Louth Victorian Fayre will be the biggest and best ever

THE third annual Victorian Family Fayre hosted by the Louth Town Partnership will be even bigger this year.

The fayre on Sunday October 21 will extend down Eastgate for the first time to meet the wishes of retailers.

Over 100 market traders have applied for stalls and more local shops than ever have agreed to open their doors.

Shop personnel and the Louth community are encouraged to wear Victorian costume.

There will be prizes for the best stall, the best adult and the best child’s costumes.

Events organiser Patrick Neville said: “Louth’s great strengths as a market town include its wealth of independent, award-winning shops, its regular street markets including the farmers’ market and the diversity and quality of its local food produce.

“This has now been recognised nationally in the results of the recent BBC Countryfile Magazine poll where Louth emerged winner.”
