Buckham Fair began in 2008 and owners, Actor Martin Clunes and his wife Phillipa, quickly realised that the land would be perfect to hold an old-fashioned type Fair, a perfect venue for the community to have fun and also raise money for local charities.
As keen horse, pony and dog lovers they’ve also incorporated a small pony and dog show into the day. Classes in both have grown year on year and now the schedule is packed full with many and varied events including dog displays, heavy horse displays, vintage cars and scooters.
Over the years Buckham Fair has grown bigger and better – this year amongst other rides they will have a big wheel, dodgems, a carousel and a helter skelter, perfect for the kids’ to burn off some energy! There are also trade stands selling local products and the Food Court has grown to include an inside tented ‘Deli’ area.
This year the Buckham Fair will be raising funds for the Julia’s House Children’s Hospice, a fantastic local charity who have who have helped many children with life-limiting illnesses.
