    Hi, can you advise on dates for your summer and Christmas fairs on northcote road? Sophie

    • Hi Sophie, thanks for getting in touch. We know that the Northcote Road Summer Fair is on 16th July 2017. They haven’t confirmed dates for their Christmas fair yet. We will be producing our regular ‘Summer Fairs and fetes around Clapham’ listing in a few weeks.
