Mill Road Winter Fair


Hosted by the Argyle Street Housing Coop and held at the annual Mill Road Winter Fair, this event aimed to reach the widest possible audience… and it sure did.

With thousands of visitors, the Mill Road Winter fair was the perfect opportunity for Magnificent Revolution to engage with the public and raise awareness amongst all age-groups. five bikes and a stage, that’s all it takes to put a smile on many faces…
