The Sound Of Music
The Music Fair at Blackmore Gardens offers the chance to meet the makers, try their instruments and enjoy the relaxed and creative atmosphere. With seating immediately outside the music fair, to try out your instruments, in the shade of the trees in the gardens, it is possibly the most unique setting for this kind of fair in the UK.
This year also sees a small courtyard in the centre of the Music Fair for you to try out your new purchases or discuss your needs with the traders.
Artists’ latest CDs will be on sale at the Ham Merchandise stall, as well as at venues where artists appear.
