We've packed the summer 2022 issue with practical ideas and information which will help you to make the right choices when it comes to your summer fair. Our back-to-basics guide to summer fairs walks you through the essential steps. If you're baffled by event logistics, take a look at 'From field to fair'. For fresh ideas that don’t mean re-inventing the wheel, take inspiration from the family-friendly festivals piece 'From fair to festival'. Your summer celebration is about more than just the content. It’s a chance for parents to reconnect to the school and for your association to raise its profile (see 'Hotspot') and celebrate successes.
