Blandford Georgian Fayre held on the first Bank Holiday Monday in May has been going now for over 24 years. It is an annual event and attracts over 30,000 people to the town on that one day and all to raise money for local charities and deserving causes.

Not only is this unique event the largest Georgian event in the south of England, but it also offers the chance for the people of Blandford to return to the days of old, when community links were at their strongest, when people only needed a focus in order to come together to achieve something.

Who benefits from the Georgian Fayre?

All proceeds raised from the Blandford Georgian Fayre are used to help good causes in and around the Blandford Forum area.
