The Midsummer Fayre in photos
Hot off the digital press… a gallery of photographs from this weekend’s Wellington Midsummer Fayre, plus some thank yous to those who made it happen.
The sun shone, the churchyard was filled with some fantastic looking stalls, and the performers were all excellent. Big thank-yous should go to:
- The workforce: Richard Kirby and his volunteers from All Saints, who spent hours preparing the church; and outside the church: Dave, Gavin, Ana, Alex, Helen & Arthur, Ovi & Aitor, Amy & Alex, Andy & Anna, James and Stephanie (see below – her talents were many!), and in particular, Tony, Lee and Tom who started work at an unbelievable 4.30am before going on to do a full day’s work
- The performers: Jack the Jester and his circus troupe, Wynndebagge the Minstrel, Dothill School Choir, Wellington Brass Band, Odd Socks Band, Driftwood, the Shrewsbury Morris Dancers and Above My Head Puppets, and making their Wellington debuts: local soprano Stephanie Pattison, harpist Oliver Ritchie and double bass player Phil de Iongh
- The sponsors: Wellington Market Company and Wellington Town Council, along with two very generous local residents who between them gave us a contribution of £300.

Had a fantastic day – lots of things to see and do. Lots of really good entertainment throughout the 4 hours I was there. Bought lots of great items from the Fayre stalls, the Town Market and shops. It was well worth the journey and I can’t wait for next years. Great event – well organised and fun.
What a brilliant day! I enjoyed every single aspect; gazeebo-ing, procession-ing, browsing, shopping, ceilidh-ing, and of course singing! It was a huge success and I can’t wait for next year! Luckily we have the winter ceilidh to look forward to!! Well done H2A and everyone involved!
Great set of photos! We couldn’t make it this year but will be sure to be there next year to support the event and give out some dental goodies! Zuleka @ Tyrone House Dental Surgery
