Hi my name is Mike Wilson and I have been part of the Strawberry Fair Committee for twenty years.
From humble beginnings in the 1970s, Strawberry Fair has grown to be the most popular free, entirely volunteer run, one day music & arts event in Cambridge (and probably across Europe!), attracting over 30,000 visitors throughout the day.
We are not-for-profit and non-political, independent and self-funding. Strawberry Fair is run by the community for the community .
We always struggle to raise the funds to put this event on for free for our community, but this year it's even more difficult with increased costs and less funds available with a greater demand for them.
It costs a lot to put the stage on. If a few hundred of the thousands of people that attend feel able to contribute a pound or two towards putting on this amazing event we would very grateful.
