Fair in the Square
Highgate’s Fair in the Square is an annual community-organised event. Held in June and centred around Pond Square, there are more than a hundred stalls selling gifts, jewellery, crafts, clothing, plants and every type of food from cupcakes to BBQ.
Over 30 acts perform on the Pond Square Stage and there are lots of children’s activities with fair rides, circus skills workshops and the ever-popular sheep show.
