Blackfriars Summer Fair

Wednesday, June 20, 2012
You might think that moving the customary Blackfriars Easter Fair to a later date, and calling it the Blackfriars Summer Fair, would increase the chances of warm, sunny weather; at least, until the faltering start to the British summer this year threatened to wreck such hopes. In the end – praise God! – the summer came back just in time. So it was, following the 9.30 Family Mass last Sunday, that the fun began.

First the food...


...but then a dilemma: so many stalls, so little time.


Finding our bearings...



...to locate the pirate hideout.


Then some target practice...



...before punishing several friars in the stocks...
(that's a wet sponge, not a piece of cheese)


And for those seeking a more civilised celebration, there were cakes and refreshments in the refectory.


Thank you to all who gave generously of their time and effort to make the event such a success. Let's hope the summer stays with us a little while yet!
