Fulking Fair

Pandemic regulations allowing, Fulking Fair will be held on the North Town Field on Sunday 8th August 2021 from noon until 5:00pm. It will be lead by the RSPCA dog show. Arrangements are continuing to crystallize: drinks will be served by Bar4AllEvents; Rushfields will be coming with their very tasty pies; other stallholders will include the National Trust, the Woodland Trust, Fudge Delights, Millybug dog collars and leads, A Chip Off The Block, Gourmet Foods, Usual and Unusual Plants and Kirshanda with It’s All Good Eco.

At about 2:00pm on Sunday 28th July 019, I stood in the middle of the North Town Field and realized that the Fulking Social Committee together with Allsorts Dog Rescue and quite a few helpers had created as near to a perfect village fair as you will find.

Perfect weather, exotic dancing, lovely dog show, a great selection of stalls, tombola and model steam engine, really enjoyable teas and food, an exciting tug of war, fun kids games, wonderful music and a highly professional bar were all enjoyed by the many visitors. It was truly memorable.

It is too early to announce the financial details but there is sufficient evidence to tell you that it was profitable and improves our reserves for village hall and North Town Field requirements.

What a wonderful Fulking weekend! It will be quite a challenge to follow this up with a repeat performance on Sunday 8th August 2021 (but put that date in your diary!). And I am delighted to report that Brighton RSPCA will be joining us on that date with a fun Dog Show.

The most recent Fulking Fair was held on Sunday 28th July 2019 in the North Town Field, Fulking, and incorporated an Allsorts Dog Rescue Fun Dog show. There was free parking in Downside Meadow and there were many stalls along The Street. The fair opened at 12:00 noon with dancing through the village by the Marta Scott Dancers and it finished at 5:00pm. The dog show ran from 12.30pm until 3:00pm. An entry donation of £1 per adult was requested to help cover the cost of set up, children 16 and under were admitted free.

There were teas and cakes in the village hall and beer and Pimms in the marquee. In addition to the extensive food area, there were tombolas, pony rides, a tug of war, live music, a puppet show, a mini bungee jump, a coconut shy, stocks, tattoo painting, and other games for children.

Fulking Fair was the winner of the Argus Community Event of the year in 2014 and was described as being ‘renowned for holding one of the best fairs ever to grace the county’s glorious countryside’.
