22nd AUGUST TO 30th AUGUST 2015

The Minister for Culture, the Hon Steven Linares accompanied by Miss Gibraltar Hannah Bado, will officially inaugurate the Gibraltar Fair on Saturday 22nd August 2015 at 8.30pm. The Minister will also be accompanied by the organising team from the SDGG and the Gibraltar Cultural Services (GCS). The Fair will be held at Cormorant and Romney Hut Car parks in Queensway.

At the Fair, a varied range of rides for different age groups will be provided. All rides are priced at £2. Additionally, there will also be tombolas, games and other side stalls including those being put up by local charitable and sporting organisations.

Insofar as eating and drinking outlets are concerned, there will be one bar with catering facilities at the fairground itself and a further outlet at the Family Pavilion. The Churros stall that proved so popular in past years will again be set up next to the Family Pavilion.

The other element of the Fair is the entertainment dimension. A full programme of daily events has been prepared for the Family Pavilion. The Family Pavilion is being organised by Stage One Productions. Admission to the Pavilion will be free of charge on all nights.

Stage One Spokesman said: "We are delighted to have been working with the SDGG and the Gibraltar Cultural Services to plan another varied programme of entertainment for Fair Week.  We continue to build on the success of previous years and look forward to welcoming back all our regulars and newcomers to this year's Family Pavilion".
