Welcome to the website for the Umbrella Fair Organisation - a Northampton-based community co-operative of local people promoting sustainable living and community co-operation.
We are looking for volunteers to help in the cafe at the weekend serving light snacks and drinks, if you can spare a couple of hours, come and get involved.
Now open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10am to 6pm.
Come on down and grab a bargin, or get your bike fixed!
"I have a dream for Umbrella
When our volunteers and the public first walk on site, this August, I'd like them to be immediately struck by the fabulous and colourful new flags.
I already have several very talented volunteer machinists and a newly donated and reliable sewing machine so I have all the means necessary to make them. I just need some suitable fabric
Ideally I'd like a budget of around £200 to buy loads of colourful Sari fabric.
So do any of you have any ideas how we might go about raising some money for the fabric or alternatively does anyone know of any colourful, soft and floaty fabric that might be donated....."
please contact us here if you can help
We have lots of performance spaces still to book on the Youth stage and the Global Mela stage....please tell any young or world music musicians you know...we'd love to have them at the fair
We have a wide range of stalls at the festival, with community groups, campaign groups and charities, mixed in with traders selling fair tarde and local goods and items.
If you want to have a stall at the festival..........
10:00 - 18:00
11:00 - 17:00
Please pop in we're always happy to show people round and have a chat and a cup of tea!
