Kimbolton Country Fayre - 8th July 2018
(Any Make / Model can attend).
Kimbolton Country Fayre is now in it’s 27th year, a charity event for the whole family, organised by volunteers from The Rotary Club of Kimbolton Castle and The Sporting Bears Motor Club. It is held in the beautiful grounds of Kimbolton Castle in Cambridgeshire, the home of Kimbolton School.
In 2017 the 26th Kimbolton Country Fayre and Classic Car show organised by the Rotary Club of Kimbolton Castle in partnership with the Sporting Bears was by any measure a great event. Over 6,000 visitors enjoyed a spectacular array of entertainment and activities including Heavy Horses, Beagles, the Sealed Knot, the Galaxy Swing Band, the Lindy Hoppers, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flypast and of course over 900 Classic cars. All this and more than 60 stalls and other activities, Twinwoods Adventure Race room’s Ford Focus simulator and Knowles Dairy (a unique display of vintage dairy from 1940’s to the 1960’s).
In total over £23 000 was raised for a range of charities including Burns Camp, Samuel Pepys School, HemiHelp, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Ellesmere Opportunity Group, Holly Ward (Hinchinbrooke Hospital), Mission Motor Sports and many other Rotary supported charities and good causes.
New last year were model car racing and the Dream rides were more popular than ever and a flyby of a Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight fully met expectations.
The Fayre has raised over £380,000 over the last 26 years. Staffed by over 60 volunteers on the day and backed by a year of planning.
The 2018 Fayre will again have a fantastic line up of show ring events, stalls and entertainment as well as the usual tea tent, real ale bar, classic cars on display, plus many more attractions and activities for the whole family
The 2018 fayre will be held on Sunday the 8th of July, gates open for general admission at 11.00am. Classic cars for display arrive from 9.00am.
