THE ANNUAL Monifieth Mediaeval Fair takes place in the Reform Street car parks in the centre of town on Sunday, June 19, from 12.30 p.m. and will feature fun for all age groups.

Organiser George Mitchelson told the Guide & Gazette: “The event is planned with families in mind with a whole host of attractions. Our Mediaeval Fairs are legendary, and a varied programme of fun events has been organised for this year’s event.”

There will be live music in the form of a ‘guid blaw’ from the Monifieth Boys’ Brigade Pipe-Band, contemporary ceilidh music from the Cutting Edge Ceilidh Band, and some exciting sounds from two local bands from the 4Real community group.

Young people from the Wilma Tolmie Dance School will be entertaining with highland and character dances, the River Valley Stompers will be putting their best feet forward in a display of Line Dancing, there will also be a display of Zumba with a chance to participate, and a performance of exotic Egyptian dancing.

Monifieth Amateur Dramatic Society will present a snippet from their forthcoming show ‘Dad’s Army’, and the Encore Community Glee Choir will be entertaining with songs.

Are you a bonnie baby? Take your proud mum, and granny along to the fair and enter the bonnie babies competitions. Age groups are up to six months, six to 12 months and one to two years. The bonnie babies event will take place in the Crown Inn function suite at 2 p.m.

Two more competitions are on offer. The Fancy Dress contest is always popular, and it’s time to pull out costumes from the back of the wardrobe. Age-groups are under five years, five to seven years, eight to 12 years and 13 years and over.

And there is a special contest for our four-legged friends in the Exempt Dog Show, with all the usual categories.

A fair would not be complete without stalls and a mini-carnival for the youngsters. The organisers invite you to come along and join the fun in the Reform Street car parks.
