FROGHAM FAIR

 

Frogham Fair will be held on a new date in 2020- 27th June. Please put this in your diary NOW. The date has changed to avoid clashes with camping in the fields, school holidays and other local fairs. We hope this means that more people can enjoy this wonderful fair.

In the Main Arena and back by popular request from visitors, are Sky Birds of Prey whose previous display wowed children and adults alike. Two x 35 minute displays are planned with an interactive session for children to participate if they wish. For more details go to https://www.skybirdsofprey.co.uk

Classic Cars will feature early on in the afternoon with 4 specially selected cars being introduced to the audience. Expect some surprises with our expert's suggestions on modern classics: e-cars may feature. Plus of course we'd like visitors to vote on their favourite from the 35 cars on show

Did you enjoy building Lego or Meccano? If so, you will enjoy watching Gosport Steampunk Society build their siege catapult which children can then test out. Ammunition? Come along to find out....

The arena Dog Show and Dog Agility trail are hugely popular and entertaining for all so please bring your dog to the fair - there will be something for them to do! Frogham Fair terrier racing continues to deliver a joyous and chaotic experience for dogs, owners and spectators alike.

As always there will be live music, this year featuring acoustic sets, a rock choir and a local ukulele band.
