A group of friends put on the first Fair in 1972 and in doing so became the
East Anglian Arts Trust. E.A.A.T. was responsible for every Fair until `77/78
when the Albion Fairs (roughly the same people) began. Albion has worked
closely with local groups:
Ladders Hill, Lyng - Norfolk & Norwich Arts (N.A.N.A.)
Rougham, Suffolk - Green Deserts, a registered charity working towards
the re-afforestation of desert regions.
East Bergholt - Old Hall, Stour Valley Collective.
The Follye Fayres at Heveningham have been put on independently and the
Green Fairs at Blythburgh and Bungay are the work of the gradually
All the Fairs have had the help and co-operation of local people. In
credit and thanks to the villagers of Barsham and Rougham. It is a very
group of friends now.
