St George's Fayre in March
On Sunday 28th April, Market Place, along with five community artists and even a pair of lost Vikings, enjoyed the popular annual St George's Fayre in March, Cambridgeshire
Overlooking the mound by March Library, where we also enjoyed demostraitons from lots of local community groups throughout the day, Market Place set up the ArtZone, a place filled wih creativity!

The artists worked together on this year's theme, dragons & Vikings, to create fun art activities for all ages to get involved with!
We worked with Hilary Cox Condron to make a scale for a 3D dragon of the future sculpture and with Penny Sobr to make fun & scary dragon masks. Caitlin Howells created a large dragon egg and smaller dragons nests, and Dan Donovan worked with local people visiting the Fayre to create two large murals, one dragon & one Viking! We enjoyed stories with story teller Chip Colquhoun inspired by Scandinavian Vikings, and the odd dragon too!
Roaming Vikings, trying to find their way back to Norway, entertained the crowds and pointed people towards the ArtZone, handing out our creative passports along the way too
Children (and adults!) collected their passports and took them round the ArtZone with them, trying different creative activities and collecting a stamp from each artist! Completed passports were then entered into a special prize draw to win something fun
