THE annual Priory Fair has grown this year into a three-day extravaganza of entertainment, offering cabaret, sing-alongs and old school disco in the run-up to the traditional Saturday school fete on May 27.

A firm favourite among local school fetes, the Priory Fair will offer all the attractions, kids’ activities and entertainment that it has become famous for in its 28 years.

This year’s festivities will kick off on May 25 with the Ticket to Ride show in the beer tent, with local band Axyl paying tribute to Queen and the Black Velvet Band celebrating The Beatles.

Friday has big hair, neon colours and punk in store with an 80s disco dress-up party in the beer tent. There will be prizes for the best-dressed individuals.

On Saturday, the real fun will begin as the Priory Fair will be in full swing with funfair rides and plenty of kids’ activities, stalls rich with food delights and treasures to be found among donated books and bric-a-brac.

A jam-packed entertainment programme will also form part of the day. Finally, the fair will close off with a showcase of the school’s own future stars in Priory’s Got Talent, where pupils from Grade 2 to 12 will demonstrate their talents in acting, singing, dancing and music in the school hall from 3pm.

Other activities on offer will include a dog show and a variety of sport, martial arts, gymnastics and dancing displays.

A portion of the funds raised at the fair will be donated to Vonnie’s Rescues, a local haven caring for unwanted pets.

The annual Priory Fair will take place from May 25 to 27 at St Dominic’s Priory School in Godlonton Avenue, Miramar.

Entry to the fair is free. Tickets to various activities will be sold at the fair.
