Sadly we will again be unable to hold Prawle Fair in 2021.

As you know the aim of Prawle Fair is to provide funds towards the running costs of the Parish Community Hall and donations are given to some very select local charities.

Even though the Hall has been largely closed for the past year, it still has significant overheads and running costs. To help Prawle Fair has opened another Crowd Funder . Your donation will be your entry into the raffle!

We will update you on the exciting prizes on our Facebook page, please click the link to find out more

We very much hope that in 2022 we will again see a traditional Prawle Fair on the green and as ever we thank you for all your help in supporting the community.

East Prawle, Devon’s most southerly village, is the place to be on Sunday 23rd May 2021  for Prawle Fair (Date TBC) –where you can really get away from it all. The Village Green goes back in time hosting traditional fair rides, delicious refreshments, stalls and live music. At 2pm the fair kicks off with the traditional “Raising of the Glove” ceremony which according to legend signifies free trade and clemency during the fair. The Swingboats are always popular together with a Coconut Shie, Darts, Skittles and a Test your Strength machine! There are loads of other stalls to visit from Tombola to Whisky Galore!! For children there is a Fancy Dress competition at 2.15 and Maypole Dancing plus a Slippery Pole to tackle - sticky Candy Floss fingers may help you stay on longer! If you fancy chucking a wet sponge at our local District Councillor in the Stocks I’m sure he’ll be more than happy to cheer you on in return for a small donation. If you’re after a bargain the Bric a Brac stall may have something to tempt you or you can enter one of the fun competitions to see how your Knobbly Knees or ‘Andsome Ankles measure up to the opposition! .
