Sssshhh…. it’s Charlton’s Horn Fayre this Sunday

It’s the traditional Horn Fayre in Charlton Park this Sunday from 11am-4pm. I wish I could tell you lots of information about what’s planned, but there’s nothing at all – no mention in Greenwich Council’s Greenwich Time weekly, just a banner outside Charlton House referring you to the council website where you’ll find no editorial on it at all.

Search hard, and you’ll get this:

Horn Fayre is a lively and popular annual event attracting more than 2,000 visitors and features stalls from community groups, charities and local retailers.

There’s also music – you can hear from Drum Africa on In The Meantime – and you can find out more about the fair’s history thanks to Alan Palmer on this very site.

The rain might even ease off, too… so it looks like a good day. Shame there’s been so little publicity – if you know any more about what’s going on, please enlighten us below.

Saturday update: Thanks to Sarah for finding a flyer for the Horn Fayre… knobbly knees, eh?

    Odd to have an event like this with no real web presence in 2011. They could learn a bit from the Plumstead Make Merry organisers in how to generate interest in (and find performers for) a community event.

    According to @polishchap “Phil Skinner &The We Should Get A Boat Skifflers” will be appearing there at about 11am.

    I’m not even sure who organises it. I think it’s the council, but… if it is, why isn’t the council promoting it?
