St Bart's Day Fair @ St George's Cathedral (24 August)

Posted: Tuesday 19th August 2014 11:00 am

St Bartholomew is one of those Apostles whose feast-day once merited a public holiday.

The placing of the modern school Term 3 from mid-July to late September results in its ‘mid-term break’ or ‘half-term’ falling by coincidence in ‘Bartlemastide’: 22-25 August.

In that half-term this year St Bartholomew’s House, our award-winning Anglican caring organisation, restores the traditional St Bartholomew's Day Fair held on this day.

Starting with a special choral Service at St George’s Cathedral at 5pm on Sunday 24 August, the event includes an old-fashioned carousel, hog roast, circus performers, brass band, magicians, and other traditional 19th century fair attractions. The fair is an ideal treat for children and adults alike this half-term, and St Bartholomew’s House a great cause to support.
