THE FAYRE

 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!

Mr. Magic – Trained by his father from just 8 years of age, Mr. Magic has been performing his Punch & Judy for over 35yrs. Based on the traditional story, Mr. Magic has adapted the story to be ‘kid friendly’ with no ‘bashin’. Although Mr. Magic can use a ‘swazzle’ – the gimmick that gives Mr. Punch his squeaky voice, he chooses not to. This is because he says, to allow his audience to easily understand what Mr. Punch is saying and leads to a more fun-filled show. A firm favourite with kids and adults alike, you’ll find Mr. Magic’s show keeps children captivated and entertained, all with plenty of laughs and excitement.

Mr. Muddle’s Magical Mayhem – What a treat is in store for families during this year’s Farnham Carnival. Mr. Muddle the children’s entertainer & magician will be attending to create some magical mayhem with his acclaimed comedy magic show & might even be found twisting just a few balloon curiosities!! To mark the occasion, he’s even going to make an elephant disappear; not a real one, of course!! So, he’ll need a magician’s assistant who’s good with animals, particularly elephants!! Why not come along, you never know you may end up waving a magic wand as part of your visit!

• 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 barry.coleman@farnhamlions.org.uk or Mark Barry on mark.barry@farnhamlions.org.uk.
