Summer fun returns for Horsefair’s 30th anniversary celebrations!

This summer the Horsefair Shopping Centre turns 30, which means its annual Summer Fun Day will be an extra special one.

It has been 30 years since TV presenter Noel Edmonds visited Wisbech to open the centre and the fun day will mark this.

The event will take place on Wednesday 15th August from 10am until 2pm. All the popular favourites are returning to the centre for the day filled with free activities. There will be face painting, balloon modelling and a fairground ride for children to enjoy.

Then at 11am and 1pm, Uncle Mick’s Magical Punch and Judy show will take place to entertain crowds. For the first time at the Horsefair, local charity FACET will be putting on a special musical performance too. There will also be a variety of other stalls and attractions available on the day.

Throughout the day, children will be able to take part in the Horse Hunt Window Competition too with prizes for every child who successfully searches for the hidden horses in the Horsefair’s shop windows.

Throughout the week, to celebrate the Horsefair’s 30th birthday, there will be a Horsefair History Photographic Trail where many shops will be displaying old photos of the site before the shopping centre was built.

Kevin Smith, Centre Manager of the Horsefair commented: “Our summer fun day is one of my favourite days of the year. It really brings the community together and it’s great to see so many families out together making the most of the school holidays. We’ve got lots planned for this year; including our photographic trail where people can walk round each shop and see a different photo of how the town centre used to look before the Horsefair was built!”
