Important info

On the day of the Fair, stewards wearing hi-vis jackets with Mill Road Winter Fair on the back will be available to assist you. To help ensure your safety, please comply promptly with any instructions from stewards. If you see anything suspicious or unsafe, please report it to a steward immediately. In an emergency, follow instructions from stewards or the emergency services. 

First Aid

If you require First Aid, please ask the nearest steward or go to Event Control.

Event Control

Event Control and First Aid are both located in the rear of the Baptist Church, 178 Mill Road, on the corner of Stockwell Street.

Missing children

Please arrange your own family meeting point in case you become separated. Report missing children to any steward or Event Control.

Caution – vehicles!

While Mill Road (between East Road and Coleridge Road), the top of Gwydir Street, the top of St Barnabas Road and the entrance to Ironworks will be closed to most traffic (including all cyclists) between 9.00am and 5.30pm on the day, there will be some vehicle movement. Pedestrians should exercise particular care before the road is fully closed. Re-opening will occur gradually, so drivers and pedestrians should take extreme care.

Pedestrians will be required to make way for emergency and other vehicles within the closure area, from time to time. There is no access to the road closure without permission. Permitted vehicles must drive at walking pace, exercise extreme care for pedestrians, and follow any steward instructions.

Mill Road is a residential street. Please respect residents and do not trespass in private gardens.
