This year’s fifty-fifth Ploenchit Fair was held on Nov. 24 at the Bangkok Pattana International School. Organised annually by the British Community in Thailand Foundation for the Needy (BCTFN), the fair supports a range of diverse charity projects throughout Thailand, promoting self-sufficiency and improving the lives of the needy. With plenty of fun activities for the kids, a Petticoat Lane of stalls and many food and beverage outlets from some of Bangkok’s most popular outlets, such as The Londoner, Tenderloins and Witches Tavern, there was something for all the family. Unfortunately the British weather spoilt proceedings somewhat with rain stopping play for some of the live music performances. Still fun was had by all and much money was raised for a worthwhile cause.
