The Leaf Hall Community Arts Centre celebrates its 150th birthday this year and to mark it, the building is hosting a year of fairs.

All the money raised at the events will go towards the Leaf Must Not Fall campaign, the £30,000 appeal to pay for essential repairs so the Leaf Hall, the oldest public building in the town, does not have to close its doors.

The first fair is a Spring Fair on March 22 from 10am-4pm as well an Easter Fair, a Summer Fair, Christmas Fair and others in between with cider and wine tasting, holistic and well being treatments and other interests.

Entry to all the fairs is free and the Leaf Hall cafe will also be open serving home-cooked seasonal fare.

Stalls are available for all events and stallholders should contact the Leaf Hall for details on 325764, or email infor@leafhall.co.uk

The campaign was launched last year after it was discovered the roof needed urgent repairs and other essential work needed to be carried out or it would be forced to close. The Leaf Hall was built in 1863 and provides studios for dance, drama, music, singing, exercise and art workshops as well as being a meeting place for the local community.
