With only three weeks to go until the event of the year for the Norwich Lanes Association, plans are well and truly underway to make the Summer Fayre 2015 an event to remember! This year, the Maddermarket Quarter is busier than ever, with a whole heap of festivities to keep the crowds fed, watered and entertained. Here’s a breakdown of what’s on offer so far…
Sinsins Boutique of Love, 2A Charing Cross
Our goal for the Norwich Lanes Fayre week will be putting romance back into relationships. Anyone that makes a purchase saying ‘It’s just the birds and the bees’ will be rewarded with one of our special romance packs. These little goodie bags will contain essential items for a night of romance including a scented tea light, petal confetti, sensual bubble bath, Liquid Silk lubricant and a discount voucher for their next purchase from us
To continue the romantic theme outside we’ll be offering a new experience to the folk of Norwich - ice cream topped with flavoured ID Frutopia lube of your choice (It is surprisingly delicious!) Yes, it's a novel idea... but when introduced to us at a recent trade fair, we knew it was an idea we just had to share. With six mouthwatering flavours to chose from, we hope you'll pop by our stall for a try. Please be sure to say hello to Bradley (Frutopia's rep) who is coming all the way from Newark just to be with us for the day. What Bradley doesn't know about lubes is not worth knowing!
Maddermarket Kitchen Stage Performers Sponsored by Easters, 20 St John Maddermarket
Our neighbours two doors down have taken great measures to ensure all visitors to our quarter are entertained. With live bands and DJs spinning funky tunes, awesome wall art along the alley and of course plenty of delicious food! For the early arrivers, there'll also be a chance to join in with The Intellectual Hooligans for a game of "Who's line is it anyway" - enjoyment and laughter guaranteed
Music artists include…
Aphra, Maroubra, DJ Rokk,Tibetan Night Terrors & The Piratones
Lanes Live Art Wall, St John Maddermarket Street
Curated by Frazer at Moosey Gallery, just around the corner on Bridewell Alley, A team of Norwich's most contemporary street and lifestyle artists will be painting the Lanes and selling their wares. Adding a touch of colour to our already vibrant city, this spectacle is not to be missed!
Ruth Knapp, Frazer Bailey, Anmar Mirza, SHHHH, Liam Clark
Maddermarket Theatre, St John's Alley
The Maddermarket Theatre will be throwing opening its doors as part of this year’s Norwich Lanes Fayre. Built in 1794 as a Catholic Chapel, but transformed into a gem of a theatre in 1921, there is so much history to this place. All day they will have people on hand to talk to you about the theatre and tell you how you can get involved.
That’s not all, they’ll also have…
Art and craft stalls, food stalls, storytelling, live music in the churchyard next door, face painting, the Redwell Bar, a shakespeare themed GoGoDragon in the courtyard, vintage clothes rail, Mad Red Theatre School, indoor and outdoor seating.
Ali Bongo, 22 Saint John Maddermarket
The team at Ali Bongo's next door are going to create an outside shisha bar reminiscent of Syrian and Egyptian tea houses found throughout the Middle East! Expect a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for people to experience our glorious Norwich Lanes with sofas, blankets and bean bags. They will be charging a nominal fee for the use of shisha pipes, with every group using the shisha café receiving a raffle ticket... At the end of the day they will give away all of the shisha pipes used #result!
As you can see there's plenty to offer, (and this is just in our end of town!!) we just need you to come along and support our efforts in making this a truly fabulous day! Please spread the word, bring your family, friends and smiles. We hope to see you with us. If you have any questions before the big day, you can get in touch with us here and we'll do our best to help
LONG LIVE LOVE
