The planning for this year’s Rotary Spring Fair is gathering pace and the organising team is looking forward to another successful event on Bank Holiday Monday the 6th of May.

There will be several new attractions for this year including a display by the Gurkhas who will demonstrate the “Khukri Dance” using their traditional knives in a self-defence display. Local Bhangra Dancers will demonstrate their style of Indian dance – you may like to have a go!

There will be a Craft Village with lots of craft stalls and an opportunity to try some craft skills.

Returning favourites are the hugely popular Animal Petting Farm, G-Force, Impact Dance and Wolly the Clown will be offering his circus skills workshops – it’ll be fun for all of the family.

There will be more announcements in the lead up to the Fair.

Tickets are on sale now  and we are pleased to say that admission prices are held at the same level as last year so, for example, family tickets will be £9 on the gate but only £5 if bought in advance.  

Willy Goldschmidt, the marketing lead for the Fair said, “We have had great support from our main sponsor, Come Home to Houlton, and others but have still got space for arena banners promoting local businesses.
