The Largest Free Event on Romney Marsh
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.

THIS YEAR WE ARE CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF THE NEW ROMNEY COUNTRY FAYRE
One of the day’s highlights is the huge vibrant and colourful parade through the High Street to St Martin’s Field for the Official Opening. The theme for the 2019 Parade is English Country Garden. A full programme of entertainment in two arenas will begin after the Fayre is officially opened.
As well as free entry to the Fayre a free car park is provided in Ashford Road.
Alternatively, go green and catch one of the special trains being run from Romney Sands and Hythe Stations, by the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, which will arrive in New Romney in time for the Parade. We are pleased to be working again with the RHDR and details of trains, special fares and timetables can be found on the website of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway: www.rhdr.org.uk.
