We started life in a Market Hall simply celebrating Markets and the season. It was a bright colourful platform with Flags, local food, humorous Signs, live music and all centred around an enormous Allotment. The purpose to share positive stories, embrace the power of community and our inherent relationship with the Planet. 

11 years on having moved onto the High St in 2012 despite all the new challenges this presents those core principles of passion, creativity and positivity are the same now as the first seeds sewn.  

  It’s never been a finger pointing exercise. It’s about Green fingered Awareness Raising folded around heaps of fun all aimed at showing how a vibrant community comes from people investing in each other through Positive Action. 

We take back the High Street, Showcasing the Town with a “Carnival of Plenty Street Dance” showing how creative thinking can change the look, feel and relationship with a space from being a Market Hall, Car Park or Orchard into an Allotment, a Contemporary Dance Arena, a Skate Park, a Cinema or a Wild Zone 

The High Street is where people have always met so it’s the perfect opportunity to plonk a Sofa on the Street sit down and have a chat.  

It’s a Stage on which to create new Traditions for a modern age (even if some of them we do make up!!) events that bring people together either as players or audience, rubbing shoulders together creating community confidence, a sense of identity and civic pride that crosses all boundaries. That’s what lies at the heart of this story.  

We believe in the value of celebrating the Arts giving professional Artists a new Stage, the public an opportunity to see touch, be involved in or simply experience amazing work on their high street and local Artists the chance to perform alongside National and International Performers.   

We don’t sit still. Blackberry Fair is changing all the time. It’s not just an event it’s a philosophy for life that belongs to us all.  The Fair welcomes new ideas that keep it fun, energised focused and relevant, 

Nurturing selfbelief is important for us all. We’ve changed the World we live in ourselves, so Blackberry Fairs small bootprint simply says “Hey if we respect each other, have some fun, use our common sense, we can all still climb trees, swim in lakes and eat food past its sell by date. 

People say they can’t find Blackberries at Blackberry Fair, they’re actually everywhere – How/Why? You, me, us, We are all the Blackberries!

- the what and the how

Blackberry Fair

It’s all about building trust and respect for each other –Blackberry Fair and friends are firm believers in the power of the Human Spirit.

Positive collective action really can make a Big Difference. We’ve created the tradition of coming together once a year on a High Street, the place where people meet and simply celebrating each other’s stories.

Social, Environmental or Cultural no matter how big or insignificantly small, harness the passion of all that Positive Energy and you’ll be amazed what a ‘Community’ of people no matter who they are can achieve.

Valuing Home! – “Believe it or not and it ain’t rocket Science we are all inherently related and reliant on one another because we all live on the One same Beautiful Planet.

 It’s a Big messy picture and not always easy to see the Wood for the Trees but share ideas, inspire and excite each other enough and we’re perfectly capable of finding the answers to build a healthier more balanced world”

Investing with Creative Purpose – We all Like it, Love it or Share it on Social Media World, yet the greatest achievement must be turning Words and Clicks into Deeds. From the High Street to Fairtrade, Pointless Plastic, Climate Change or Celebrating the quality of great Art together, we invest in FUN, turning the Street into one BIG Stage.

 Dress it with Flags, Sofas, Music, Art, Theatre, Poetry, Dance, Colour and Humour, it becomes an exciting inviting world where performer and audience rub shoulders together. Stir up a smile, touch the Heart, Open the mind and you’re half way home to a great chat, a listening ear, better understanding and those vital steps towards Positive Remedies. That’s the “Power of Creativity”
