THE MARYLEBONE SUMMER FAYREprovides everything you would expect from a traditional village fete – food, drink, music, children’s activities, craft stalls, a farmers’ market, tombola and lashings of community spirit. But because it takes place right in the heart of central London it also has a number of advantages over its more parochial cousins – a music stage featuring some of the most exciting up-and-coming acts in the country, the participation of some of London’s finest restaurants and retailers, and an amazing diversity of activities.
THE HOWARD DE WALDEN ESTATEhas been hosting the Marylebone Summer Fayre every June for twelve years now, and each year it returns bigger, better and with even greater levels of local participation. As well as showcasing the best of what Marylebone has to offer, and just being a thoroughly good day out, the event has another important purpose – raising money for good causes. This year’s charity partner is currently TBC.
The Marylebone Summer Fayre is organised by The Howard de Walden Estate.

The Marylebone Summer Fayre Tombola is run by Sandfords Estate Agents and is situated opposite the Sandfords premises at 6 Paddington Street.
This year we are proud to be support COSMIC (Children of St Mary's Intensive Care) and their More Smiles Appeal.
Every Year, the COSMIC unit at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington provides life saving care for over 400 patients. However demand for their services out strips supply which means over 200 critically ill children are turned away every year because of not enough beds. Sometimes children have to be transferred hundreds of miles away for treatment.
The More Smiles Appeal is to raise two million pounds to refurbish and expand the unit to create a state of the art facility. The new unit will have 15 beds, almost doubling the current number, allowing more than 200 extra children to be cared for each year. There will also be new equipment, a dedicated parents’ room and a private room allowing space for doctors and nurses to provide emotional support and care to families whose children are seriously ill. Alongside this will also be the refurbishment of a ward to provide dedicated emergency onsite parent accommodation so that parents are within ‘dressing gown distance’ of their critically ill child.
Saturday Night Pop-up Cinema
SATURDAY 18TH JUNE 2016: Paddington Gardens will play host to an evening of music, cinema, food and drink the evening before the Fayre, in collaboration with Nomad Cinema.
