THE 25th annual Steyning Grammar School Winter Fair takes place on Saturday.

The fair is at 10am to 4pm at the school in Shooting Field, Steyning.

More than 1,000 people attended last year’s event, when £7,800 was raised for the school.

This year, as well as the commercial stalls, school stalls, auction, raffle, food, drink and fun, there is a special programme of entertainment taking place in the drama hall to mark the 25th Anniversary.

Ariel Drama Academy will be showcasing their talented young people throughout the morning. In the afternoon, young people from Steyning Grammar School will be performing.

“We are delighted to be helping Steyning Grammar School celebrate their 25th Winter Fair. It is wonderful to be able to give our students a chance to perform at such a relaxed and fun event” said Marisha Jenkins of Ariel.

Catherine Stone, chairman of the Friends of Steyning Grammar School, who organises the fair, said: “We are so excited about this year’s fair: it has something for everyone. It is a great chance for the School to welcome the local community through the school’s doors and promises to be a fun-filled day for all who attend.

“We are aiming to beat our record result last year by breaking the £8,000 barrier and every penny we raise will be used to buy extra equipment for the school.”
