Please note:


  • Please do not try to come to the Fair from the Ibworth direction as this road is officially changed for the day to one way from Hannington for cars and service vehicles leaving the Fair.

  • It is not possible to travel from one side of the village to the other as the road through the village is officially closed from mid morning. 

  • Disabled access: We have parking for vehicles carrying disabled visitors but it is only possible to provide this for blue badge holders.  These parking areas are 200 metres or so from the main arena and much of the Fair is on a grass surface.
