An amazing medieval jousting tournament will be the centrepiece of one of London's largest free outdoor events, the Wimbledon Guild Village Fair.
The annual fair attracts more than 35,000 people to Wimbledon Common each summer and is a landmark in the local social calendar.
Organisers Wimbledon Guild are bringing back last year’s star attraction, The Knights of Middle England, for a thrilling display featuring expert horsemanship, thundering hooves and clashing swords.
The Wimbledon Guild Village Fair is a firm favourite with families, foodies and music fans and offers a fun-filled free-to-enter day for all ages while raising funds in aid of the social welfare charity.
This year’s event has something for everyone, with children’s and adventure villages packed with attractions such as bouncy castles, a climbing wall and petting farm, to a full programme of music and other events.
Two fantastic food villages will offer mouth-watering traditional British and international cuisine and the Farmers’ Market features hand-selected products such as meats and cheeses from the best local producers around.
Four-legged friends and their owners have the chance to take part in fun competitions at the Waggy Wimbledon Dog Show. Races on the day include an egg and spoon race and relay and prizes will be up for grabs for best-dressed pooch and ‘dog the judges would most like to take home’.
The extensive shopping village will have more than 200 stalls featuring treasures ranging from hand-crafted jewellery and designer clothing to colourful hats, homewares and plants. Visitors also have the chance to win top prizes in the Grand Raffle.
Wimbledon Guild this year celebrates 110 years of caring at the heart of the local community in Merton.
