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
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.
