Family Fun At Wimbledon Village Fair

Dancing on Ice Star to open June 23 event

This year's Wimbledon Village Fair will be opened by former Dancing on Ice contestant, free runner and James Bond actor Sebastien Foucan.

The event, which takes place on Saturday June 23, is the Wimbledon Guild's flagship fundraising event attracting up to 20,000 visitors, and featuring more than 200 craft stalls, a Horse Show and Fun Dog Show, two food villages and a farmers' market.

Sebastien (pic left from Jon Lucas) will open the show at 11am, and at 11.30am he will set a challenge on this year's new attraction, The Big Red Balls, - based on the BBC1 TV Show Total Wipeout - where the first contender to beat his time will receive a prize.

He will then be available at 12 noon by the Wimbledon Guild's Tea Garden for photo opportunities and autographs in exchange for donations to the local charity. While you are waiting, you can enjoy the best of summer fare from Tea Garden which will be offering cream teas and cupcakes.

It's a brilliant day out for everyone with loads of fun activities including Mr Alexander's travelling show, pony rides, Zorb Balls, rodeo sheep and human table football, candy floss and Krispy Kremes.

The Wimbledon Village Fair raffle will be offering prizes including restaurant vouchers, theatre tickets and spa treatments. Tickets will be on sale across the fair for £1 each.

Live entertainment takes place on the central stage all day long including a star act from The New Wimbledon Theatre and you can also enjoy funky beats from the Berkeley Homes' Jazz Tent. The International and British Food Villages will offer everything from burgers, hog roast, paella and toasties to Thai, Moroccan and Hakka Chinese and Indian food on offer.

Wimbledon Guild's Fundraising Manager, Anna Cullen-Crouch said: "I am so proud of the fair - it is such an exciting day out and proof of what team work within the community can achieve! We are so grateful to everyone who is involved including: our sponsors, the volunteers, the stall holders and every member of staff from the Guild; all who help make this event the fabulous day it is".
