Alma Street Fair 2015 – another fabulous day!
We set up in drizzle, then the sun came out for another great day in the Inkerman Area.
3 stages with musicians, singers, dancers, poets, DJs … nearly 80 stalls selling everything from samosas to scarves, cards to cakes, massage, fortune telling, hair, nails and face painting.
Lots of residents and their friends and families came out to hear the music, try their hand at painting and sample the goodies. We hope that everyone had a really good time – from the organisers’ perspective it looked like it.
For some great pictures go to the Kentish Towner Website

Too many people to thank individually – but special thanks to all the local businesses who supported the fair, the residents who helped set up and clear up and last but very much not least the Street Cleaning crew who swept before and after the event, took all the rubbish away and left us looking even cleaner than usual!
