Shipston set to transform into a Woolly Wonderland

Wool FairThe wait is almost over for this year’s Wool Fair, which will once again take place throughout the bank holiday weekend from 27th - 29th May.

This year’s event will feature a mixture of popular favourites and new attractions, including Shipston’s first public display of yarn bombing, where trees, street furniture and other items are covered in hand knitted or crocheted art.

The Wool Fair is a true community event, with many volunteers donating time and energy to putting on a great show, which is free to attend. As well as the main fair on bank holiday Monday, Totally Locally will be holding an arts and crafts fair on the Saturday and Shipston Rotary will host a community Songs of Praise at St Edmund’s Church on the Sunday.

Mayor, Ronnie Murphy, said: “The Wool Fair is the town’s opportunity to put on a show which celebrates Shipston’s unique heritage. The fair has become so popular that it has grown into a three day event and we look forward to welcoming residents and visitors throughout the weekend.”
