Following the successful return of the Spring Fayre in 2023, the Spring Fayre will return in 2024 with the much-loved stalls and activities traditionally associated with the major events organised by Our Bury St Edmunds. In 2023, the Business Improvement District (BID) lined up some brand-new attractions for the late May Bank Holiday weekend in the Buttermarket, Cornhill, arc shopping centre and on Angel Hill.
In addition to the return of the urban beach, another highlight in 2023 was a series of virtual reality games for all ages from the very young to the young-at-heart to enjoy. Shoppers browsed approximately 70 stalls around the town centre with a focus on plants, a ‘flower, food and craft market’ on Angel Hill, including local cut flowers, rustic crafts, and artisan food producers. There was also a Vintage Market in the Buttermarket.
