering Road from St Matthews. As usual we will be serving tea and homemade cake as well as Pimm's.

Pimm's On The Lawn

Many of our regular stall holders will selling at the fair on Saturday and we will also be joined by quite a few new people who will be with us for the first time. The garden is quite large and so it has been possible to fit more people in. Im sure there will be quite a 'jubilee' theme to the day, lots of red,white and blue everywhere.

The Spinney Hill is a 'family friendly' pub and the garden has a sandpit for children to play in and there will be red and blue jellies. There are plenty of spaces in the venue car-park for those travelling by car and several buses stop outside.

We cant wait to see you at the fair.
