No sleep till Hammersmith

A huge thanks to all who came to visit us on Beach Lawns, Weston Super Mare and at West Wycombe, Ringwood and the Great Dorset Steam Fair, where we had a great time despite the mud. On Friday night we blacked out the Ark in wartime fashion - great atmosphere!

We are now reconvening for next weekend's Fair at Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith. See you there!

Ringwood Fair cancelled Bank Holiday Monday!

Unfortunately due to the great English Bank Holiday tradition,  extremely heavy rain has meant that we are having to cancel our Fair at The Bickerley, Ringwood, today.

Thanks to all of you who came along over the weekend - hope to be back with you again in the future! Apologies to all who were planning on coming along today.

Bank holiday fun and beyond

Thanks to everyone who came to visit Carters Steam Fair at our last-minute site in West Wycombe and to all those who came along to Carters Rock'n'Roll Fun Fair at Beach Lawns, Weston Super Mare!

The Fair at West Wycombe was great - we're now packing up to move to a brand new venue for Carters: The Bickerley, Ringwood, for the bank holiday weekend.

After that we will be bringing the Gallopers, the Ark, the Steam Yachts and the Chair-o-Plane to the Great Dorset Steam Fair for the first time, where they will be joining Joby Carter's Freak Show which has been a regular attraction there for a few years.

The Rock'n'Roll Fun Fair will be at Beach Lawns, Weston Super Mare, until the 31 August and includes popular thrill rides like the Dodgems, Dive Bomber, Skid and Octopus as well as Cadell's Ghost Train.

Come along and enjoy the fun!
