About the Holnest Country Fayre
to be held from Saturday 23rd September to Sunday 24th September, 2017.
The event is Holnest Country Fayre and is on Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th September in 2 fields beside Rylands Farm in Holnest near Sherborne. This link is for 2016’s, we haven’t updated yet to show 2017 http://www.futureroots.net/holnest-country-fayre/ The fayre was created purely to raise funds for and to support Future Roots. Please take a moment to look at their website to see what wonderful work they do http://www.futureroots.net/ This event has been going for the last 5 years and had a footfall of around about 1,200 for the weekend. Our intention is to try and double this amount within the next 2 years. Our entrance prices this year were £5 per adult and £2.50 for children. This year we are charging £5 per car, which will include a free programme. (For a small additional fee, you could have an additional advertising spot in this programme). We are also looking at increasing our activities for the children and our main ring. This should enhance the families want to stay for the day rather than just a couple of hours. We have the use of two fields. One we are calling ‘Yesterday’ which will have many examples of our historical past including: • Vintage Cars & Bikes • Stationary & small steam engines • Military vehicles • Tractors • Village of demonstrating crafts • Horse & Cart • Working machinery The other field ‘Todays’ will have the more modern traditional stalls and activities. These will include: • Food & Drink stalls (Hot & Cold) • Craft stalls • Music • Main Ring entertainment • Animals • Many Children’s activities • Selection of Demonstrations • Many varied other stalls Trading days are Saturday & Sunday, with options available to camp from Friday evening. Thank you for taking your time in reading this and we hope to see you involved at Holnest Country Fayre 2017.
