Organised by Martin Clunes and his wife Philippa.
"After moving to our farm in 2007 we bought a new plot of land, one of the few pieces of flat land in Beaminster. We realised that the land would be perfect to hold an old-fashioned type Fair, perfect for all the community to have fun and also raise money for local charities. In fact we have since found out that there is an Ancient Charter that allows the holder of the land to hold a Fair each year – even more perfect!"
"We also wanted to include a small pony and dog show. The classes in both have grown year on year and now the schedule is packed full with many and varied events including Police Dog Displays, Heavy Horse Displays, Vintage Cars and Scooters. Over the years the Fair has grown bigger and better, including Big Wheel, Dodgems, a Carousel and Helter Skelter."
