Over 30,000 people are expected to descend on the Georgian town of Blandford Forum as the Blandford Georgian Fayre starts on Bank Holiday Monday the 1st of May 2017, between 10 am – 5 pm.
The Blandford Georgian Fayre is the largest Georgian event in the South of England and a highlight on the 2017 calendar – certainly a date for your diary.
You can wander through the traffic free Georgian town streets of the town centre at your leisure as the whole town is closed off for the Fayre. The stunning Georgian architecture of Blandford is a fitting backdrop to this huge street Fayre and market. The fayre offers a wide selection of entertainment to keep visitors, young or old, entertained throughout the day, with street stalls, traditional fairground entertainers and plenty of music and dance to enjoy.
The Blandford Georgian Fayre is a non-profit making group enabling good works in the DT11 area, that asks the public to donate voluntarily £2 on admission to the town.
Over the last 24 years of the Blandford Georgian Fayre links have been forged throughout the local community, bringing offers of help that has ensured the growing success of the Fayre, year on year.
Funds raised by the Fayre have directly benefited Blandford and its local community in excess of £1 million pounds.
The Fayre opens at 10 am. There will be entertainment throughout the day in the Market and Crown Meadows.
