Return of the Mill Road Winter Fair – December 2022

It was so good to have the Mill Road Winter Fair and it was a superb day and a fabulous celebration of local community, talent and experience. Highlights were the fire engine pull and the wonderful marching bands – led by young performers from Coleridge and Parkside at midday and by the Arco Iris samba band at 3.30. This year, for the first time, there was also a full day of film screenings at the ARU Drama Centre in Covent Garden. Throughout the Mill Road neighbourhood, community centres, mosques, churches, cafés, pubs and shops hosted a blend of stalls, artworks, hot food, mulled wine and festive activities for all the family. Mill Road is always a destination for original and sustainable gifts entertainment, refreshment and creative ideas, but we pull out all the stops at our annual Winter Fair. Love Mill Road supports the community aspects of the Fair – the parades, partnerships, performances, volunteering and charities; we provide the backbone funding that ensures the Fair can always be community-led.
