Register to take part
in the 2024 WBR Spring Fayre
The date has now been confirmed for the next Fayre – Sunday 12th May 2024! If you are a vendor, performer or service provider you can register now to secure your place at the Fayre.
Last year’s Spring Fayre attracted over 14,000 visitors from outside the area! This year again will see a full, temporary street closure with Market Stalls, Street Food, Arts & Crafts, Games, Live Music and more right on the Wandsworth Bridge Road!
Wandsworth Bridge Road was selected by the GLA as one of London’s ‘High Streets for All’ regeneration initiatives, and the Spring Fayres are an integral part of that. Building the community is a key foundation of both the GLA & LBHF’s plans and our own ambition for the future of WBR. We aim to make the Spring Fayres true community events.
What does the Spring Fayre include?
The Fayre will span from at least Ryecroft Street down to Friston Street (subject to change), with 2 Live Music Stages set up at the junctions of Hazlebury Road and Narborough Street, as well as Children’s Activities Area, Maypole, Funfair stalls, Children’s rides and more throughout the full length of the Fayre.

There are also a number of requirements from the Council if you’re serving food any any capacity. Please see full details here.
Temporary Events Notice Licence
If you are selling alcohol you will need to apply for a Temporary Events Notice Licence (TEN) via LBHF Council (note this must be done at least 10 working days before the event – i.e. Monday 8th May. We will need to specify where your stall is to be located): http://www.lbhf.gov.uk/Directory/Business/Licences_and_street_trading/Licensing_a_z/178372_Temporary_Event_Notice.asp
If you require power you are advised to use battery power where possible. For Wandsworth Bridge Road businesses we ask you to use power from your own business premises. We may provide generators but this is still TBC and would require fees. If we do not use generators, and you are a visiting stall holder that requires electricity, we will endeavour to put you in touch with an existing business on the street to connect to their supply for which they may charge.
All stall holders are responsible for the management of their own rubbish and recycling on the day and must place it in the designated areas after the event, leaving nothing behind on the road.
If you require a Market Stall we can provide these from our supplier. These will be pre-built, erected in the morning and ready for use on your arrival.
Please note; last year we sold out of stalls early. So, to guarantee availability please book in as soon as possible and at least before 1st March.
