The Addington Street Revival Fair is inviting locals and visitors to come and join the event and  ‘dress to impress’ in vintage, historical or retro clothing; any era, any style. Spotters will be out to find the best adult, child and group of people.

There will also be a maritime treasure hunt and craft/clothing tent for children to dress up and make things to wear, as well a pet display of ‘creepy crawlies’ from Pet Haven. Displays from belly dancers, line dancers and in yoga  as well as vintage cars and bikes are also planned.

Bunting and banners

Locals have been busy making bunting to create a unique feel to the street with generous funding from Suzi Nina Interiors, Lydia Wood-Power, The Queen Charlotte and Mr Jeeves Cleaners. Lee Nichols with his Studio on the street is busily giving free of his expertise to begin creating a series of ‘Gems of Ramsgate’ lamppost banners, from photographs provided by residents.

The project is possible through a capital grant awarded by Ramsgate Town Council and now being supported by locals, businesses and resident’s associations. The first six banners are due to be revealed on the day of the fair.
