Blewbury Brass Band will be playing at the East Ilsley Sheep Fair on Sunday 2 June.
The fair originally dates back to 1620, when East Ilsley held one of England’s largest sheep markets with some 400,000 sheep sold each year in this pretty Berkshire village. In 1975 a group of villagers resurrected the fair in the form of a small country show with a variety of events and attractions for all ages. All profits made from the fair are given back to local organisations.
Over 2,000 people attended the show last year so stallholders are gearing up to make this years event another great success.
It promises to be a big, free and fun weekend. There will be a craft tent, fun races for all ages, a children’s entertainer, classic cars and bikes, a food court and bar and so much more. A great day out for all the family!
