The Christmas Fair here at Riversmeet has been running now for well over 5 years, but this year is different. We have now joined forces with the Dorset and Somerset Air ambulance and ALL proceeds from the fair will be going to this great cause.

The organisers of the fair and Riversmeet joined forces back in February 2018 and agreed to work together closer on bringing a much bigger and varied event “well change is good”. Both parties agreed that the  Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance needed as much money as possible and being located very rurally only strengthened this opinion.

With over 100 stalls in the main hall of the Riversmeet Sports Centre we guarantee a warm and friendly approach to the Christmas fair as bad weather will not halt the fair.

This year so as to add to the Christmas feel, we have a German feel outside the leisure centre with German food, German pizzas and German Beers and mulled wine. To help launch the event we have also hired a OOMPAH man Baron Von Schmidhaus singing and playing German themed entertainment throughout the afternoon so a great feel to this family event.

This is one of Gillingham’s best events so not one to be missed. It’s free for all so please come along and support your local stall holders and food providers.

We are open from 10.30am – 5pm 

ALL of the monies rose through pitch costs, food stalls and donations will go to the Air Ambulance so please, please, please, come and support this great day.
