Street Fair

Every year, we host an Historic Open Air Event, in the centre of Neath. It attracts crowds from far a field and is recognised as the fourth largest Chartered Street Trading Fair in the UK.

This annual event has been going on in the busy centre of Neath for hundreds of years and is a huge favourite with the locals. The fair we know today with its stalls set up through the streets and its vibrant Fairground rides are very different to the original fairs 700 years ago.

Traders from the UK and recently Europe, have been attending this four day event. Products range from textiles, bulbs and plants, china, pottery and many more making the total of up to 140 stalls, around the streets of Neath Town Centre. Many of the shops will be open late to coincide with the Fair, giving people a chance to browse.
