Camberwell Fair 2019 is a free entry festival taking place on Camberwell Green on 31st August 2019, 12pm-9pm.
Made possible by support from Arts Council England, Southwark Council, High Street Challenge, National Lottery Awards for All and sponsors Zipcar, Off -Cut Barbers and Easygym, the Fair will welcome 5000 people from Camberwell, neighbouring areas and beyond to come together eating, drinking, dancing, trading and celebrating this amazing community.
This will be the 5th Camberwell Fair in modern times, but there was a Fair on the same site from 1279-1855 until shut down by the authorities for ‘immoral and riotous behaviour’. Camberwell has changed a lot since those times, and the Fair of course reflects the people of modern Camberwell, but the spirit is the same – a chance for the whole community to come together and unite.
We will be bringing a ‘Mobile Barber Shop’ to the green for the whole duration of the Fair. A 2 Chair Set up bringing the OFF - CUT experience closer to the people.
