Date: 08 August 21 — 08 August 21 | Report this event.

Entrance Price free Per person

From 10am-4pm, Andover High Street will come to life at the second Andover Shilling Fair – an unmissable free day out celebrating the town’s Georgian heritage.

Andover’s stunning Georgian streets will light up with a programme bursting with colourful street performers, Regency costumed dancers, vintage entertainment, a food, drink and craft market, traditional fairground attractions, local musicians, donkey rides and fun hands-on family craft activities.

This is your chance to dress up like Jane Austen and Mr Darcy! We’re looking for volunteers who can really enter into the spirit of the day and of course, we can cover the cost of your costume hire.

We’re inviting volunteers to get involved with the following activities:

Dress up and volunteer!

Andover High Street will come to life at the new Andover Shilling Fair and we need your help…

  • Directing stallholder vehicles onto the site between 7-10am. (Costumed or non-costumed)

  • Directing stallholders from the site between 4.30-6pm. (Costumed or non-costumed)

  • Lots of other people who are dressed up and interacting with the crowd throughout the day. We will of course ask you to keep an eye on the High Street, checking that the audience and stallholders are happy and safe and reporting any concerns to the event manager. 10am-4pm (Costumed)

If you need a costume, you’ll have to be able to visit Hampshire Wardrobe for a fitting in Winchester on a weekday before 6pm.

If you’d like to take part, we’d love to hear from you! Please email and let us know what you’d like to do.
