The Marylebone Summer Fayre is somewhat of a rarity — a village fete in central London. On Sunday 16 June, Marylebone High Street closes to vehicles and instead welcomes in crafts stalls, children's activities, a farmers' market, food, drink, music, and of course the obligatory tombola. As well as plenty of independent stallholders, more recognisable retail names such as Cath Kidson, Giraffe and Paul Smith will be participating with special offers and activities. Moxon Street car park will transform into a fairground, and Paddington Gardens will offer visitors a green space to enjoy live performance on stage throughout the day.
Marylebone Summer Fayre takes place on Sunday 16 June 10am-8pm (the stalls will close at 5pm and the fairground at 6.30pm). It is free to attend. Hosted by The Howard De Walden Estate, the Fayre also raises money for good causes and this year its charity partner is Kids Company.
