Organisers predict tarot cards will be popular addition to fair

TWO new additions to the Franklin House Heritage Fair promise to put a new twist on the event.

An old favourite, the chocolate wheel, will be joined by tarot card reading sessions by Launceston tarot card reader Queenie at Franklin House's major fund- raiser for the year.

The readings are a follow-on from the popular "tarot and tea" readings at the house on the last Tuesday of each month.

Franklin House property manager Hilary Keeley said the fair would be a wonderful day for the whole family at the Youngtown property.

"It fits in with the age of the house, with the idea of a Victorian heritage fair where all the community comes together, that is what we're aiming for," Ms Keeley said.

"It's nice that we can open the grounds up and have people wandering through.

"It's a free event, but if they want to go in the house it's a gold coin donation."

For the kids there will be a maize maze, face painting and heritage games.

There will also be a Reptile Rescue display, croquet on the lawn and the Blessing of the Pets at St James Church at 12.30pm.

Irish dancers and Launceston RSL pipes and drums will provide entertainment.

The Franklin House Heritage Fair will be held from 10am to 2pm tomorrow.
