Join us for all the fun of the Carnival Fayre at Gostrey Meadow this year! The riverside venue is a more relaxed, safer and larger area than our previous Castle Street location. This meant that our last Carnival – back in 2019 – we had a record number of stalls and the people of Farnham and the surrounding area came in their thousands to enjoy it all in the sunshine.
The Fayre runs from 2.00pm until 9.00pm and for much of that time you’ll be entertained from the stage by terrific bands, both local and from further afield, in a wide range of musical styles. There’s always a variety of food stalls and drinks tents to satisfy all tastes and all age groups. And there is also a large children’s play area, including entertainers who’ll keep the younger visitors fully entertained.
With all this, we can guarantee that there’ll be something for everyone – truly all the fun of the Fayre!

• CALLING ALL STALLHOLDERS •
Roll, roll up and get your stall space here! We only have around 40 non-food stall spaces available each year and around 6 food stalls and spaces are taken up quite quickly. We try to minimize stalls offering the same type of products in order to add variety and avoid competition for stall holders, so you need to get in quick – because when they’re gone, they’re gone!
Commercial business spaces are charged £50, charities are free and food stalls are available from £200.00. If you would like to make an enquiry regarding a stall space, please contact either Barry Coleman on email@example.com or Mark Barry on firstname.lastname@example.org.
