Nighttime adds excitement to fair

Classrooms will be transformed for the enjoyment of children and parents at the St Mary’s Springtime Night Fair.
‘We have some props in the room so people can enjoy dressing up with their friends and getting their
photos taken.’
This is the first time the fair has taken place at night and the nighttime setting will be fully used.
One of the organisers of the fair, Jacqui Byars, said one of the classrooms, the second in a sequence of activity-filled rooms, would be set up as a glow zone.
‘‘The room will be fully blacked out and children can enjoy a blacklight disco with flashing LED lights, glowsticks and glow-in-the-dark facepaints,’’ Ms Byars said.
She said the room would follow a classroom themed as a ‘‘Carnival Chaos’’.
Ms Byars said this room would be filled with games and prizes for children.
‘‘They will be able to get temporary tattoos, horror makeup, sweets and games with prizes,’’ she said.
It is the third room and the fourth room where children will exert most of their energy, on board two bouncy castles.
One castle is a pirate ship and the other an enchanted forest.
There will be a photo-booth room, where children can equip themselves with fun props and have their photos taken for a great memento of their night at the fair.
‘‘We have some props in the room so people can enjoy dressing up with their friends and getting their photos taken,’’ she said.
Ms Byars said the last room was slightly more adultfocused, with baking, raffles and craft stalls.
The pupils have also made Christmas-themed craft creations, which will be available to buy.
