British Community’s Annual Ploenchit Fair

A reminder to all readers that the British Community’s annual blockbuster fund-raising event for Thai charities – Ploenchit Fair – will be back at Bangkok Patana School, Sukhumvit 105 (Soi Lasalle) on November 25 from 10am to 8pm.

This year, the fair is celebrating its 60th anniversary and, as tradition demands, the 1st Battalion Irish Guards Drums & Pipes Band will welcome the fair’s opening guest, Brian J Davidson, the current British Ambassador to Thailand, who will be attending for the first time.

The entrance fee is Bt150 for adults, Bt50 for children with special all-day ride ticket available.

Activities and attractions for all ages will be held through the day including a live stage for entertainment, international food and drink plus games and thousands of prizes to be won by the whole family. While kids are enjoying video game sessions, the adults can shop for New Year gift guides or hampers from Tesco and Boots. There are also heaps of stalls run by the many charities the event supports to sell their arts and crafts.

It has never been the same since they stopped holding it in the grounds of the British Embassy, where the name comes from. A day out there would just about guarantee that you would run in to someone that you had not seen since the last one. :(
May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil know`s you`re dead!

Since they sold massive lumps to Central, they probably don't have the space to host it anymore!
