Every summer Collis Primary School holds a fair within the school grounds which is open to the general public and includes live entertainment, a large selection of food, children’s activities and class run stalls.
This year the event has been reinvented as a festival of music and food for the whole family to enjoy. It’s even got a new name: Collisbury! It will take place this year on the 18th June 2011, 2-6pm.
You can still look forward to all the old favourites as well as hair braiding, tattoos, go-kart racing, animal dramatics and inflatable obstacles. Everyone is invited to spread out a picnic blanket and spend the afternoon enjoying a delicious selection of food and a day of musical entertainment.
To ensure there is a good selection of excellent entertainment, the school are inviting any local bands, singers or choirs to come and perform on the day. The aim of the event is to raise much-needed money for the school but also for everybody to get together and have fun!
Collisbury is a real team effort: everybody is involved and some of the stalls will actually be run by pupils.
Tickets are available on the door You can buy tickets at the door, £1 (children go free). Don’t forget to also check out their Facebook page.
