Addlestone Festive Fayre

The Festive Fayre in Addlestone on 25 November marked not only the traditional turning on of the Christmas lights but also the first ever food market in the town centre. The market traders were unsure of what to expect, but they were met with a great reception and by the end of the day, were all sold out. The town centre was bustling and high street businesses also had a great trading day.

The Fayre was developed by the Addlestone Town Team, a partnership between Runneymede Borough Council, town centre businesses and stakeholders, focused on improving the vitality and vibrancy of the town centre.
