Commonwealth Fair 2018, Kensington Town Hall

Saturday 10th November 2018

11.30am - 6.00pm

The Commonwealth Fair is organised annually. The Fair is always a special, enjoyable occasion demonstrating the vigour, the diversity and the splendour of the Commonwealth countries.

NEW - We are introducing Kids zone this year. It is going to be a fantastic party time for children and young adults. There will be face painting, games, songs, mystical fairies presence and whole lots of fun. Bring your kids around for an unforgettable family day out.

As well as providing a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy the food and entertainment of the participating countries and to obtain their specialized products, the Fair has a more serious aim.

This is to raise funds to assist, through the Commonwealth Girls Education Fund, with the secondary education of disadvantaged girls with potential to achieve high academic success in their homelands, thus enabling them to become agents of positive change in their own countries and the world.
