Greenwich Fair (23 – 24 June)

Greenwich Fair Greenwich Fair / 23 – 24 June 2012
Part of the Greenwich & Docklands International Festival, the weekend fair has so many fun things happening. We love the theater in a piggy, Carrousel des Moutons and the giant Insectes. Events continue until end of June. For an impromptu picnic, we like Rhodes Bakery near the Cutty Sark.
Hugely successful at last year’s Festival, the Greenwich Fair is back, with a two day outpouring of street arts taking over Greenwich Town Centre. The original nineteenth century Greenwich Fair was an uproarious feast of sideshows, dancing booths, travelling menageries and gruesome melodramas. Much loved by Dickens, it was eventually banned because it was too unruly, but last year GDIF boldly revived it as a showcase for the best of British and international outdoor arts.
So roll up and view a show in a giant pig, glimpse a flying grand piano, get lost in a Catalan labyrinth or have your tea leaves read!
