Richmond Local Customs: 6 reviews and 27 photos
Every year in May Richmond holds a fair, which takes over the large, grassy Richmond Green. The whole town turns out, along with the surrounding areas, to make this one of the events of the year in this part of London.
The fair is filled with stalls set up by charities who are keen to raise funds and offer you a fun day out at the same time. There is a good selection of stalls selling bric-a-brac, crafts, and lots of cake stalls with homemade looking tempting treats.
My favourite stalls are the tombalas - where you pay money and select a number of tickets for a type of 'lucky dip'. If you draw a ticket with a number ending in 0 or 5 you will win a prize - and as most of the prizes this year were bottles of wine I was disappointed when I didn't win!
There are rides for the kids and sausage sizzles for the hungry. There is also a dog show which another VT'er is rumoured to have won one year - well, not her, but her dog of course!
