St Werburgh’s City Farm Fair is returning on Saturday after a three-year break to showcase the best of the city’s music, art, food and drink.
The area surrounding Watercress Road will come to life from 12-7pm for a one-day, family-friendly festival that is the farm’s biggest fundraising event of the year.
As profits from the fair go towards looking after animals, keeping the farm free and open to all and supporting weekly work with disadvantaged children and adults with learning disabilities.
This year’s event sees a range of bands and up-and-coming musicians, food from local vendors, family activities, and Bristol Samba leading the procession through the tunnels.

There will be a diverse lineup of music from Yiddish to Bhangra with artists taking to the several stages such as Roseanna Jones, Kid Carpet and Injijo.
Also present at the fair will be actor and traditional storyteller Polly Tisdale who will tell some unique ancient folk tales as well as Claire Rammelkamp, a specialist in witchcraft providing a session on traditional folk charm and potion-making.
Tickets for adults cost £12, £8 for students and £4 for teens with under 12s going free. Buy them here
