Watermill turns into a wonderland

More news, no ads


About 100 local businesses contributed to the fair in addition to the donations from the Friends of the Watermill.
Sunshine set the tone for the day as adults and children enjoyed live music from Cold Ash Brass and local band The Skins, and took part in the many activities available at the fair.
There was something for everyone, with stalls selling cakes, home produce and plants, traditional activities such as the coconut shy and something a little different, with a workshop on circus skills.
Crowds listened to stories in the theatre and children enjoyed the Punch and Judy show, as well as taking part in a fancy dress competition for the best Alice in Wonderland-themed outfit with a prize for the best boy and best girl.
Artistic and executive director of the theatre, Hedda Beeby, said: “It was lovely to see so many people enjoying all the activities and stalls and, of course, the hog roast, Pimms and strawberries and cream.
“We welcomed many who have never visited us before and as ever, all ages mingled and joined in the fun together.
“We are so grateful to all the individuals and businesses in the area who support us by donating to our grand draw and raffles and, of course, to the Friends of The Watermill who fundraise tirelessly to support the theatre.
"This year we raised a fantastic £11,300. ”
