Sun shines on Highgate’s Fair In The Square

23 June, 2017 — By Steve Barnett

THOUSANDS of sun-kissed revellers descended on Highgate on Saturday to soak up the fun and frolics of the Fair in the Square.

This year the much-loved summer showpiece boasted a tropical theme – with weather to match – as stalls, games and live entertainment brought Pond Square and South Grove to a vibrant and colourful standstill.

Stilt walkers, circus acts, Hampstead Rock Choir and youngsters from St Joseph’s School Choir (pictured above) and Highgate Ballet School were among performers who wowed the crowds.  One act that visitors simply couldn’t resist was The Sheep Show, where Lenny, Nobby, Dougal and Sam showed off their dance moves alongside Ginger the sheep shearer.
