Get ready for Buckham Fair

August 15, 2017 by Tracy

We are thrilled to have been nominated as Buckham Fair’s Charity of the Year for 2017. The event is truly spectacular and takes place on this coming Sunday (20th August).  Martin and Philippa Clunes, together with their organising committee, hold the Fair on an annual basis supporting local charities.  We were fortunate to be beneficiaries in 2011 and 2014 where £35,000 and £76,000 was raised which is absolutely incredible.

Buckham Fair is a great, old-fashioned, vintage fair that takes place in Beaminster, Dorset. This family day out offers all visitors a wide variety of things to see and do, whether you enjoy the funfair, or browsing through some of the best local artisan creations, indulging in some of the finest local foods from the area, taking part in some of our many horse and dog show activities, or simply watching enjoying the spectacles in the main display ring – it has something to offer for everyone.

This year’s event looks set to be the best yet with more incredible displays than ever.  One surprise recently announced is that there will be a very special guest attending this year.  Featuring in one of the dog show contests is the one and only, other Man-behaving-badly, Neil Morrissey.  For many who know Neil, you will be familiar with his antics as character Tony, sharing a flat with his best mate Gary (Martin Clunes).  Neil will be the special guest featured in the ‘Dog that looks most like Neil Morrissey’ class.  Definitely one not to be missed!

A very big thank you goes to Buckham Fair for all their hard work and we simply can’t wait for this weekend!  No matter the weather, it’s going to be incredible!

Gates open at 09.00 Tickets: £7 Adults, children under 16 go free! (Tickets are only available from the gate on the day.  No tickets sold in advance).
