The Largest Free Event on Romney Marsh.
The 2018 Fayre was a huge success, with more people than ever attending. Over 400 people took part in the Parade, which was very noisy and colourful, the Seaside theme brought out some extremely imaginative costumes and floats. Crowds lined the Parade route giving the whole thing a real carnival atmosphere. Three bands took part and many of the entrants had their own music as well.
Lots of interesting stalls and plenty of choice of food kept visitors at the Fayre all day. The highlight of the arena performers without a doubt were the two displays by the Southern Golden Retrievers Display Team. Other arena performances included some old favourites such as X-treme Falconry, Morris Men, New Romney Sea Cadets and local dance troupes. A great day was had by all.
THE 2019 COUNTRY FAYRE WILL BE HELD ON SATURDAY 27TH JULY
The New Romney Country Fayre is an annual event held on St Martin’s Field and the Fairfield Road Recreation Ground in New Romney. It is the largest free event on Romney Marsh and is a true community event attracting over 7,000 visitors from all over the South East of England. The original Committee was formed in 1994 with the first Fayre taking place the following year. Since then it has grown into a massive event and has helped to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for local organisations and charities who take part. For map please see contact us
A real highlight of the day is the vibrant and colourful parade through the High Street to St Martin’s Field for the Official Opening. The theme for the 2018 Parade is The Seaside. A programme of all-day entertainment in two arenas then follows.
